Victorian Grand Prix SQUASH Circuit

Squash Vic coordinates the Victorian Squash Grand Prix Tournament Circuit, each year with grades for all standards of squash players. Gradings are determined using the matrix system (see below). If you do not have a matrix rating Squash Vic will assist you in selecting your appropriate grade.

The player with the highest number of points (points allocation listed below) in their grade at the completion of the circuit events (provided they have played at least 50% of the available tournaments in their grade and is a registered Squash Vic member) is recognised as that year's Victorian Squash Grand Prix Circuit Champion for that particular grade. Winners are presented with a trophy at the following year's Squash Vic AGM and Awards Night.
