Squash BC is thrilled to launch a new league starting this October: the Vancouver Women’s Squash League! The Vancouver Women’s Squash League (VWSL) is operated and sanctioned by Squash BC and provides women in the Lower Mainland with opportunities to access interclub squash competition in a welcoming and fun environment. VWSL will come with its own rule set and structure, allowing the league to evolve and best serve its community and participants.
The season will run from October 2023 to May 2024, with a start date of October 10th, 2023. The first half of the season will run until a holiday break in December 2023. Play will resume in January 2024 and continue until the end of the season. Matches will be scheduled to take place on Tuesday evenings. Both the holiday break and the season end will involve social events! There will be opportunities for individuals to join throughout the season, with the option of registering for the entirety of it, or joining halfway through the season. To guarantee a spot on a team, register by Tuesday September 19 at 1:00 PM PST!
VWSL is a team-based singles squash league and there are three ways to register:
- Individual Registration: You can sign up as a regular player now on Club Locker and make sure to identify your affiliated club. If you do not have a home club, sign up in the unaffiliated category and we will help you find a team.
- Spare List: You can sign up to be a spare for the season on Club Locker and play up to 3 games throughout the season (Oct-May). After your third game, you will have to upgrade your registration to a regular player.
- Team Registration: If your club pays for their players to register as a team, your Club Administrator or Captain will register you by emailing the Competitions Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reach out to your Club Admin to confirm whether your club has team registration.
Whether you register as a team, individual, or spare, you must have a Full Squash BC Membership for the entire season (Note: Squash BC Recreational Memberships are not valid for sanctioned league play). All 2022/23 Squash BC Memberships will expire on November 1, 2023. Please ensure that you have an active 2023/24 membership by November 1, 2023 and are aware of the membership changes coming into effect on September 1, 2023.
Register yourself on Club Locker today!
We encourage all participants interested in VWSL to participate in Women’s Squash Week events between September 18th – October 1st, 2023.
