The National Squash Centre is a squash venue in Eastlands, Manchester, England, which was constructed for the 2002 Commonwealth Games. The National Squash Centre is part of the Sportcity complex.

Costing approximately £3.5m, the facilities include six courts and one glass-walled show court (this alone cost £110,000). The show court is moveable: it floats on air like a hovercraft and can be positioned in the athletics hall for all major tournaments. The show court has a maximum capacity of 1,200.[1]

All of the courts can be converted into either singles or doubles courts.

The Centre has hosted the British National Squash Championships since 2003,[2] the Men's World Open 2008, the Women's World Open 2008 and hosts the annual British Grand Prix, a PSA World Series event.[3]
