GPSQC adheres to all the rules as detailed by Squash Canada. You can review these rules at http://squash.ca/en/rules-game
All players must abide by the code of conduct as outlined on their player registration forms and outlined by Squash Alberta.
All GPSQC members are required to purchase a wristband before stepping on the court. Players caught participating in Squash league without a wristband will forfeit their match without exception.
Each player will receive 1 point for each game won. An additional point is awarded to the winner of the match.
When players are finished their match, they are responsible to ref and score keep the match afterwards. The winner will score keep and the loser will ref. Changing of these roles can be switched at the player’s discretion. Players in the second spot in either the 6:00 pm or 8:00pm time slot are responsible to ref and score keep the first match of the evening.
Divisions 7/8 Blue Single Dot Dunlop ball
Divisions 3-6 Yellow Single Dot Dunlop ball

Players are provided with a 3-minute warm up on the court before their match and a 90 second break in between games.
Teams may modify the play order as needed during league night for extenuating circumstances assuming all parties agree to the changes.
Match play should observe the time cap and vacate the court at the end of the time block without requiring notice.
After all matches have concluded, members are welcome to use the remaining time for exhibition play or fun.
In the event that a player cannot attend their match due to injury, sickness or other commitments, the player is responsible to find a substitute player. Any player who must retire due to work commitments, injury or illness must notify the league of their extended absence. No refunds will be provided to players that drop-out after the league starting date. All fees rendered in this situation are considered a donation to the Grande Prairie Squash Club.
A sub list is provided in your league package email. This list is updated often. If you require a new list please contact the email@example.com email. Players who do not find a sub for their match will be hit with a “no show” penalty, the opponent is awarded full match points, and a –1 point penalty to the team total for that night.
Any player who is AT or BELOW your division can sub for you. Substitute players are expected to stay for the ref and score keeping duties afterwards.

Sub players that “no show” one time will be removed from the sub list and no longer be eligible to play in the squash league for the remainder of the season. This is a one strike rule for all sub list players.
A no show is any player who cancels or does not show up for their match at the scheduled time. In the event of a no show, your opponent will receive full match points, you will be hit with a no show penalty, and your team will be deducted –1 points from the night total. If a player receives 2 no show penalties they will automatically be removed from the league team and placed on the sub list. Their position will be listed as SPARE for the remainder of league. These positions will be filled by the squash league on a week to week basis until a replacement is found.
