SQUASH INFORMATION

 

 

RESERVATIONS

Bookings may be made up to 7 days in advance. A court may be booked for no more than 1 session at a time. If courts are not reserved at the end of your 45 minute session, you may continue on any open court. If you have reserved a court or scheduled a lesson, you must allow at least 24 hours notice of cancellation. Failure to provide notice will incur a charge for either court time or a full lesson.

NEW BOX LADDER INFO
Players are broken into groups of 6. Each group is a “box” that has a month to play a mini round-robin among the other players within their box. The list and boxes are initially set up by the pro according to skill level of players. Scheduling is completely flexible and is entirely up to each player. Before each month all the players will be emailed the contact information of other players in their same box and instructions for score entry. You must keep track of all the game points (scores) as they are needed for tie break determination. When you finish a match the winner goes online and enters the scores at US Squash. The results are public so you’ll know your standings during the course of the monthly cycle. The matches are played by US Squash rules (11pts, best of 5 games). The highest total scoring points wins the Box. In the case of a tie, the winner is the winner of the head-to-head match. In a three way tie, the winner is the player who allows the fewest points to the other players. The winner of the boxes will move up two levels, while the loser will move down 2 levels. The runner up of each box will move up 1 box and the second to last player moves down one box. The 2 remaining middle players will remain in the same box for next month’s play. If you sign up and commit to participate for a month you are expected to play your matches. Protective Eyewear is mandatory! Matches will be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time by both players. The results must be completed and reported by the last day of the month. The winning player is responsible for reporting scores within 24 hours of match play. Scores can be entered by following these simple steps:Log in to www.ussquash.com, click on the following link:enter scores, find the box where you are playing and click the radio button to the left of your name. Players may enter or exit the box league for the following month, by emailing the pro at: aagh@thegym.com, or Bahman Azarm at:bazarm@me.com

SAFETY

Protective glasses are required and available for purchase in the pro shop. The likelihood of injuries will be reduced if players wear appropriate footwear during their game. This reduces the amount of dust/dirt walked onto the courts, keeping the playing surfaces free from the debris that creates dangerous playing conditions. Additionally, non-marking shoes must be worn on the courts at all times.
