Level based ratings: Following the implementation of the new junior rankings and a positive settling in period, it has been agreed with SquashLevels to removed the reduction on the weightings for box matches and friendly matches for junior players. Box matches now apply 50% and friendles are no longer discounted. This change will apply to all level calculations going back to the earliest junior matches. This applies to all matches all matches using Squashlevels.

The new points-based rankings system for junior players competing in England Squash sanctioned competitions is now live. The new rankings, powered by SquashLevels, automatically use finishing position data from Sport Manager, and will be updated and shared monthly. Rankings will be calculated using a points system that has been developed with feedback and input from parents, players and coaches. Read full story.

- have a valid England Squash membership

How points are calculated
Rankings points can be gained by competing in any of the following England Squash Sanctioned competitions.
- Platinum (English Junior Championships, British Junior Championships and British Junior Open)
- Bronze (previously Challenger)
- Copper (previously Satellite)
Note: Points ranking for British Junior Open results will only apply for English players.
Once a player has completed an event and has an official finishing position they will automatically be given the corresponding ranking points for that level of competition. You can view the points tables below.
Rankings are based on:
- An average of a player's best 6 results (or 5 results for Under 19s).
- Results in the last 12 months (n.b - at the start of the season this will include results from the previous season)
- If a player plays up an age group, then points will only be allocated for the age group they play in. If a player plays up more than one age group no points will be allocated.
- When a player moves up an age group 50% of their previous points will be carried forward. This change will be reflected in the first ranking update following the player's birthday.

What we use rankings for
Satellite and Challenger Competitions
- For Satellite and Challenger competitions, England Squash will use the National Junior Rankings to do all seedings.
- All questions relating to seedings for satellite and challenger events must be directed to the tournament organiser.
- If you believe there is an error with a ranking please report it via email to email@example.com.
Silver, Gold and Platinum Competitions
- For Silver, Gold and Platinum competitions a seedings panel will meet to determine the seeds for each age group. The seeding panel will manually seed the top 8 seeds per age group. This will be based on ranking, finishing positions in recent major events, recent results and head to heads. The remainder of the seedings will revert to the latest ES ranking at the time of entry closing.
- The seedings panel will be led by an experienced chair, supported by other coaches with highly relevant expertise and knowledge. The make up of the panel may vary from event to event.
- When draws are created the first and second seeded players will be placed at the top and bottom of the draw respectively. The rest of the seeds are 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
