Hi Squash Players
Once again we find ourselves in level two so please adhered to the rules circulated by your club and players that are guests at other clubs please follow the rules put in place by your hosting club – these may differ slightly from club to club. We have been here before and don't be surprised if we find ourselves in the same position again, so please follow the basic COVID rules already circulated ………………
The Grading Review committee spent 2020 working to address issues that had been raised by the Squash Community with the current grading system.
The aim of the review was to ensure we can maintain a grading system that accurately reflects a player’s level.
The decisions and changes made are backed by research and data analysed thoroughly by the review group.
Summary of decisions
1. The Grading list will be re-aligned, and women will sit exactly one grade higher than men. Men will be given 100 points from F grade (600 points) to the middle of C2 (2200 points).
2. Male players between 2201–2299, will be given points to raise them to 2300 points, so that no player is higher than a player they were originally below.
3. Equal Points for win/loss for Women C1 and above
4. B1 and above players will no longer be able to gain 5 points from beating a player 300+ points below them.
5. B2 and below players will still gain 5 points for beating a player 300+ points below them up until 599 points difference.
6. Inactivity points to be removed
