Please do not send results to the grading list unless they are 100% correct. (Issues can be harder to resolve once they have been sent through to the grading list) Please use the new score card – Online Interclub Result Card Competition Format and Start Time Both teams should be at the host club by 6.45pm and able to commence the first match by 7pm. If a team is not at the host venue and able to commence the first match by 7:15pm they may be defaulted by their opponents. The interclub subcommittee will uphold such defaults unless conditions outside the control of a team (i.e. bad weather, traffic accident, etc) prevented them from getting to the venue on time. Extra allowance should also be given to teams travelling long distances (i.e.: to/from the Wairarapa. If a team expects to be late they should make every effort to notify the opposing team captain by phoning the host Club. The visiting team will select the playing order for the tie. Each pair of opposing players will jointly mark or referee one match. The choice of marking or refereeing should be by mutual agreement of the two players or decided by the toss of a coin. Players may have a 5 minute warm up before their match. During this period please ensure the warm up is fair with no more than 2 or 3 shots to yourself before making an easily playable shot to your opponent. Referees must time this warm up period and announce ‘half time’ after 2.5 minutes. Squash Wellington Scoring Format is PAR – ‘Point a Rally’ PAR to 15 – win by 2 Choice of Ball Policy Balls An update to the choice of ball policy following the introduction of the Combined Grading List. All squash players should be aware of the following update to Squash New Zealand’s choice of ball policy:

        • B2 (and above) graded players shall use a double yellow dot Dunlop squash ball.  C1 (and below) players shall use a single yellow dot Dunlop squash ball.
        • Where a B2 graded (or higher) player and a C1 (or lower) graded player meet in competition play (including where a man plays a woman), the player with the highest grading points shall have the choice of which ball is used.

What has changed?  The policy has been slightly reworded to give the player with the higher grading points (rather than grade) the choice of ball where a B2 (or higher) plays a C1 (or lower).  This reflects the fact that men and women are now able to play each other without the woman needing a men’s grading code.
