Competition rules

In principle, the rules of the World Squash Federation (WSF) apply. Each match consists of the best of 3 games to 11 points (point-a-rally). The interval between sets is 90 seconds. The teams are requested to report to the tournament director 30 minutes before their first match is to begin. The squash balls will be provided by the organiser (Dunlop Pro – Double yellow dot). Please note that only non-marking indoor shoes are permitted. The team line-up must be made 30 minutes before the start of the respective match and according to actual playing ability. Order of matches for the respective encounters: 1, 2 and 3.

 

Scoring

The scoring within the group follows the points system (win 2 points; loss 0 points). If two or more teams have the same number of points, the deciding factors are first the encounter, then the game, set and point ratio.
