We are pleased to announce NSA Summer Squash
Ladder 2018 (SSL) starting July 2nd and expected to be concluded
by the end of August 2018.
With main goal to provide activities during the summer, we encourage
friendly competition amongst all NSA members and/or friends of
the sport, seniors and juniors.
What is it?
The SSL 2018
is essentially a ranking system of all the participating members
and friends of the sport. It is separated from any other internal
events, so even if you don’t want to commit to these events
you can still participate in the ladder and vice versa.
How does it work?
The SSL 2018 lists squash members
according to the latest regional ranking, which for this case
we take in to consideration the final ranking of the NSA
Squash League 2017-2018/R4 and the results of the NSA
Summer Squash Tournament 2017-2018. Players may move up the
ladder by challenging and beating those listed above them. If
you successfully challenge another member (i.e. you win), then
you move up to your opponents’ position on the ladder, and
your opponent will fall by one place. If you are unsuccessful
(you lose), then both players stay in the same places as before.
Who can I challenge?
Players already on the ladder
can only challenge others who are up to 5 places above them, and
therefore can be challenged by players up to 5 places below them.
New entrants may challenge
any available (not challenged) player they like and in case of
a win then the new entrant will enter the Ladder by next update.
In different case, the new entrant may challenge other players
in lower positions.
How can I challenge a player?
A player may challenge an opponent
either by sending a direct email to him and copying Nicosia Squash
Association, or by sending a text message to player and NSA (99663970)
as well. Upon NSA’s acknowledgement the challenge is then
considered to be valid!
How long do I have to arrange and play my game?
A challenge must be played and
results to be reported not later than the following Saturday of
a challenge. Players may challenge more frequently if their schedule
allows them to do so!
When can I play my match?
Players can make their own
arrangements and book a court through our Online Booking Service,
according to NSA court regulations and report their result by
If the person challenged fails
to make the match within the week then it's considered a loss.
How to reserve a court and post a score through internet?

through internet you need to have access to our Online
Court Booking Service.
