What are Levels?
SquashLevels uses a bespoke algorithm to assess each player’s current playing level based on their results and their opponents.
It focuses on how well they are playing rather than how many rounds they have progressed through. The ratings are updated match-by-match and they give great insight into how ‘in-form’ the players are right now.
