Squash Courts @ St. Georges - 372 Purgatory Rd, Middletown, RI 02842.  
Use first school entrance when driving up the hill from the beach area.

 

Parking: Park in first large parking lot on the left.  Squash court entrance is inside glass doors to one side of parking lot.

Saturday matches start at 9am and will end roughly at 7pm.
Sunday matches start at 9am and will end roughly at 2pm.

 

The players will get 4 matches over the course of the weekend assuming no defaults or injuries. Some players may only get three matches due to the way the draw plays out.  Players play to a place and each final placement has points associated with it for the overall Team Score which will determine the Final Standings.

Refs: Coaches, please help us launch the start of each day of matches by providing one player from your team who doesn’t have a match in the first hour or so of the day, to help ref the 1st matches on court.  Then the players from the previous match on court mark and ref the next match on. Loser marks, winner refs. The ref makes all calls and the refs call is final. The marker does not make up/down calls, that is a common misunderstanding of the rules.  The refs call is final on all things. The ref can of course ask the marker for help.

We will be using the live Ipad scoring system at each court. You will also use the clipboard and score sheet to keep score in case there is any technical difficulties.

Coaches: only official coaches of NEISA teams may coach players at this NEISA event like at your dual matches.  Players’ individual coaches from outside of the school are not permitted. Coaches should be able to be verified by the NEISA Ex. Committee as members of the schools’ squash coaching staff. Parents, Alumni, etc may not coach players.
