Substitute Players

The Sub Pool can consist of two types of players:

  1. Players who are members of a club, but that club does not have enough players to field a team

  2. Players who are not members of clubs but would still like to stay involved in squash by subbing for other teams on an as-needed basis. These players must pay a registration fee of $20 via etransfer to: [email protected]

Hybrid Teams and Club Memberships

All TDWSA players/teams are expected to belong to a Squash Ontario member club. A player may take a regular spot on the roster of another club, outside of the one they hold a membership with, if there are not enough players at home club to form a viable team and if the club fielding the team approves. If you wish to form a team, and your club is not a member of Squash Ontario (, please contact [email protected] for next steps.

It is preferred, and strongly recommended, that all players belong to a club, whenever possible. Memberships are what keep the clubs and the sport vibrant.

It is assumed that players who are not members of clubs are in that position because of club closures, club proximity to home/work, or financial reasons. The TDWSA reserves the right to review player eligibility for the sub pool.

Congratulations to our summer C/D champs, Mayfair Parkway. They eked out a narrow victory over Pickering. Each team won two matches, but games won decided the contest, with Parkway taking 7 and Pickering prevailing in only 6.  The Bronze went to Balmy Beach with a victory over One Health.

Many thanks to Robin Clarke and the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club for hosting the event for the second year in a row.
