Squash Mini Leagues at Kippie

Kippie’s mini-leagues are all played at Kippie for Kippie members only. The mini-leagues are run separately to the Grampian Squash Divisions (above).


The squash leagues are for all standards, welcoming beginners through to experienced players. Please inform reception if you want to join the leagues or email reception@kippielodge.co.uk  

If the league still has some time to run, please organise matches with a few players to find a level.  Inform reception of a requested league to join based on results. 


For each league, two players will be promoted, and two players demoted as applicable. 

American scoring to 15, or as both players agree. 

Players will have until the last day of each month to play matches. 

One point for each game won.

All spaces can be booked through reception, bookings open one week in advance.  £12 Payment is required at time of booking to secure your 2-hour slot due to age: ratio restrictions in place.  Please note this is an unregistered childcare service.  Depending on demand, if required, there may be the option to book the 1st or 2nd-hour slot on the day if any spaces remain.

Session times: Monday, Wednesday & Friday – 0930-1130, Tuesday – 1030-1230 & Thursday – 0915-1115.  More details to follow soon about the session themes.

Aches & Pains Aqua

A fun session sprinkled with movement science. Exercising in a pool provides relief with pain and stiffness in the joints.

It is a great class if you are recovering from surgery or got arthritis.

You will be working at your own ability but quickly will see progression as the weeks progress.

The class takes place each week on Thursdays at 13.50 (1.50pm).

Go on, head to the pool and give it a try!

LutFIYA Saitbayeva

Latfiya has been covering fitness classes throughout Aberdeen since 2015 and we are delighted that she is taking four classes here at Kippie.

"I am super excited to be joining the Kippie team. My love for fitness has made me expand my training skills to include the latest techniques including Pilates and Power Pilates with which I am certified to work with. My workouts are all about precise and controlled movements while maintaining proper alignment. If you have never attended a strength or kettlebell class please do not feel you cant take part."

"Despite on the skill or difficulty level of any class I teach it will be suitable for every level as there are modifications always available,  just like every instructor I work with the client’s needs, to encourage them and always include.I provide options whether you are a pure beginner or advanced."


If you would like to discuss any of Latfiya’s classes before taking part please do not hesitate to contact her via Reception.
