The internal squash ladder has been running since September 2018 and it’s great to see that so many club members have supported this new initiative and taken part in some closely contested matches.
For those who are unfamiliar with the squash ladder format, we have an important rule which stipulates you can only challenge up to six players above you in the ladder, e.g. Player #30 can only challenge up to Player #24 – but no higher.
However, as we’re entering the festive month of December, as a Christmas bonus to our playing community, we have decided to waiver this ‘Six-Up Rule’ throughout December, meaning that from Saturday 1st Dec, players can challenge anyone in the ladder, irrespective of their current ranking status.
For example, if you are currently ranked #40 in the ladder and you’ve always wanted to have a crack at a player from the Top Ten, then this is your chance to do so. If you’re ranked mid-table and want to challenge our current Club #1 (Keith Hansell), then now you can do so.
All the normal ladder rules will remain exactly the same, with the exception of the ‘Six Up’ stipulation. So, from next month, this is your opportunity to climb the ladder swiftly and establish your new ranking.
The ‘Six Up’ rule will return from Tuesday 1st Jan 2019.
