CATEGORIES OF PLAY:

  • Open, B categories
  • Age categories 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+, 60+, 65+

    ** International players are welcome


DRAW FORMAT:

All categories of play will use a single elimination main draw format. Consolation draws should accommodate all teams losing prior to Saturday or use a feed-in format including all losing teams including the quarter-finalists.

All categories require 6 teams to be a recognized Canadian Championship. In the case of a category with insufficient entries those teams will be entered in the next lower age category. Draws with 4 teams or less may be a round robin format at the discretion of the tournament chair.

In exceptional circumstances, due to geography and the strength of the entries, at the discretion of the Tournament Committee and with the agreement of the SC Doubles Committee chair, a category with insufficient entries may be played and recognized as a Canadian Championship.  If 60+ or older divisions are offered, categories should be held despite having 3 to 6 teams. In the case of 3 teams a round robin draw format shall be used and in the case of 4 or 5 teams a single elimination draw with consolation for third place shall be used. See Appendix J for the Squash Canada Tie Breaking Policy in the case of a tie in a 3 team round robin.

Playoffs for 3rd and 4th will be scheduled in all categories where feasible (where courts permit). 


SCHEDULING OF MATCHES:

The Host Committee will use the following guidelines when scheduling matches in the Canadian Mixed Doubles Championships:

A. Out-of-town Teams
• Wherever possible consideration will be given to travel time/time zone changes, endeavoring to schedule the same section of the draws at approximately the same time.

B. Allocated Time per Match:
• Prior to quarter-finals – alternate 45 minutes and 60 minutes;
• Quarter-finals – 60 minutes;
• Semi-finals and Finals – 75 minutes

C. Rest Time
• A minimum of 12 hours must be allowed between the start time of a team's last match of one day and their first match the next day.
• Teams should not have more than two matches per day.
• In the main round (and where possible in consolation) when playing more than one match on the same day, the following timelines should be observed: 
    o No less than 4 hours between the start time of one match and the commencement of the next in any draw; 
    o The semi-final match and final match in the main draw should not be played on the same day (if required due to draw size, a minimum of 6 hours between should be allowed).

In these cases, medical notes or other documentation (e.g. doctor’s note, death notice, etc.) must be provided within 48 hours of the withdrawal for a refund to be considered.

ATHLETE ELIGIBILITY
All competitors in the Canadian Mixed Doubles Championships must be members in good standing of their respective Provincial/Territorial Squash Association and Squash Canada, or the National Association of their residence.  NOTE: International players are welcome!
 
Notwithstanding a competitor may be a member in good standing with their respective Provincial/Territorial Squash Association and Squash Canada, or the National Association of their residence, where a competitor is subject to a sanction imposed by the Host Club, Squash Canada shall respect that sanction, including any sanction which may preclude the person from entering the premises and thus participating in the Championships, provided the sanction was imposed using fair procedures. Specifically, the sanctioned person must have been informed by the Host Club of the nature of the infraction and have been given an opportunity to provide information concerning the incident prior to the sanction being imposed.
 
All competitors in Master’s events must have reached the age of the category that they have entered by the first day of the Championships.
 

WITHDRAWALS AND SUBSTITUTIONS FROM DOUBLES CHAMPIONSHIPS
The following guidelines will be used in the case of the withdrawal of a seeded team:
  1. 24 hours or more prior to the commencement of the first match of the draw concerned, all seeded and placed teams are moved up to the next seeded or placed position as appropriate. At the discretion of the Host Committee this may include maintaining the original first round match-up or the entire quarter of the draw to maintain the original schedule as the objective is to minimize the disruption to the draw and playing times. In the case of a draw with 2 seeds and 2 placed teams, the first placed team may be treated as a seeded team if deemed appropriate by the Host Committee. No changes to the seeding placement will be made within 24 hours of the first scheduled match of the draw concerned.
  2. The replacement player may not improve the seeding or placing of the original pair or create an additional Dark Horse team. If the replacement player causes the team to be seeded in a lower position the new team will take its proper place in the seeding order.
  3. 1 hour or more prior to the commencement of a first round match, if one member of a doubles pair withdraws the remaining player may find an eligible replacement player approved by the Host Committee so long as the replacement player does not constitute a substantive change to the original draw. Ideally the replacement player would be of the same or lesser skill level of the remaining partner.

Tie Breaking Procedure for Round Robin Draws 

All competitors (whether in team or individual competition) play one another in a pool to establish an order of merit.  The final order is decided, taking account of all results in that pool (e.g.  Each match in an individual event, or encounter in a team event, is recorded as a win or a loss, with a win worth one point), as follows:

  • If two competitors are tied, the winner will be determined by the head-to-head result between the two competitors.

  • If three (or more) competitors are tied, the winner will be determined by the head-to-head results among the tied competitors:

First by the greater number of matches won against the tied competitors;
If equal, by the greater number of games won against the tied competitors;
If equal, by the greater positive difference between the games won and lost among the tied competitors;
If equal, by the greater positive difference between the points won and lost among the tied competitors.

If any of the above criteria result in a tie between two competitors, then revert to the procedure for two competitors tied (head-to-head result between the two competitors).
