JC Lindsay Scottish Junior Open – Entries Open!

Friday 1st September 2017

Entries are now open for the 2017 JC Lindsay Scottish Junior Open in Edinburgh.

This seasons competition will run from Thursday 28th December – Saturday 30th December 2017 at Edinburgh Sports Club and The Grange Club in Edinburgh. To find out further details around the event and to download an entry form click here. This seasons event also sees the introduction of an under 11 category for both male and female players.

Scottish Squash & Racketball are extremely delighted to announce that JC Lindsay have confirmed they will sponsor the event for a second year with Eye Rackets being a key partner in the successful delivery of the 2017 competition.

Scottish Squash & Racketball’s National Coach Paul Bell said: “The Scottish Junior Open is a rare opportunity for all the Scottish Squash players to compete at such a high level on home soil.  The event is going from strength to strength and we hope by moving the date to before the British Junior Open will encourage even more of the world’s top juniors to compete.  Scotland is on the rise in terms of junior squash and the opportunity for our young players to test themselves against the worlds best will provide a great indicator of just how far they have come.”

The new date on the calendar will allow players to travel to the UK to compete in the JC Lindsay Scottish Junior Open prior to the 2018 British Junior Open which takes place in Birmingham from 3rd – 7th January 2018. Scottish Squash & Racketball are proud to announce they are working in partnership with England Squash to support players to be able to play in the Scottish Junior Open and British Junior Open shortly after. England Squash have arranged accommodation packages to allow all players to remain in the United Kingdom over New Year (after the Scottish Junior Open ending and British Junior Open starting). Further details can be found here. Anyone looking for further information about the British Junior Open should visit
