SquashLevels Launches in New Zealand18 Oct 2023
Squash New Zealand Poipātū Aotearoa is pleased to announce the globally acclaimed SquashLevels rating system is to be implemented in New Zealand.
SquashLevels will replace the current grading system, elevating the competitive landscape within the New Zealand squash community and offering the opportunity for New Zealand players to compare themselves against squash players globally.
SquashLevels is now in more than 30 countries and is regarded as one of the most advanced rating systems in the world. The system provides players with an exceptionally accurate assessment of their playing level, calibrated across diverse regions and countries.
“We’re really pleased to be bringing this world leading technology to New Zealand,” said Squash New Zealand Poipātū Aotearoa Chief Executive Martin Dowson.
“This is one of a raft of changes we’re implementing to improve player experience and we’re excited to see the benefits it’s going to bring to players of all levels, up and down the country.”
SquashLevels Co-CEO Jethro Binns says the system will be revolutionary for New Zealand squash players.
“SquashLevels is all about making the experience more enjoyable for players and giving them unparalleled access to data which will help them analyse and improve their play,” said Binns.
SquashLevels and Squash New Zealand will work together over the next 12-months to integrate the platform at the social, grassroots, club and elite level, digitally revolutionising the sport for all players.
Players within New Zealand will be able to sign up to the SquashLevels free service, allowing access to their level, national and global ratings, as well as having access to the SquashLevels social network.
Premium memberships are available for those who wish to access enhanced features such as the head-to-head analysis tool, in-depth match review, what-if analysis and full match and level history.
SquashLevels is a results-based ranking system. As players compete in leagues and tournaments, their results automatically flow into SquashLevels from their existing results providers.
The unique algorithm calculates a level for each player based on their opponents’ level, their result including points scores, behavioural modelling and various other factors, making SquashLevels one of the most advanced rating systems for racket sports in the world.
