Northumbria Squash Summer Leagues 2015 – Bulletin 1

Let the games begin…

The teams have been entered, the fixtures have been generated, the players are eagerly awaiting the first games so here is your starter for 8.

As there are now 9 teams in each league and that would have been 16 games to be played and then the finals weekend. That is a lot of competition between now and September, so to simplify things (and give yourselves some down time between the Summer & Winter leagues) the new format is 8 games only, 4 away and 4 at home. The fixture generator has used a random generator to decide home and away fixtures adding an element of fairness along the way. It is hoped that you can see the logic behind this and after all it is the summer and holidays do happen. There will still be a finals weekend were the top two teams from each division play-off to decide the 2015 winners of the Summer Leagues. A list of captains, playing nights, start times and contact details is provided under the Squash Leagues menu.

Most importantly a breakdown of the scoring for 4 person teams is also there.
