Cleveland Squash Ladder
What is it?
The ladder is essentially an ongoing ranking system of all the adult squash players in the Cleveland area.
How does it work?
The ladder lists squash members in ability order and players move up the ladder by challenging and beating those listed above them. If you challenge another player and win, then you move up to your opponents’ position on the ladder, and your opponent will fall by one place. If you are unsuccessful, then both players stay in the same places as before.
Who can I challenge?
Players can only challenge others who are up to 5 places above them or be challenged by players up to 5 places below them. Players must wait at least 7 days before challenging the same opponent. Challenge only one player at a time. Email addresses will not be listed publicly on the website, however we will circulate a document with everyone's contact info and club affiliation periodically.
When and where do challenges take place?
You can organize a match at any time that is convenient for you and your opponent. The understanding is that the match will take place on the court of the challenged player, although separate arrangements can be made. Normal guest privileges at your club apply.
What is the match format?
Point a rally scoring to 11, best of 5 games. You do not need to record the scores of each game but will need to record the overall score (3-0, 3-1, 3-2).
What happens next?
After playing a ladder match, simply fill out the form at the bottom of this page to let us know the results and we’ll update the ladder to reflect the new standings.
What if I'm injured, out of town, busy or want to be taken off the ladder?
Send us an email and we'll adjust the ladder. If you're injured or temporarily unavailable for matches, we can keep you on the ladder but note your status so that you keep your place but are not contacted for matches.
