Competition Update

December 2019


We have been working over the last couple of weeks to determine provisional seeds for this years JC Lindsay Scottish Junior Open. We’re now working towards releasing the provisional seeds early next week. Following this there will then be a short feedback window for players to appeal any seeding they feel may be incorrect. Strong Justification will be required to support a seeding change. Details of the feedback window will be communicated when provisional seeds have been published.

Strong justification would require the following aspect: over 3 head to head results against fellow players in the draw, tournament finishing positions, and further ranking information. Multiple aspects within all of these will help support a case. The case must suggest a change that results in a player changing seeding bracket e.g 9/16 to 5/8 for example.

We are then aiming to confirm and release final seeds by the end of the week beginning the 9th December 2019 and first match times being available by the end of the week beginning 16th December 2019. As per European Squash Federation guidelines competition draws will not be published until the day before the competition commences (Friday 27th December 2019).

Travel Information – Important Scotland Train Service Information (

We have been made aware that Network Rail are carrying out vital engineering work near Edinburgh Haymarket train station between Friday 27th – Sunday 29th December 2019. This means services on several routes to and from Edinburgh will start and terminate before reaching the capital city.

If you are planning to travel to the Edinburgh area on these dates, please consider making alternative arrangements, particularly on Saturday 28th December. We strongly recommend familiarising yourself with Scot Rail/Network Rail’s further information on the planned engineering work.
