The venue for the fixture meeting has now changed. The meeting will now take place at Fulwood on Monday 9 August 2021 at 7:30pm. This is due to reduced staff numbers at Abbeydale caused by Covid-19 isolations. Apologies for any convenience that this has caused. Please share this message amongst the S&D community.
Now that restrictions have been lifted, unless there are new changes on the horizon, the 2021/22 season will go ahead.
We have a complete list of entries from Club Reps. Unfortunately there have been some withdrawals. Sadly Brampton and Queens Park do not have venues. We wish them luck finding somewhere to play squash in the near future.
The fixtures meeting will be held at Abbeydale Squash Club on 9 August 2021 at 7:30pm. Please ensure that all captains attend this meeting. One person covering multiples teams lengthens the meeting for everyone and is not acceptable.
The league structure will remain the same as the unplayed 2020/21 season with the exception of Brampton have withdrawn from Division 1; Brampton 2 from Division 2; Queens Park from Division 3; Phoenix 3, Woodfield 5 and Woodfield 6 from Division 4; Hallamshire 2 Ladies from the Ladies Division. Hallamshire have entered an additional team in the Racketball league.
Proposed fixtures will be posted on the website shortly.
The committee announced previously that it hoped to commence the 2020-21 season from October 1st. However, given the recent tightening of social interaction imposed by the government, this date is no longer achievable. The committee will review the situation should the rules be relaxed. The government has suggested that the new restrictions may last as long as six months, which suggests no matches would take place at all within the normal season. The committee is, however, optimistic, but even then it cannot foresee that any matches can be played this side of Christmas. The league must also follow guidance from England Squash. Fixtures can only sensibly resume once England Squash announce that they have entered Phase 3 of their Return to Play plan. The plan is currently in Phase 2. See the link below for the full plan and to check the current status.
