Competition duration

7 weeks

Teams

3 players per team, plus reserves.

This is a social competition and will suit people who have never played before or are beginners and amateurs.

Match days

Each team will play one round per week lasting approximately one hour on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Two rounds will be held on each night starting at 4:00pm and 5:15pm, respectively. The fixture will be published on SportyHQ once all teams have registered.

Match format

Players need to play in order of strength, e.g. the strongest player in the team plays at no. 1, against the strongest player in the opposing team, weakest player at no. 3, against the weakest player in the opposing team. Reserves are allowed to play as long as they play in correct order of merit.

Each player must play 3 games against their opponent. Games are won when a player wins 11 points. If a game gets to 10-10 then a player must win by 2 clear points (e.g. 14-12). It will take players approximately 20 minutes to play 3 games. Players may leave the court between games for a drink etc., if required.

Score cards will be provided and must be placed under the door of the 24/7 Squash pod located next to the court.

Equipment and facilities

All racquets and balls are provided free-of-charge and can be found in the metal tool box next to the 24/7 Squash court. Players must wear sport shoes. Change rooms and showers are available in the Service Core near the court.

Squash shirt

Each regular player, plus up to one reserve player per team will receive a FREE Tonsley 24/7 Squash Corporate Cup polo shirt to play in. This will be customised with each team’s name. You will need to provide team members’ shirt size and team name when registering.

Due to printing times, the shirts may arrive one or two weeks after the start of the competition.
