Are ratings the same across the country or ages?
The rating system measures players' ability on a unified scale. Therefore, player ratings are consistent across all squash players. The rating algorithm relies on match information being logged from all sources, including tournaments, leagues, ladders, and friendly matches. This large data set contributes to the high accuracy rate of the algorithm. While many players compete only within their group or club, the algorithm uses crossover matches between groups to calibrate ratings across regions, ages and gender.
