4. Review of the season

  • All agreed it was good to be back playing team squash and enjoying the social aspect of the league.
  • The majority of teams had enough players in their squad to play regularly and those who struggled utilized bank players to ensure they were able to field a full team of 4. 
  • However, not all bank players were contacted and it was felt that the list of available players needs to be more visible.
  • It was also suggested the rules are reviewed for bank players to ensure the system is fair and teams are not given an advantage by playing a bank player.
  • Inputting of scores was discussed and it was agreed that each team must appoint a captain for every fixture (if the team captain isn’t playing) to be in charge of collecting scores and either inputting into the website or passing onto the official captain to do so. 
  • Given the lack of league income it was agreed that the junior subsidy is removed from forthcoming seasons and the joining fee for teams is reinstated for the forthcoming season.
  • Many players, particularly the new players were unsure of league rules around players, matches etc. It was agreed that once reviewed the rules will be shared widely, along with a shorter condensed version of rules that teams can have to hand on match nights.

5. League Structure 2022/23

  • All teams are prepared to commit to the new season and were happy to make a payment of £30 for each team entered.
  • Season to begin October.
  • Teams to complete registration by end of August.
  • Karen P will lead a recruitment drive to encourage more teams to join the league next year. She plans to email and call Leicestershire clubs to ask if they would like to be involved (e.g. Loughborough Students).
