The following programs and teams may receive funding when they are budgeted for in Squash BC’s annual budget and if there is an interest in the section.

Subsidies to the nationals for the champions in the Squash BC Closed, or the runner-ups if the champions chose not to go will go to the following events.

  • Men’s and Women’s Open, Men’s 40, 50, and 60 plus. The subsidy will be up to $500.00 each or expenses to nationals.
  • Champions must reply Yes or No within 8 days of the end of the Squash BC Closed as to if they are attending the nationals. If no, then the runner-up will then be contacted.
  • Subsidies may not be moved to other individuals or events.
  • Upon receiving proof of entry to the national championship, travel ticket preferred, Squash BC will process the subsidy.
  • If an athlete has won a Canadian title the previous year and is returning to the same Canadian Championship to defend the title, $500 or expenses will be allocated to the member.
  • The Canadian Masters Team Championships are to be held on the second weekend of January of each year.
  • Each team will consist of 4 men and 3 women. The men will have a 40+, 45+, 50+ & 55+ and the Women have a 40+, 45+ & 50+. (Teams may have 2 men 45+ but not 2 40+)
  • Selection will be based on the following:
    • The teams will be chosen primarily by Squash BC rankings
    • However if players are within 25 points, head to head results over the past 12 months may be taken into account.
    • More recent results are more important than earlier results so results from this season are more important.
    • If it’s still close then a playoff will be scheduled.
  • Team order will use the same criteria as team selection.
  • The team will be selected on or near Dec. 1st.
  • Selected team members will be expected to purchase their tickets to the event within two weeks of being notified they are on the team.
  • The selection committee will consist of the Squash BC Executive Director, VP of Player Development and two Squash BC Player Representatives.
  • Squash BC will pay the team entry fees and subsidize players $200.00 per player.
  • Unless a sponsor or funding agency is acquired, all other costs must be the responsibility of the players who wish to go. If a sponsor or funding agency is acquired, all players will be subsidized equally.
  • Players must register by Nov. 15 by notifying the Executive Director of Squash BC
  • The Canadian Men’s and Women’s Teams will be held on the first weekend in January after New Years.
  • The BC Men’s and Women’s teams will consist of the best 3 players of each gender we can field. An alternate will also be chosen for the teams should any player become injured or unable to play before the events.
  • Selection will be based on the following:
    • The teams will be chosen primarily by Squash BC rankings
    • More recent results are more important than earlier results so results from this season are more important.

  • All players expected to be considered for either team should plan on participating in at least one AAA tournament between Sept. and Dec. and have competed against players of their own caliber. Consistent league play may also be used. The main consideration is that you are shown to be healthy and active against your own level.
