Club Matches – Challenge Matches

The IOMSRA Official Rankings can be seen by going to the IOMSRA Website – Then select ‘Squash Levels’ and the IOM Rankings will appear on your screen.

Your ranking will affect the position you play for your team next season so your ranking or playing level is important. If you want to improve your playing level and ranking then why not challenge another player and send me the result and I will input it into the system. A good result will mean an improvement in playing level, similarly a bad result will mean a reduction in playing level. 

Some of you already play ‘Club matches’ (Challenge matches) and the results have impacted your playing level. See the graphic below for an example of 2 matches played recently which shows the result and the playing level PerCentage change. 

‘Squash Levels’ is basically a database that holds loads of results from Squash Matches. It uses these results to grade players and give them a playing ‘Level’. As the database holds so much data it knows what the result of match between 2 players should be by looking at the history of matches between players with similar playing levels. So therefore when a result is entered adjustments can be made to a players playing level in light of the match result.
