SQUASH IN THE GALWAY LAWN TENNIS CLUB (GLTC)
Galway Lawn Tennis Club has six courts, including two glass backwall courts. A significant amount of work has been carried out on the courts in recent times with improvements to the insulation a priority. This work is ongoing and the courts are now in excellent condition.
The Squash Committe is elected by the players each season and is tasked with running various events both internal and external.

TBA- Squash Captain
