Bega Squash Club

The Bega Squash club was formed in 1976. The club came in to being after Peter and Val Eaton moved to Bega and had the courts built at North Bega. With Peter and Val’s enthusiasm squash became an instant hit and the club has been strong and vibrant ever since.

With the township of Bega having a population of only 4,500 the club boasts they have consistently had over 100 players in the three competitions each year, and an additional membership of approximately 70 junior players with the Junior Committee running two competitions yearly. 

In 1997 the club moved to its current location at the Bega RSL Country Club at Tarrraganda, when the owner of the courts they had been using sold the building to the Bega Cheese Cooperative.  The RSL had two courts at the Golf Club and agreed to build 2 additional courts to allow the Bega Squash Club to continue running their competitions.

Although Bega is on the far south coast - close to the Victorian Border - quite a distance from other major centres, members are active in NSW and Masters tournaments and teams from the local high school have performed extremely well in schools competitions over the years.

Bega High School teams have always punched above their weight with both the boy’s and girl’s teams frequently featuring in state finals of the State High School knockout competition and team members being selected for state representation.
