Gordonstoun Squash Club caters for the students of Gordonstoun School, currently over 100 students go through coaching each week with an almost 50/50 girl/boy split. Coaching is led by Mr John Georgeson with assistance from a number of staff who work very hard to ensure the students get the most out of their time on the squash courts. The school currently has 3 teams in the HISA Leagues (one in Division 1, and two in Division 2) that play on Thursday evenings. This is a great opportunity for the students to meet other squash players from the local area and to continuously learn the game from their opponents. As well as playing in the local leagues where the students play adults and juniors; regular junior matches are also played against local clubs, with close links between Nairn, Inverness, Wick, Thurso, Orkney, and Shetland. Every two years the school’s squash players are lucky enough to enjoy squash tours further afield with recent tours to London, Gibraltar, India, etc.
“Through regular squash training; activity sessions; school matches; social nights; squash tours; and weekly local league matches, Gordonstoun Squash aims to develop a player that is willing to work hard, has discipline and, is able to interact socially with a breadth and depth of opponents, students, staff, teams, clubs, and has an equal respect for all of them”
