Walkover Player Guidelines


KZN Squash have announced a new and efficient feature to their Scorecard System which introduces a player named ‘Walkover’ for each club. The purpose of this is to enable all league captains who capture score cards to now capture a fixture with correct name in the event of a walkover being awarded.
In order for a card to be captured into the system it has to have all the names entered however there are times unfortunately that a team is not able to field a full side and in order to capture the card would have to use another club member’s name.
The problem with this method is that it would appear as though a player had played twice in one week for two different teams which is against league rules.
The player now called Walkover is selected from the drop down list and entered onto the card.
NB: It is mandatory according to current and previous league rules that the walkover is given at the last position in the team. eg. If you have a 4 person team then the walkover will be awarded at position 4. If you have a 5 player team then the walkover will be awarded at position 5.

The Walkover player must be used for the player who is conceding the match. The opponent’s name must still be entered and he must win the match 11-0, 11-0, 11-0 or 15-0. This will mean that the person who has received the walkover will still be reflected as a 3-0 win, but he/she cannot play again in that week.

Scenario 1:
In a 4 person team, player in position 1 is not available.
All remaining three players move up one position and the walkover is awarded at position 4.

Scenario 2:
In a 4 person team, players in positions 2 and 3 are not available.
Player at position 4 moves up to positions 2 and walkovers are awarded at positions 3 and 4.
