- By signing up for the ladder you are signing up to play a social squash match on a Thursday night. You will play junior or senior players of your ability level. If you know you are not going to be available to play, make sure you leave the ladder for that week. You can do it online. You need to do this before Saturday evening at 7pm.
- If you can’t make your scheduled game, you need to get in touch with your opponent. Find their contact details online by logging in through ‘book now’ and clicking on ‘directory’.
- No shows will be stood down from the ladder for a TWO (2) week period.
- If you can’t make your scheduled game, your opponent is not obliged to play at another time – they can choose to take the win instead.
- You are responsible for ensuring your match result is recorded on the ladder score sheet. This is kept upstairs by the whiteboard.
- If you win your game, it is squash etiquette that you offer to buy your opponent a drink. Juniors cannot buy alcoholic beverages for senior players.
- You are required to mark/referee a game on the night regardless of your ability level. This will usually be the game directly after you've played (on the court you've come off). Failure to do so may see you stood down for TWO (2) weeks.
The Squash Auckland Code of Conduct applies during all ladder games - a copy of which can be found on the notice board downstairs. Bad behaviour and poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated at our club - any incidence reported to the Ladder Controller or Committee will result in further action being taken, with the alledged incident being investigated and possibly resulting in official warnings, enforced stand-down periods or full expulsion from the ladder - as the committee see fit.
