East of Scotland Squash League

The Border Reivers currently compete in East League 3 and the 2nd Team in East League 4 and play weekly fixtures from Sept-April against other teams in Edinburgh and the East of Scotland.  Home ties are a WEDNESDAY NIGHT and this takes up both courts and the viewing area.  Look at the Notice Board for the Team schedule or go to SportyHQ.com

Racketball

Squash courts can also be used for racketball. This is a very similar game but is played with different rackets and a more bouncy ball that is roughly the size of a tennis ball. The game can be rather fast, when played by fit agile players. However, because the ball bounces very readily, it is also perfect for a more sedate game. The club can supply racketball rackets and balls for use by members.

 Juniors

The club has recently restarted the Juniors Club Championship, our current champion is Dima Graham (2018, 2019).  there are ad-hoc junior sessions run from week to week and all standards are catered for.
