Utility Bidder has extended their support of Scottish Squash by coming on board as an official event partner of the 2019 Springfield Scottish Squash Open.

Since November, the UK’s leading business utilities company has worked closely with Scottish Squash clubs and their members by providing simple energy solutions.

Utility Bidder has worked in the sports industry since 2009, giving them great insight into the way energy is used within this industry and knowledge of the hurdles the owners come across.

They have actively grown their partnership channel recently by becoming a preferred supplier for English and Scottish bowls associations, being the main supporter for their local football club Corby Town FC and working with Cricket Scotland.

Now Utility Bidder is broadening their support for squash at the 2019 Springfield Scottish Squash Open which began today at Oriam; Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre, in Edinburgh.

The tournament, which was last played in 2001, has attracted players from 18 different countries who will be vying for the titles in Edinburgh this week from Wednesday, April 3-Sunday, April 7.
