Key Information

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

Currently, there there are 19 teams currently competing in the BUCS Squash Leagues for the 2023/24 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 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.
