Four separate venues are so far confirmed to host Platinum competitions during season 2022/23, as Scottish Squash are pleased to announce partnerships for the delivery of these important competitions. The full Platinum calendar is an exciting return to tradition after disruptions in recent years, and we would like to thank all clubs for their applications, interest and enthusiasm.
The first Platinum competition of the season, The Scottish Junior Inter-Regional Championships, will take place at Oriam (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh) in early September. With players from across the country competing in five different age groups, it will be an action-packed and energising start to the new season.
In the new year, we enter the main period for Platinum competitions, and the return of the Under 23 National Championships to Scottish Squash Rackets Club in Glasgow. This will be the third time the competition will be run as a stand-alone event since season 2018/19, and is a great opportunity for the rising stars of squash in Scotland.
In February, we have the exciting prospect of the Senior National Championships, which we are pleased to confirm will be held at the refurbished Newlands LTC in Glasgow following a successful application from the club. With a genuine buzz for squash at this lively venue, we are sure to enjoy a competitive and exciting weekend.
In March, the focus turns to Aberdeen, with the Masters National Championships set to take place at Aberdeen Squash and Racketball Club – a third city on our calendar and another headline event to look forward to in the spring.
Please note, event details for the Junior National Championships and the Scottish Masters Home Internationals are still under consideration. An announcement regarding these competitions will be made in due course.
