Sguais Uibhist is a community squash club for the people of Barra, South Uist, Benbecula and North Uist. We opened for play in September 2017 and in February 2018 featured in a short video on BBC Alba.
Thanks to The Caladh Trust who own the building, we were able to refurbish a disused court in Balivanich on Benbecula, which we now use. Refurbishment is ongoing, but progress would not have been possible without generous financial support from An Treas Roinn InnseGall (via the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund), our local sponsor Voove, our local independent councillors, Sealladh na Beinne Moire, CalMac Ferries, Benbecula Community Council and Uist & Barra Sports Council. We are also grateful for the generous donation of equipment from the Highlands & Islands Squash Association and for support and encouragement from Scottish Squash.
We run club squash leagues, with the highlight of the season being our annual winter team squash league, which runs from September to February. Joining the leagues is a great way to find players around your own standard. When running, individual leagues run for about 5 weeks at a time.

To book a court, please use our automatic booking system, which allows you to make bookings up to two weeks in advance. Bookings are for one hour and we'll ask you to make an online card payment of £8.40 (or £5.00 off-peak). A temporary PIN number will be generated for access and sent to your email address (please make sure this is correct!), along with access instructions and the conditions of your booking. Access is via the green door on the Balivanich side of the large grey building on your left as you enter East Camp. You should not use the shower facilities or changing facilities in the building due to the risk of transmission of covid-19. You can find rackets and balls that you can use in the building, but, due to covid-19, you must take these away with you after use. The switch for the court heater is on the far wall, opposite the green door. The court lights activate once you step onto the court.
