Sure your Matrix or SportyHQ ranking tells ONE story, but surely you’ll agree that it’s a one-dimensional perspective.
The folks at US Squash have created quite a simple system to ‘rank/rate’ players independently of a scoring system.
We’re looking at converting this into an equivalency table for our local ranking systems (Matrix & Sporty HQ).
In the meantime, you can have a look at some of the elements and get a sense of where you rate yourself.
We use these to guide our elite and high performance players. We push their limits in Short High Intensity Interval Training (SHIIT) Sessions They can test what they learn in our Play To Win ‘round-robin’ style sessions and of course they take private lessons and private group lessons to improve faster.
Often, there is ONE THING that is holding you back - we work with players to eliminate THAT ONE THING so they can move onward and upward to the next one. That usually means they will start to beat their equally ranked friends, which is quite gratifying, especially if you’ve been playing them for a while and now you can get on top of them - and stay there!
Whatever your skill level, age or ambition - squash is a very technical game with never-ending challenges and rewards when you ascend to the ‘next level’ of performance!
