Our season starts tomorrow and there still seems to be confusion about which division is playing with which official scoring system. Below is a quick and official reminder of the official scoring systems that will be in place for the 2009/2010 VSL season:
Division One OPEN - PAR 11
Division One WOMEN - PAR 15
Divisions 2 through 8 OPEN and WOMEN - Hand In, Hand Out to 9.
Please note that the above scoring systems will be in effect throughout the season and can only be discussed, changed or debated at the next AGM (date TBD). We hope that you attend the next AGM to voice your opinion and vote on the direction that the league takes in future seasons.
Have a great season!
During the VSL’s AGM a motion was put forward to have the VSL maintain the existing scoring system of HiHo, or “Hand-In-Hand-Out” scoring to 9, for all divisions. This motion was voted on by the membership and passed unanimously. Therefore Divisions 2 through 8 will continue with HiHo for the 2009/2010 season.
Following the vote, an amendment was forwarded to have the VSL survey Division 1 players, those who played in that division last year and the two new teams moving up, on whether they wish to continue with HiHo scoring or switch to PAR 11. Results of this survey will be posted online by July 15, 2009.
It should be noted that while the World Squash Federation has chosen PAR 11 as the new “standard scoring method” the governing body still recognizes both HiHo and PAR to 15 as approved scoring systems.
