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.

In 2020 PSA and SquashLevels revealed the launch of the ‘PSA Power Ratings’ which will provide an accurate, up-to-date indication of a pro player’s current form.

This is often an indication of how players will move across the World Rankings, often highlighting up-and-coming players.

Sivasangari Subramaniam

Subramaniam completed a dream week, taking down top seeds Nour El Sherbini and Hania El Hammamy, to lift the PSA World Tour Gold-level title. As a result she has catapulted into the PSA Power Ratings top ten at #10, from #15 before the tournament, as well as increasing her level by an incredible 12.53% to 13,828.
