Welcome to Cumbria Squash and Racketball
This website contains links to the 9 squash clubs across Cumbria, as well as news and information about squash and racketball tournaments, leagues and more.
Cumbria Squash & Racketball (CSR) aims to advance the sports of squash & racketball for boys, girls, men and women players by providing a wide range of competitions and technical and administrative services. It safeguards the interests of the sports and maintains the rules of England Squash. Membership is open to everyone who are prepared to accept and support our objectives and rules.
Cumbria Squash Rackets Association was founded as a men`s organisation from small beginnings in 1969 by Carlisle SRC, Windscale SRC, St Bees SRC and Workington Iron & Steel Company SRC. The organisation changed it’s name to Cumbria Squash Rackets Association (CSRA) in 1974 – still only a men`s organisation. In 1976 a women`s organisation formed – Cumbria Women`s Squash Rackets Association (CWSRA). This ran alongside, and in close liaison, with CSRA.
In 1990 CSRA & CWSRA combined into a single organisation. In 2011 the name changed to Cumbria Squash and Racketball (CSR), the current name of the organisation, to introduce Racketball and keep it in line with the governing body that had changed its name to England Squash & Racketball. (They’ve now changed their name again, but we’ve kept ours as it is!). In 2015 we registered as a charity – no. 1159944.
We hope that you enjoy our website.
