As some of you know, there was an issue with participation in Women’s Div 1 this season. In response to this, we are proposing a format change for Div 1 to try to make playing a bit easier for everyone and provide fun, competitive matches for all players.

We would like to do a trial run of this new format this spring. It would be on Tuesdays starting April 28 and end June 16.

Each week, all teams will play at the same host club on a rotating basis.. The clubs participating are Vancouver Racquets Club, Van Lawn, Jericho and Evergreen (to be confirmed).

The goal is to make it fun: come out for a good run, cheer on your team mates, and win prizes! There will be a draw for “door prizes” every league night and all players will be entered to win a gift basket on June 16.

************************************************
What is the new format?

As a general guideline, players should have a minimum of 1000 points. However, some players (such as juniors) may not have points that reflect their skill level, so the squash pro at your club can advise you on this.

We will pool players that have signed up. You can sign up choosing to play a) full-time; b) part-time or c) spare. Spares will be available to all teams.

As much as possible players will be kept with their respective clubs but the priority is to have balanced teams so that all players have competitive matches.

The team line-up will be 4 players. We hope to have at least 4 teams.

2 to 3 women from the Div 1 pool will act as Division coordinators.

Meals, snacks and beverages afterwards are optional but will be paid for out-of-pocket by individual players.

**************************************************
What do you need to do?

Sign up!! Get your club mates to sign up!!

It’s easy. Just send an email to vsldiv1women@gmail.com. We’ll do the rest!

This is a trial for the 2015/16 season. If we get positive feedback we will move forward with this change. If there is a lack of response there may be an assumption that there is a lack of interest in women’s Div 1 period.

If you would like to participate in this format for Div 1 during the 2015/16 season but are unable to participate in the trial, please send us a note to let us know!

If you know of anyone who might be interested in this trial league that isn’t currently playing in the VSL please PASS THIS EMAIL ON!
