The number of staff members is entirely dependent on the number of facilities a tournament is being played at, and the number of courts at each facility. The ability to effectively run a tournament, manage the players, respond to questions, intervene in conflict, and provide an all around positive experience is largely dependent on having the appropriate number of staff members on hand to help out – you can’t do this alone.
US Squash’s staffing recommendations (roles and numbers) are listed below. Please note that these recommendations are reflective of one facility – therefore, you should multiply the below recommendations by the number of facilities you are using.
Tournament Operations Training
What if I don’t have enough staff to help me run my event? US Squash has trained tournament operations staff should Tournament Directors wish to hire people who are already knowledgeable and experienced in running events.
The Operations training is similar to that of the Tournament Director training however, it is aimed at staff assisting at an event so that they are knowledgeable in the processes regarding its’ operation.
The Tournament Operations Certification can be found on your club locker profile. By selecting the “My Profile” page, you need to click the small right arrow ‘>’ under the renew membership section, which will allow you to scroll across to find the “Training” section. Once selecting the training tab the correct test can be accessed by clicking on the “Tournament Operations Training” option.
