2024 Squash Summer League Entry Info and Rules

To All Members

The 2023/24 Squash Winter League ends on Sunday 28th April 2024. We will then take one week off (w/c 29th April) from the squash league competitions before the 2024 Squash Summer League kicks off on Monday 6th May 2024. The Summer League will run for 20 weeks and end on Sunday 22nd September 2024.

The window for entries to the Summer League is now open and will close on Sunday 21st April. All you need to do to enter is either reply to this email or send me a WhatsApp or text message.

Members (existing and new) will be able to join the Summer League later during the summer but the 21st April is the cut-off if you want to be involved right from the start on 6th May.

Please see below the format and rules for the 2024 Summer League. The format is slightly different to previous years, driven partly by the Club's increasing membership and partly to freshen things up a little.

Format and Rules

A handicap will be allocated to each player prior to the start of this competition. Each player will retain their handicap throughout the 2024 Summer League. The handicaps will be circulated before the competition starts and a copy will be available for viewing in the Information File at the Club.

There will be 4 periods of 5 weeks each over the 20 weeks. In each period there will be a number of divisions (probably 4-6) based on the number of entrants, each of equal merit and each of identical or +1/-1 numbers. There will be no promotions or relegations at the end of each period - instead, there will be manual changes applied to the divisions to enable each player to play a different group of players of mixed handicaps and abilities in each period.

The 4 x 5-week periods will be as follows:

6th May to 9th June
10th June to 14th July
15th July to 18th August
19th August to 22nd September

The Summer League Champion is the player that accumulates the most points over the 20 weeks of the Summer League, commencing on 6th May and finishing on 22nd September 2024. Additionally, there will be “new ball” prizes for each divisional winner in each of the divisions.

Each player can play as many or as few games as he/she wishes, or is able to, over the 20 weeks, but obviously the more games you play, the greater your chance of success in the overall league.

The Cornhill Summer League is played under American Rules:

· First to 21 in each set.

· At 20-20, keep going until either player is 2 points clear.

· Handicaps apply to each set. Start each set from your handicap score.

All games, best of five sets: 3 - 0, 3 - 1 or 3 - 2, and each player scores one point for playing, therefore scores will count as 4-1, 4-2 or 4-3. There can also be drawn games if the number of completed sets is level after 40 minutes.

Single yellow spot balls only for league games, unless both players agree otherwise. If no agreement, the default ball is a single yellow spot.

Cancellations, no shows and late shows will be handled as follows:

· If a player cancels the game less than one hour before the start time, then the opponent may claim a walkover (3-0).

· If a player arrives on court up to 10 minutes after the court commencement time, the other player can claim the first set.

· If a player arrives on court between 10 and 20 minutes after the court commencement time, the other player can claim the first and second sets.

· If a player arrives on court over 20 minutes after the court commencement time, the other player can claim a walkover (3-0) – League score and points score in MYCOURTS will be 3-0.

The Fixtures Secretary has the final say on any disputes following appropriate discussions with other Committee Members.

The divisions for the first 5-week period of the Summer League will be announced at the "Mid-Season Social" event at the Wharf Pub in Bugbrooke on Friday 3rd May between 4pm and 7pm and then afterwards by another email communication. Another great excuse to come and join us at The Wharf for a couple of beers!

Don't forget to enter this very popular competition - I'll issue a reminder in a couple of weeks.

Regards

John Carrington
