Please note that you may not be able to access all features of iSquash if you are using old, unsupported versions of internet browsers (eg. Internet Explorer 8). We recommend downloading the free upgrade for your browser software.

After the upgrade on 11 April 2013 where we upgraded our server hardware and software, iSquash may not work on old versions of Android smartphones. If you cannot access iSquash through your android smartphone, try downloading the free "Firefox Browser for Android" application as iSquash will work on this browser (this app only works on Android 2.2 and above).
Under certain circumstances manual adjustments may be made to change players' grading points. For information on how this can occur, please see the Manual Adjustments Policy Information Sheet:
After extensive testing the iSquash tournament module is now available for clubs to use to run their tournaments. A user-manual is available here: http://www.squash.org.nz/sit/support (you will need to log-in to iSquash to access it - under 'Help' on the left-hand menu).
Please note that although extensive testing has taken place, the development of the module is still very much a learning curve, for clubs and Squash New Zealand alike. If you are experiencing problems, or would like help with the module, please contact us.
Players can also use the tournament module to enter themselves into tournaments. A list of tournaments open to be entered in iSquash will appear on the iSquash homepage - just click on the hyperlink to get to the entry page. Check your contact details when entering (if they are incorrect, you can update them in 'Edit my Profile' under the Welcome tab on the left-hand side of the page). When you have successfully entered a tournament, a yellow star will appear next to it on the iSquash home page.
Christchurch Squash Club has developed this scoresheet builder, which can be used in conjuction with the iSquash Tournament Module, and kindly agreed to share it with other clubs: Scoresheet producer.
The development of the Squash IT Platform was highlighted by the Squash New Zealand Strategic Plan in 2008 as a key driver for the development of squash in New Zealand. It was seen as an innovative use of technology as an enabler to clubs and as a sport development tool that would help squash to work together.
