Penalties

The following penalties will apply, in accordance with the ESF Junior Guidelines:

If a player makes a late withdrawal from a tournament (2 days or less before the start date), a doctor’s certificate confirming injury/illness must be provided to avoid penalties. The medical certificate (with a translation in English) must clearly state the player’s name, date of birth and the nature of the illness/injury; the certificate must cover the date of the relevant tournament and must be sent to the ESF office within two days after the final day of the tournament (email: esf@europeansquash.com; fax +44 1424 202463).  Any player making a late withdrawal not supported by a medical certificate will receive zero points for the tournament which will count as one of their 4 best results for the rolling 12 month period and will be taken into account when dividing the points to obtain the ranking average.   This penalty will be applied automatically unless the ESF office receives a doctor’s certificate within two days of the final day of the tournament.  

If a player commits this offence for a second time within a 12 month period, he/she will be banned from the ESF Junior Circuit for a period of 12 months.

If a player has entered a tournament and fails to turn up, he/she will receive zero points for the tournament.  These zero points will count as one of the player’s 4 best results for the rolling 12 month period and will be taken into account when dividing the points to obtain the ranking average.  This penalty will be applied automatically unless the ESF office receives a doctor’s certificate within two days of the final day of the tournament (email: esf@europeansquash.com; fax +44 1424 202463).  The medical certificate (with a translation in English) must clearly state the player’s name, date of birth and the nature of the illness/injury; and must cover the date of the relevant tournament.
