Scotland Masters Home Internationals 2024

The 2024 Scotland Masters Home Internationals takes place on the 19th and 20th April at Edinburgh Sports Club. Scotland play hosts to the Men’s Over 40 and Over 60s, and  Women’s Over 35/40 and Over 60 competitions.

Round Three

Double Silver for the Scots in Edinburgh! 

The Scottish WO60s and MO60s claimed second place in the MHI series for 2024, finishing well despite falling to champions England on Saturday afternoon. Congratulations to the English sides who won all three of their fixtures both the MO60s and WO60s categories, with only three match losses throughout – including a superb 3-2 comeback win for Scotland’s Pauline Douglas on Saturday afternoon. A dominant display from the English MO60s saw them obtain a near maximum score of 59 points. 

In the MO40s and WO35/40s, Scotland rounded off the two days in third place ahead of Wales and Ireland respectively and a superb effort by the Scottish ladies on court 5 who tied 11-11 on games with England but lost 3-2 overall. England showed an impressive level of squash throughout the weekend, proving too strong for the competition and we extend our congratulations to their Men’s and Women’s sides on taking home the titles. The runner-up places secured by Wales (WO35/40s) and Ireland (MO40s) meant all nations secured medals on Saturday night which was wonderful to see. Well done to all teams on a great two days and our thanks to the team at Edinburgh Sports Club for hosting the tournament.

Round Two

Scotland and Ireland matched up in the Saturday morning fixtures and produced some highly competitive matches, with five games needed in several fixtures and a series of back of forth ties especially in the MO60s – fantastic to see! The support from the travelling teams has also been loud and proud, with the English and Welsh teams in full voice; England taking 4 wins over Wales in round 2 which included a superb 16-10 triumph in the WO35/40s which went down to the final games in the second string match. England will be tough to catch overall but the Women’s Over 60s are set for a showdown final in the afternoon, with Scotland and England locked at 26 points each and guaranteed medals for both teams – but who will take the title?

The full standings after round two can be found below:

Round One

Round in the books at Edinburgh Sports Club and a late night finish in the WO35/40s between Scotland and Wales saw a first win for the Welsh teams after a close fought 4-1 victory in front of a raucous home crowd. Elsewhere however, Scotland got three strong wins on the board in the MO40s, MO60s and WO60s, and are keeping pace well with England who tallied four wins themselves over the visiting Irish sides. Given the number of home players in contention there is sure to be a strong home support on Saturday for what promises to be a thrilling final day. The standings after round one can be viewed below:
