Squash Alberta Rankings - Top 20 Men’s and Top 10 Women’s Ranking Inactivity Policy
The objective of Squash Alberta is to maintain the integrity of the provincial ranking system. The Top 20/10 ranked positions are important due to the qualification criteria of Provincial Team selection. Therefore, it is crucial that the Squash Alberta Top 20/10 ranked players are representative of the current state of squash in Alberta and that our Top 20/10 players are active in league and/or tournament play.
Squash Alberta seeks to promote the participation of our top-level players in sanctioned tournament play in Alberta to increase tournament interest and the participation of up and coming players, and to increase the level of play in and the profile of the Squash Alberta fixture events.
