Rankings update | 26 October

Feedback

Since the launch of the new England Squash rankings, powered by Squash Levels, we have been listening to feedback from the squash community and are introducing some changes to further improve the rankings system, particularly for junior players. These changes will take effect on 1 November 2022.

We are also developing a new points-based ranking system for England Squash sanctioned junior competitions and are looking to launch an initial phase later in November. Keep an eye on our communication channels for more details, which will be shared in the coming weeks ahead of the launch.

What is changing:

  • Friendly matches will no longer count towards rankings if one or both players are juniors
  • The weighting for box matches if one or both players are juniors is being reduced from 50% to 25%
  • The number of sanctioned competitions juniors need to play to appear in the rankings is being increased from 1 to 3

Why are we making these changes?

We have carefully considered all the feedback we have received over the last few weeks and believe that these changes address some of the main themes identified, particularly in relation to which matches impact the rankings for junior players.

By removing friendly matches and reducing the weighting of box matches concerns around people being able to ‘work the system’ to their own benefit are addressed and the pressure is taken off junior players who wish to play friendly matches or box leagues for fun only, without their ranking being impacted. By increasing the number of sanctioned competitions need to play to be ranked, we hope junior players will be encouraged to participate in sanctioned competitions.

Ranking Errors

Please be aware that we will only accept and amend ranking errors which are submitted via the online rankings query form below.

Submission of errors made within 48 hours of the rankings update will be dealt with as soon as possible. Please note that errors submitted outside of the 48 hour window may experience a delay in being corrected in the ranking list.

Seeding Requests

Satellite and Challenger Competitions

  • For Satellite and Challenger competitions, England Squash will seed appropriately from the Junior National Ranking system.
  • All seeding related questions must be directed towards the tournament organiser. We will not accept submission of any Satellite and Challenger seeding requests. If there is an error with you ranking please report it via the rankings queries form.
Silver, Gold and Diamond Events:
  • For Silver, Gold and Diamond events a seeding panel will manually seed each age event.*
  • The seeding panel will be chaired by Tim Vail, supported by other nominated coaches of suitable expertise and knowledge. Nominated coaches may change from event to event, whilst Tim Vail will remain a constant on the panel.
  • When draws are created the 1 & 2 seeded players are placed at the top and bottom of the draw, the rest of the draw placed as follows:
    • 3-4 seeds are drawn and placed randomly
    • 5-8 seeds are drawn and placed randomly
    • 9-12 seeds are drawn and placed randomly
    • 13-16 seeds are drawn and placed randomly
    • 17-24 seeds are drawn and placed randomly
    • 25-32 seeds are drawn and placed randomly

*Due to ongoing changes in the junior ranking system the seeding panel will be responsible for seeding entire draws until the junior ranking system is fully operational.

England Squash teams up with SquashLevels

England Squash has partnered with SquashLevels to manage England Squash junior rankings, as well as the England Squash senior rankings - brand new for this season. The new England Squash SquashLevels rankings is comprehensive and will list all English players at any playing level whilst focusing on the top 100 players nationally which can be filtered by age and gender.

The previous Club Locker rankings were tournament based where a player would accumulate points based on their final position in each sanctioned event and the number of tournaments entered. Tournaments were weighted so you would get more points for the higher ranked events and the overall rankings would be based on your best four tournaments over the previous 12 months.

Levels is a simpler concept as it just measures your current playing level based on your results and the level of your opponents. If you play better than expected you will go up, if worse then expected you go down. It's a version of the Matrix system but is much more accurate as it takes points and behavioural modeling into account.

Get added to the rankings

Can't find your name? With our new exciting partnership with SquashLevels as long as you have played at least one England Squash sanctioned competition in the last twelve months you should automatically in the rankings. If you feel you are not please report it via the rankings queries form.



How the rankings system works

In order to appear in the junior rankings, you must have been within the age group at the time (note, for instance, that U15s will be included in the U17s and U19s rankings) and have played at least one sanctioned event in the previous 12 months.

Historic junior rankings go back to November 2017.
