This week’s update includes:
Friday the 3rd March the 2016 Nexia New Zealand Canterbury Sports Awards took place at Wigram Air Force Museum. The Awards are the region's iconic celebration of sporting achievement, recognising coaches, officials, athletes and administrators. Squash had a great representation with four nominees and a finalist; Paul Coll, who lost out to Kieran Read. Well done to all our nominees and Paul.
Junior Scoring – Change in Scoring
At the 2016 Squash NZ forum, it was agreed by all regions that ALL Junior events will use point a rally scoring (PAR) to eleven for the 2017 season with a review to take place at the end of the year. This includes all club sanctioned tournaments and interclub events.
Please note: that scoring for all senior and masters events is PAR eleven for higher graded players (roughly B1 and above) and to fifteen for players roughly graded B2 and below. Where a junior competes in a senior event this ruling will take effect. The Scoring system used should be the same for every player in a tournament grade / division.
Squash Canterbury have decided to implement from 30th April, to coincide with the first D Grade tournament of the year and prior to the start of the CHCH Autumn Junior Interclub commencing.
The board are looking for expressions of interest for the following roles;
Squash Canterbury Board member Lawrence Skurr, who is responsible for ‘success on the court’, said ‘he is indebted to those that volunteered last year and did a superb job and again hope they also reapply but there is always a need for some ‘new blood’ with new ideas/passion’
If you have any questions or would like to find out more, Lawrence would love to hear from you. You can contact him either by email email@example.com or ring him on 0274817926
Expressions of interested to be submitted to Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 17th March.
