2023 World Junior Championships, Melbourne

These are due to be held from 18th to 29th July. Funding to send Scottish teams to this event is required beyond that available to Scottish Squash. It is hoped to send a team of eight junior players from across Scotland (five girls and three boys) and two coaches. A fund raising event was held at ESC on Friday 12th May, when around £12,000 was raised towards the required total of £26,000. For a report and photographs click here.

2023 PSA World Championships

Held this year in Chicago from May 3rd to 11th, ESC players were present in both Men’s and Women’s competitions.

2023 Scottish Masters National Championships

Aberdeen Squash and Racketball Club were the hosts of the 2023 edition of this event, held from March 3rd to March 5th. ESC had an extraordinarily successful tournament, providing both finalists in the Over 35 and Over 50 competitions, the winner of the Over 55 and Runner-Up in the Over 45 events. We also had losing semi-finalists in the Over 45 and Over 70 events. The photo below shows the six finalists – just Colin Cruickshank and Barry Masson missing the photocall. Many thanks to Adrian and Simon for the photo and reports, and the SportyHQ draws are included in the gallery.
