At the 2017 National Forum a recommendation was put forward to change the scoring policy for all club, district and national events. This followed a review of the changes implemented in 2016.

The recommendation put forward was:

All events will be played using PAR (point a rally) 11. Any matches entered into iSquash must be played using PAR 11, best of 5. The only exception to this is the Masters Nationals where the scoring will be as follows:
·         50+ and below age groups PAR 11
·         55+ and above age groups PAR 15

The meeting did not reach a decision and it was agreed that the proposal should be circulated for wider consultation. 

Current recommendation and policy:

All junior events will be played using PAR (point a rally) 11. Where a junior competes in a senior event the below ruling based on grading will take effect.

We recommend using PAR (point a rally) to 11 scoring for higher graded players (roughly B1 and above), and to 15 for players graded roughly B2 and below.

At national events, PAR to 11 scoring is used for B Grade SuperChamps, A & B Grades in Champion of Champions, Cousins Shield / Mitchell Cup, all junior age group events, and the top divisions of open events. PAR to 15 scoring is used in grades C-F / J in SuperChamps and Champion of Champions, all national Masters events, and where appropriate (using the guidelines above) for lower divisions of open events.

The scoring system used should be the same for every player in a tournament grade / division.

* 1. Do you agree with the recommendation to introduce PAR 11 for all club, district and national events?

* 2. PAR 11 is the internationally adopted scoring system. Should SNZ follow suit?

* 3. Do you think PAR 11 encourages players to develop a more attacking style of play and is therefore good for the future development of the game?

* 4. Do you think matches played to PAR 11 are too short?  

* 5. Should all junior matches be PAR 11?

* 6. In your opinion at what grade should PAR 11 be played?

* 7. Do you agree with the recommendation that any matches entered into iSquash must be played PAR 11 and best of 5?

* 8. Do you agree with the scoring recommendation for Master's Nationals?
50+ and below play PAR 11
55+ and above play to PAR 15

* 9. Do you have any further suggestions regarding changes to the scoring policy?
