Team Event + 28 Sep Weekly Wednesday Squash SMASH Tourney - 6:30pm

In addition to our Weekly Wednesday Squash SMASH Tourney announcement, I am excited to announce a new event!
The Quick and The Dirty
2:00 - 3:00pm Saturday, Oct 15

A free, fast and fun team event that requires a bit of strategy, teamwork, and pressure for the individual and the team. In a nutshell - 10 players needed for about an hour: Anjo G. (5.0) and Jeff D. (3.0) have volunteered to be team captains. This is a test concept of something bigger; think multiple teams from many squash clubs. So if you don't find yourself on a team but wanted to play - don't sweat it. If you want to play, sign up here. Or contact Anjo, Jeff, or myself.

Winners - Box of balls.
Losers - Can of Foster's that sat in the sun during the event.

There is no entry fee: just a chance to win... or lose.

  • 5 players. Team is Captain + 4 others. Anyone can play, including the captain.
  • All skill levels welcome. Games are played using the EvenSquash handicap system.
  • One Court. Only one court is used during this event.
  • Racket spin. Team captain winning the spin can decide to post a player first or receive.
  • Player's Coach. Player selects before the start who they want to coach them during the match.
  • Time-outs. Players have two 60 sec time-outs that can be called by either the player or their coach at anytime between points.
  • Best of 5. Matches are played best of 5 games.
  • Alternate post and receive. After the first match, teams alternate posting the next player for the next match.
  • 3 matches. This means that two players will not play in the event.
  • 11.0 max handicap. The three fielded players' handicaps must add up to 11.0 or less.
  • Most games won wins. Normally, the winning team would be who won the 2 of 3 matches but for this event and to increase the chances of full 3 matches being played, games will count.

And of course there is our
