I am pleased to announce that you can now play squash, squash 57 (racketball) and table tennis at the Fort. There are of course, ‘Covid’ rules in place to ensure as safe a return as possible. Please click HERE for full notice.

Everyone is talking racketball! Easier on your knees, hips and back and easier to coordinate than squash. Racketball is a fantastic game for young, old, men and women alike. Whether you are a complete beginner or an ex-squash player, don’t write this sport off. Have a word with Richard Palmer and he will show you the rules… it’s easy, great fun and adds wonderful variety to your membership!

‘Roll up’ racketball sessions. No booking required.

All Standards welcome.

All equipment provided.

Members free/Non Members £6.

Richard Palmer can discuss all aspects of the Racketball with you. Give it a try!

Wear some appropriate clothing and non-marking shoes. We provide the rackets and balls! Use racketball as a way to get fit and socialise with other like minded ladies. We have a team in the Devon County Racketball League 1st Division for when your standard reaches dizzy heights!

We currently have 4 courts of standard, solid construction. No plywood walls here!

All the court floors have been re-sprung in recent years, helping to reduce the stress on your joints.

Fort Stamford is the leading club in Plymouth and one of the most prominent ones in the county. Historically a 10 court club, squash  and racketball is in our genes.
