Online Squash and RacketBall Leagues are Here
The January 2015 leagues will no longer be posted as hard copy on the club noticeboard since we have moved to online leagues where you will enter your match score either via a monitor which has been installed by the kiosk at the club or at your leisure via your own online devices through the link
 

This new league platform is provided by Squashnet providing many benefits such as e.g. 

After each game you and your opponent will be emailed the score entered, if it is subsequently changed a new email will be sent

All scores are saved for prosperity so you can now review all your stats for both you and your opponents.

Ever wondered how you actually did last month?  All final league positions can be reviewed once the month has finished.

You can view all this on the internet so can track progress where ever you are in the world.

Contact details for league players are available in the new system. 

Login
 
To login to this system please select your name and enter your password which has been setup to be the same as the one you use when you go into the squash booking system we use from Payne Automation.
 
 
Please note that the players so far set up in the system are those who played in the December leagues and those who did not but indicated they wished to play in the January leagues - so if you are a league player who hasnt played during these months and wish to resume then write your name on the hard copy opt out-opt in form on the noticeboard at the club or EMAIL me (Ian Fradgley - League Administrator - jeni@92ban.freeserve.co.uk letting me know the month you wish to return to the leagues).
 
 
You can find some instructions on how to use the system in the attachment but  as with any new system there are a few aspects to highlight as we go live.

Scoring 

The current league scoring rules have been configured into software however rather than entering the result including the bonus points you should enter the actual games won for each player.  For example a score 3-2 should be entered 3-2 rather than the current input of 5-3.  The bonus column will now add in all bonus points for matches won, turning up and playing all your games.

An example of how the bonuses are calculated is given in the attachment.

Viewing and entering scores at the Club
Score entry and viewing leagues can be done anywhere with an internet connection but so that you can still see leagues and enter scores whilst at the club we have installed a touch screen kiosk/computer outside court one & two please feel free to use this as an electronic league notice board.
 
At the moment you can log into the leagues and view the public league pages.  The current link to court bookings does not appear to work since installing the computer at the club but new pages can be made available in the future, please feel free to make suggestions as to what you may like to seeContact Details

Contact Details
 
The squash league platform is provided by a different company to the court booking system and therefore unfortunately at this stage you will need to keep your contact details up to date in both systems.  This is easily done but if you want to be emailed the score of each game you play please make sure your email address is up to date on the league system.

Opt In - Opt Out
 As with our previous system players may want to opt out of particular league months either permanently or until some future month when they want to opt back in - we are currently talking to SquashNet about how this can be achieved by individuals online but in the meantime if you wish to opt out please and wish to resume then write your name on the hard copy opt out-opt in form on the noticeboard at the club or EMAIL me (Ian Fradgley - League Administrator - jeni@92ban.freeserve.co.uk letting me know the month you wish to opt out and the month you wish to opt back in).

 New to the Club/New to the leagues If you wish to join the leagues and are eligible then  and wish to resume then write your name on the hard copy opt out-opt in form on the noticeboard at the club or EMAIL me (Ian Fradgley - League Administrator - jeni@92ban.freeserve.co.uk letting me know the month you wish to enter the leagues and a view as to which league would be best for you)
 
Entering Scores

Every league player will be given a log in and your password will be emailed to you shortly.  However you can still view the league positions and stats without logging in by viewing the public pages for which a link is provided for on the main Squashnet login page.  This allows members who do not play leagues to keep up to date with the club leagues..


Racket Ball

SquashNet are just about to setup an additional league framework through which we propose to run the RacketBall leagues.  I hope this will happen in the next few days and will EMAIL out when they are ready but  in the meantime if you wish to start playing your racketball matches then you can find the leagues on the club website and can enter your scores later.
 
 
Future Developments

This is just the start, In the future we can use this platform for tracking our two tournaments, tracking club rankings and starting ladder leagues. 
 
 Finally
many thanks to James Spicer, squash committee member and league player for taking on this project of identifying which off the peg online leagues were best suited to our club and doing the negotiations and setup.
