coming. The lineup of matches is then sent out on the Sunday evening
so people are aware on Monday morning of whom and when
they play. Matches start as early as 5pm, so please indicate if you
have any time restrictions.

WWC Squash Box League
The WWC Squash Box League is new this year at the club. In our box
league, players of all levels sign up with our Pro, who arranges players
into groups of approx 4 players. Each player will have approx 5-6
weeks depending on tournaments to complete all the matches within
their group. Groups will then be re-arranged by the pro again largely
based on results and new players coming and going from the league.
Players can join the league at any time, but depending where we
are in the cycle, may have to wait a couple weeks to get started. All
matches are best of 5 games and scores must either be reported to
the pro or written in, in the box leagues posted in the lounge.
