The Scotstoun Squash Courts (North) opened in January 2013 in preparation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, with the South courts opening a month later.
The General Manager for Scotstoun at the time of the squash courts opening was Mark McElwaine, the Glasgowlife Manager responsible for the courts was David Ward (also the SSRC Chairman at the time), and the squash consultant was Martin Woods.
The courts were purpose built for, and used to host, the Glasgow 2014 games, for which there was also a Glass Squash Court erected on the site of the 11 a side football pitch, directly outside the National Badminton Academy. For the Games, the Competition Manager was Linda Davie (the Scotland Team Manager at the time) with Martin Woods as the Technical Operations Manager.
Starting a squash club was a new venture for Glasgowlife, as the only other squash court owned by them was one court at Bellahouston Sports Centre on the South Side of the city. The business plan for the squash club employed a model based on a membership structure and classes for members, as well as court income.
The club started in 2013 and gathered members to play in the West of Scotland Leagues and grew slowly, but successfully. In 2018, it became necessary, due to a cut in public funding, to set up a club that was separate and indpendent of Glasgowlife. The club successfully set up as a SCIO charity in July 2018 with their own separate bank account.
