New scoring system

New scoring system – As reported earlier, the World Squash Federation went to a new, worldwide scoring system which was ‘point a rally’ (PAR) to 11. This system replaced the ‘hand in/hand out’ scoring to 9 (you only score a point when you serve).

One of the problems associated to the new scoring was the games were over quicker and the level of fitness workout received was reduced. To compensate for this reduced workout, many clubs are now implementing ‘point a rally’ to 15 which keeps with the new scoring system and gives a good workout as well. I would suggest that PAR 15 will be the system for scoring for ‘recreational’ levels in the future.

Please give it a try and see which of the three scoring systems work best for you.
