The start is early May and we complete by late October.

A representative from the NSW Squash Referees committee will conduct an evening rules session to assist all players in the interpretation of squash rules. This is usually held in the week prior to the commencement of competition.

The cost for each team is approx. $680, with $35 for a box of a dozen squash balls. One team must supply a new ball on the night.

Squash courts provided by companies have a reduction in their company team fees. Any commercial courts used are fully paid by the Association.

Teams require 4 players each week on a weekday from 5.30 to 8pm (3 only for A Grade), and no restriction on the total number for each team, however players must have played 4 matches to qualify for semi-finals and finals. Number of rounds can range from 12 to 16. Teams in these divisions can be mixed or of one gender.
