Inverness-born Greg Lobban is Scotland's top squash player, four times Scottish National Champion and has represented his country at the Commonwealth Games.

Now based in Sheffield, Greg first displayed his PSA mettle on the Challenger Tour at the 2012 Imet Open in Slovakia, claiming the title after being seeded eighth. The following years saw more success with PSA titles in Malaysia, Switzerland, the USA, England and a proud home victory at the North of Scotland Open.

2016 was a mixed year for Greg when, after making his way into the World's top 40 for the first time, a hamstring injury, sustained in Chicago, ended his season prematurely.

Greg bounced back in 2017 when, in his first run out after injury he reached the final at the Tring Open in England. This remarkable achievement was surpassed only a weeks later with victories at the Vitesse Stortford Squash Classic and a brace of PSA Tour victories at the New Zealand International Classic in Palmerston North and his first M15 title at the PSA ILT-Community Trust NZ Southern Invercargill Squash Open.

In 2019 Greg claimed his 10th PSA Tour title at the Cleveland Skating Club Squash Open in Ohio, USA.

An incredible summer in 2022 saw Greg claim a Commonwealth Games Bronze medal for Scotland, alongside partner Rory Stewart in the Men’s Doubles, before claiming the Scottish National title for a second time, nine years on from his first.

Two more National titles in 2023 and '24, victory at the Pembroke Management Open de Montreal in Quebec, Canada, plus a final spot at the Manchester Open has seen Greg reach his highest PSA World ranking of 16.
