Whether you're simply looking for social squash and racketball games or would like to play East of Scotland or National League team matches, Colinton Castle Sports Club welcomes all squash and racketball players alike. With a weekly fitness class, different weekly squash and racketball clubnights for beginners and established club players, club mini-leagues to get to know people, club coaches, club team Summer Leagues, Spring and Autumn Handicap Tournaments and the annual Club Championships, as well as other events, you will find lots of incentives at Colinton Castle to get on court.
Adrian’s Sunday squash club night and George’s Tuesday racketball club night both start at 6.30pm.
Attendance at club nights is good. We usually play best of 3 games, giving players the chance to play 2 or 3 opponents on the same night.
If you are interested in joining, or are a new member then club nights are a good way to get to know other members and see what the club is all about.
Colinton Castle is proud to host Colinton Squashers, a social club night for diverse beginners/improvers, aimed at increasing participation from under-represented groups in squash and introducing new players to squash. Established in 2004, Colinton Squashers welcomes all, including LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, BAME communities/People of Colour and their intersections. Organised by Colinton member and coach Jonathan MacBride, please visit the Facebook page to find out more and join the Facebook group to get involved. You can also email Jonathan at email@example.com
The Colinton Castle Club Championship is open to all Colinton Castle members, contested in April each year.
Spring and Autumn Handicap
There are two handicap scoring tournaments in Spring and Autumn each year.
Both are knockout competitions using par scoring with a single plate event for those eliminated in the first round.
The handicap tournaments give those playing at a lower level a great chance to beat the club's top players, make finals and get their name on the silverware.
Mini-Leagues run on an ongoing basis. With 5 or 6 players in each league and promotion/relgation for the top/bottom players, the mini-leagues add some healthy competition to the regular club games and provide a way for new members to meet people and join in.
Summer Team Event
Colinton Castle Summer League runs throughout the summer months. Teams, made up of club members of all standards, take part in a league competition and play each other twice through the summer. Each player has a handicap based on their playing standard.
Each fixture features 4 matches with points earned for each game won and the top 4 teams qualify for the knock out finale in September.
