Women’s Squash League

Seven women’s teams are registered: Division 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4 & 5.  All other requested were granted by the Vancouver Squash League.

Women’s Squash League starts Tuesday, September 27th.

Men’s Squash League

Eleven men’s teams are entered:  Division 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6 & 7.

Men’s Squash League starts Monday, September 26 for Divisions 1 – 6, and Tuesday, September 27th for Division 7.

All teams will be divided up evenly in numbers.  I recommend 7 or 8 players per team.  Captains may have to rotate if they have an abundance of players.  All players signing up before the league deadline will be guaranteed a spot on a team.  After this date players will still be able to enter only if a team of his/her level is short of players.

We are always short on Captains so if you wish to be considered as a Captain, please indicate on the form.
N.B.  Captains who sign up must be of the level of the Division they want to captain.  Captains cannot be “bumped” from the team, however, it is their responsibility to prepare their team, and to confirm time and venue with the opposition Club Captain.

The format of selecting teams will be left to the captains.  As some teams have moved up and other teams have moved down there could be conflicts.  If a solution can’t be worked out teams will be picked from the Sporty HQ rankings.

New rankings are posted on the 1st of each month. Captains should try to rotate their players to ensure equal playing time.  The decision of the Captain is final!  The order of the team will be based on the rankings.

VRC match times will be listed on Quick Draws.  Start times are scheduled evenly between 5:30 pm and 8 pm.

Court schedule will be posted upstairs behind court 2.  Please adhere to your assigned courts.  3 players must be ready at their scheduled start time.  Please be ready to start on time to ensure that the later teams will be ready to play close to their starting times.

At this point of time, we have 11 Men’s teams and 7 Women’s teams entered in the VSL based on last year’s results.  This may change.  If we have sign-ups above what teams can take, VRC will try and add in a team at this level if available with the VSL.

Captains’ Meeting

The Captain’s meeting is scheduled on Tuesday, Sept 20, 2016 @ 8:00 pm after VSL meeting.

Teams will be picked in order of merit of the players ability for the teams available.  In the case of two or more teams in a division it will be decided by the Captains whether to have to equal teams or a strong and weak one.
