This time line is subject to change. Players that sign-up will be divided into 'draws' (brackets) of comparable skills. On tournament day all brackets will be playing. This implies that if some brackets contain large numbers of players, “qualifying” games will be held.
The “qualifying” games are played during the 'pre-amble period'. You are responsible for scheduling your own matches and reporting the results. If you wish to have a referee, feel free to organize that too. Decide on best of 3 or 5 games deciding a match before starting.
The games on tournament day will commence with best out of 3 games to decide a match but the playoffs will be best out of 5 to decide a match.

In order to maximize the fun factor, all players will be placed in brackets of comparable skills. At this time we envision these brackets, but they may change. If you want to let the squash coach decide on which bracket is appropriate for you, don't submit a bracket preference (or state undecided).
|Women's Open||Women only|
|C||Beginning Players 1)|
1) this may include persons who never played before … if you need a racket & goggles let us know when you sign up.
Any player is welcome to stop by the squash courts MWF 11:30-13:00. During this period many of us “lunch timers” play pick-up squash, all levels. You're welcome to join. If you do not know what bracket you wish to play in, somebody will be present to observe you playing squash for a few minutes and determine the appropriate bracket. Or simply don't state a bracket preference.
All squash rules apply, familiarize yourself with them.
Here is a link: ABBREVIATED RULES ON SQUASH
By signing-up you agree to:
We remind all players that the safety of your opponent is your primary responsibility
We'll try to have some prizes for all brackets.
Please consider making some volunteer monetary contributions. These contributions will also support the availability of coffee & donuts, sport drinks, fruits etc.
You may indicate your preferred bracket to participate in. However, bracket & match assignments are ultimately decided upon by the Wesleyan Squash Coach. => Final assignments and game schedule will be posted => sometime friday afternoon/evening (April 20th).

This year, a crowd of 45 players spanning all levels of skills and age ranges joined the WesFest'07 Squash Tourney. Faculty, staff, students, family, alumni and friends. Divided into 4 “Draws” of matching skills, by our own <hi yellow>Wesleyan Squash Coach Shona Kerr</hi> (thank you!!), the games began around 10 AM. All matches were best of five games and roughly 70 matches later the finalists emerged. This year Robert Broadfoot takes with him the “Lunchtimers Holy Grail”. We expect to see it back during the WesFest'08 Squash Tourney!
<hi orange>Thanks to all for participating, you made it a grand fun event.</hi>
