Doubles House League Rules

Doubles House League Rules:

 1. EYE WEAR IS MANDATORY!! Balls and eyewear are available to purchase when you come to play and at the front desk or with Nicole. Please bring cash or a cheque.

2. All matches should be played on the assigned day for your league unless the schedule indicates another day.

2.1 At least one player from the team must play in order for the score to count for your team. Both players cannot be substituted for a match.

2.2 If both members of the team are unable to play on the assigned day you may request permission from the Doubles Coordinator to play on an alternate day. It is your responsibility to inform your opponents and to arrange an alternate day with your opponents. If an alternate day cannot be agreed upon, your team will then default the match. Alternate arrangements must be reported to the Doubles Coordinator.

3. If one player of a team cannot make your match at your scheduled time YOU must find a substitute player to play. If you don’t find a sub, you will be letting down 3 other players. The Doubles Coordinator is not responsible for finding you a sub. You also have the option to contact the players with a BYE or players in the time slot before or after your court time to fill in for you.

4. Points: 1 point for every game you win against your scheduled opponent. The match will be 3 out of 5 games. If you have time remaining after you play your match, I encourage you to continue playing for “fun”. Court times are 60 minutes. If you are scheduled in the first time slot, try to get there early so you have more time on court.

5. All players must be Squash Club members ($40 fee) and have a Recreation Complex Squash membership.

6. The rules of doubles squash (Hardball Doubles Rules 2014 and Introduction To The Rules Of Doubles Squash) are to be followed for all House League play.

7. At the end of each House League season, and in each individual league, a Semi-final and Final will be held to determine the winner of the season's House League. A prize will be awarded to the team who wins the Finals.

8: At the beginning of the next season, the teams will be seeded based on the finishing order of the previous season and not on the Finals. The team that finishes in first place may be moved to the bottom of the next higher House League. the team that finishes in last place may be moved to the next lower House League. This process is ment to encourage teams to do well and improve their doubles squash ability by having the opportunity to play other teams of higher abilities.

9. Don’t forget to check out the web site at www.pickeringsquash.com for all house league and club information. Any questions can be sent to the Doubles Coodinator at doubles@pickeringsquash.com

See everyone on the courts,

Doubles Coordinator
