Key Information

To play squash all you need is a ball, a racket, a friend and a wall.

Currently, there are 10 institutions currently competing in squash throughout Scotland. The BUCS Squash League for both Men and Women are contested over multiple weekends throughout the academic year in order to lower travel costs for teams and to create a better atmosphere for the tournament – with everyone competing in the same venue.

In an addition, there is an annual Scottish Student Squash Championships, consisting of a men’s, a women’s, and a beginner’s Championship to find the best student squash players in Scotland.
