  • A players' initial rating at the start of the season should be within 0.5 of their division (e.g., in order to play in 3.0, a player must be rated below 3.5; to play in 4.5 a player must be rated below 5.0).

  • Women may play in both the Women's division and for a Men's team.

 

How to Join a Team

  • Contact your club pro or your team captain to get your name added to a  League team roster.

  • Teams form by mid-October, though teams may add players throughout the season. (Note: to be eligible for playoffs/finals, players must have competed in at least three regular-season matches.)

 

How to Start a Team

  1. If your club already has a League team in a particular division, you are encouraged to join that team (it makes scheduling much easier)

  2. If you are sure you want to start a new team, get approval of your club pro.

  3. Declare your intent to captain a team. By Oct 1, 2016, you must email the Singles League Coordinators to confirm that you're starting a team.

  4. Find players. By Oct 27, 2016, you must have at least seven players registered on your online roster to be eligible to compete. Players must be current US Squash members in order to be added to the roster.

 

Structure of Playoffs:

  • Divisions with <7 teams: play each other three times, then top four teams advance to Playoffs/Finals (see below).
  • Divisions with 7-8 teams: play each other team twice, then top four teams advance to Playoffs/Finals
  • Divisions with 9 to 12 teams: play every other team once, then everyone participates in Pool Play, after which top six teams advance to Playoffs/Finals (except men's Open has only four teams advancing to the playoffs).
    • Note: Pooled Play is NOT a playoff; rather is a way to schedule the remainder of the season for large divisions.x teams
    • In Divisions with six teams advancing to the payoffs, teams 1 and 2 receive a bye in the first round while teams 3, 4, 5 and 6 compete for the two remaining semi-final spots.
  • Divisions with 13-16 teams: play each other team once, then all teams compete in a seeded Tournament bracket of 16, with a consolation draw, according to seedings calculated following the last regular match. The Final Four bracket serves as playoffs, and the Championship serves as the final.
  • The Men's Open division will have a two round playoff wih the top four teams making it to the post-season.
