COME ALONG AND JOIN US!
One of the aspects we’re proudest of at the Scotstoun Eagles is the number of female players that we have and we’re aiming to get more! A major objective of our mission is to actively encourage and support women to take up squash. It’s a great sport to play for tons of reasons – fitness, social, individual, competition to name only a few! We focus on creating a social and supportive learning environment in all of sessions. So if you’ve not played before – then don’t worry about it! Without a doubt, you’ll have fun!
All of the mixed sessions are fully integrated and have a great attendance from our women in all of them. So much so that many of our sessions are almost 50% women!
We have a beginner coaching session specifically for women on a Monday evening. We aim to make it as easy as possible for women to take up squash, and it’s always well attended. Don’t worry if you don’t know the rules – here they are here! With an emphasis on being sociable, we do some basic practise skills to help learn the concepts and skills of squash, and then finish with some friendly timed games. All are welcome, and there’s no need to book – just sign in at reception!
We host Ladies Intro sessions regularly through the year, to encourage more women to come along and try squash. If you want to come along to see how you find it, or want some more info, just contact us. If you would like to bring along a friend then that’s no problem either 🙂
We’re hoping you’ll come along and join us!
For those of you with a competitive streak – Join Scotstoun play with our teams. With more ladies teams than any other club in the West of Scotland, you’ll definitely have the chance to test your skills with us. If you haven’t played competitive squash but would like to give it a try – have a read at our Guide to Team Squash.
Competitively, our women have a great record. Our greatest success was winning the West of Scotland Ladies league in Season 2018/19; furthermore we did it with home grown players and members. For a young club like Scotstoun (we only opened in 2013) to achieve this was an immense achievement.
