The Scottish Masters Closed Championships took place last weekend in Aberdeen and had a strong representation from the Nunholm Squash Club.

Davy Rogan showed that 70 is the new 40 by winning the over-70 National Championships to add to his East and Central titles. Sue Strachan finished runner-up in the over-35 and over-40 competition.

As a result of Masters’ performances five players from the squash section have been selected to play for Scotland in the upcoming Home Internationals.

Jimmy Wells and Robin Ridley were picked for the over-45 team, Abbie Robertson for the over-65’s, Davy Rogan for the over-70’s and Sue Strachan for the over-40 and over-35 teams.
