Internal League
The internal box league can be viewed by anyone at http://ipswich.clubnet.org.uk/racketball-leagues/ where players will be able to use their passwords to input results, track performance, etc. It also has a link to the booking system.



Every year we use the statistics produced by the league system to run two League related championships. 
 
The League Championship is based on the top two divisions in the League and is biased towards the top division. So, the winner of the League Championship really is the top league performer of the year.
 
The Points Championship, aka “The Best of the Rest”, is for all other players and games in the bottom division can earn as many points as any other. So, the Points Champion tends to be the player who has improved most over the season regardless of their playing standard.
 
Points
1 point for every game won
1 bonus point for every match won
2 bonus points for a 3-0 win, 1 bonus point for a 3-1 win
1 bonus point for Div 1 players

Which Ball?

England Squash & Racketball have updated the guidance they give on which ball we should be using.

Briefly;
    Elite players competing in national championships, regional and county premier leagues should be encouraged to
play with the black ball.
    Players competing in leagues below premier leagues should use the blue ball, unless both players agree/prefer to use the black.
    All recreational players should use the blue ball.

The balls that are currently approved by ESR at both the Blue and Black specification are Dunlop, Price and Tecnifibre.
