5  WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP REGULATIONS

There have been a number of amendments, most quite small but all significant, to the WSF World Championship Regulation. The updated version is available at http://www.worldsquash.org/ws/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Championship-Regulations- V6.1.pdf

 

   

6 COMPLETE COURT ACCREDITATION

  

As announced in 2011, new courts built after 1st January 2013 are required to register for Complete Court Accreditation (CCA) in order for them to be eligible for use at international events, such as PSA and WSA tournaments and WSF World Championships. Regional and national federations have been altering their regulations so that they also only play their events on courts that are CCA registered, thus all competition on new courts will take place with a high standard of playing conditions assured.

 

Of course this regulation does not apply to courts that are already built. Once registered, a certificate will be sent to the court operator and the courts are listed in the worldwide directory.

 

Please check that competition courts under construction in your country are CCA registered and, if not, remind operators of the need. This way not only is quality assured, but we also avoid embarrassment and difficulty if events are arranged at new facilities where the courts are not registered.

 

Already completed courts can be registered too, and for all registrations please go to: http://www.worldsquashcourts.org/addAccredited.aspx     (There is a 50% price reduction applicable for the remainder of 2013).
