Canadian Rankings Policy regarding Withdrawals and Defaults
 
DEFAULTS  
Any player who defaults from a match or fails to show up for a match once tournament play has begun, will lose points to their opponent.  The player who defaults from a match or fails to show for a match will automatically lose 12 points in the rankings.  Their opponent will gain 12 points for the default or no show.  A player who defaults multiple times in the same event will receive 12-point deduction for every match defaulted in the event. 
 
NOTE: A player may appeal their default by submitting a doctor’s note to Squash Canada (by either Fax or via scanned email) by no later than 7 days after the conclusion of the event. Only at the discretion of Squash Canada can a defaulted player have their 12 points reinstated.
 
 
WITHDRAWALS
Any player who must withdraw from a tournament (with a legitimate reason) after the draw has been made will not lose points in the ranking system or will have points credited back provided he/she provides proper documentation to Squash Canada.  If a player withdraws due to injury he/she must provide a doctor’s note to Squash Canada (see above). 
 
Squash Canada considers a legitimate reason for withdrawing from a match/ event to be one of the following only:  family emergency, illness, injury or accident.  Squash Canada will not credit a players lost points for any other reason.  It is the player’s responsibility to inform Squash Canada as to the reason why they are requesting a credit for any points lost.  It will be Squash Canada’s decision to credit points back to the player or not.  A player must notify Squash Canada in writing within 7 days after the conclusion of the event.
