May I play squash if I have had any alcohol to drink?

You most certainly may attempt to play squash while inebriated. Depending on your state of inebriation, you may want to wear protective goggles (your opponent definitely will) and if you can’t stand for too long, maybe consider some padding.

Note: Alcohol or any other food and drink on the squash court itself is unfortunately prohibited in order to protect the court floor. If you feel sick, rather don’t play squash.

Can I enter as an individual and then change my entry to a team later? 

Yes, but first try to make up a team before you enter as an individual. We’ll try our best to accommodate you if you cannot make a full team by adding individual entrants to teams. DBV Club members, to be able to contact other members, please access the member lookup facility here

Entrants from other clubs who are looking to join a team, please enter as an individual. You will be allocated to a team made up of other individuals. Based on the strength of each team member the team will be allocated to A, B or C section.
