The Squash ladder is intended to encourage friendly competition and aid players in finding partners at their approximate level of skill. We try to keep the rules as simple as possible in line with England Squash.
Monday to Friday 7am-5pm £5 per game (offer expires 30th November – maximum 2 players)
1) A player can only challenge the person up to 4 places above them on the ladder.Ladder Rules:
2) New players will enter the ladder at the bottom.
3) If the lower ordered challenger wins they move to the place occupied by the higher player who would then move down one place (this should result in inactive players slowly being filtered to the bottom of the ladder). If the higher ordered challenger wins then the ladder order does not change.
4) If a player is challenged, he/she must play the match within 2 weeks. If the challenged won’t play in that time then the match is defaulted to the challenger. This stops slackers clogging up the ladder. Please only accept one challenge at a time on a first come first serve basis. Please inform Karen if a player cannot play within the 2 week challenge time.
5) A player who is inactive during a whole month will drop down one place for the next month.
6) Results should be entered onto a match card which are collectable from reception and should be handed in to Karen or reception in her absence as soon as possible. Both players must sign the match card to confirm the score.
7) The cost of the court should be split between the players (payment should be made before play commences).
8) It is the challengers’ responsibility to book the court (this can only be done 7 days in advance).
9) If fixtures are missed without a minimum of 24hrs notice prior to match time the court fees will still be payable.
10) The court booking will be charges at normal booking rate. (Please contact reception on 01254 385945 for more details). Each session is 40 minutes.
