POLICIES

REFUND POLICY
Requests for refunds of entry fees will be handled by Squash Canada upon receipt of written notice.  Refund requests will be treated in accordance with the following regulations:
 
  1. Withdrawals prior and up to the entry deadline date will receive a full refund less a $5 processing fee.
  2. Withdrawals from singles Championships after the entry deadline date until seedings are first published will receive a 50% refund.
  3. Withdrawals from Doubles Championships after the entry deadline date until start times are first published will receive a 50% refund.
  4. No refund will be given after the final seedings or draws are posted, except for medical reasons or bereavement. In these cases, medical notes or other documentation (e.g. doctor’s note, death notice, etc.) must be provided within 48 hours of the withdrawal for a refund to be considered. In these cases, when approved, a full refund less a $20 processing fee, will be issued. 
 
ATHLETE ELIGIBILITY POLICY
All competitors must be a member in good standing with their respective Provincial/Territorial Squash Association and Squash Canada, or the National Association of their residence, where a competitor is subject to a sanction imposed by the Host Club, Squash Canada shall respect that sanction, including any sanction which may preclude the person from entering the premises and thus participating in the Championships provided the sanction was imposed using fair procedures. Specifically, the sanctioned person must have been informed by the Host Club of the nature of the infraction and have been given the opportunity to provide information concerning the incident prior to the sanction being imposed.  
 
All competitors in Master’s events must have reached the age of the category that they have entered by the first day of the Championships.
 

WITHDRAWALS AND SUBSTITUTIONS FROM DOUBLES CHAMPIONSHIPS
The following guidelines will be used in the case of the withdrawal of a seeded team: 
  1. 24 hours or more prior to the commencement of the first match of the draw concerned, all seeded and placed teams are moved up to the next seeded or placed position as appropriate.  At the discretion of the Host Committee this may include maintaining the original first round match-up or the entire quarter of the draw to maintain the original schedule as the objective is to minimize the disruption to the draw and playing times.  In the case of a draw with 2 seeds and 2 placed teams, the first placed team may be treated as a seeded team if deemed appropriate by the Host Committee. No changes to the seeding placement will be made within 24 hours of the first scheduled match of the draw concerned.
     
  2. The replacement player may not improve the seeding or placing of the original pair or create an additional Dark Horse team.  If the replacement player causes the team to be seeded in a lower position the new team will take its proper place in the seeding order.
     
  3. 1 hour or more prior to the commencement of a first round match, if one member of a doubles pair withdraws the remaining player may find an eligible replacement player approved by the Host Committee so long as the replacement player does not constitute a substantive change to the original draw. Ideally the replacement player would be of the same or lesser skill level of the withdrawing partner.

EYEGUARD POLICY
Eyeguards are mandatory for all participants. Please consult Squash Canada's Eyeguard Policy for the list of approved models.
 

DRESS CODE
All white attire is required at the Granite Club and Toronto Lawn Tennis Club including warm-up.  Other venues require teams to wear matching coloured attire throughout the entire match.
