Waverley has two excellent, immaculate, traditional squash courts, of as high a standard as any in the country. The courts have proper Armourcoat plaster on the walls and sprung wooden floors. They are kept warm by the popular Ambirad heating system and nice and bright by top-grade fluorescent lighting. There is a classic viewing gallery upstairs – with a nice wooden balcony to thump your hand on for loud applause and a great atmosphere!
The squash courts are used for both squash and racketball.
Waverley is affiliated to Scottish Squash and Racketball and the East of Scotland Squash and Racketball Association.
Adult and junior coaching is available for individuals and groups by arrangement with Dave Ferguson on 07963 744717. Waverley Tennis Academy also offers a squash coaching.
