The RA Squash community is dynamic and runs the following leagues on a weekly basis.
Open City League (OCL) /ODSA
The Ottawa & District Squash Association (ODSA) operates seven divisions of competitive league play which reflect the skill of the players. Open City League sessions start in mid-October and run until mid-April. There are five sessions of five weeks – two before the Holiday Season and three after. Each divisional team is made up of four players who represent their club every Wednesday evening in match play at various club venues in the Ottawa/Gatineau region. Last year the RA fielded eight teams. Each RA OCL team is made up of players registered in the ODSA ranking system computer ranking system (computer in the lounge next to the squash courts) based on ranking.
Come out and join the fun and spirit of team competition. Check out the ODSA website at www.odsa.ca for teams, schedules, events, programs and rankings.

The Women’s City League provides an opportunity to meet players and enjoy the camaraderie of other squash enthusiasts, both on game night (Thursdays) and at a social event at the end of each session. Players are organized into box leagues based on the player rankings from the ODSA ranking system - Rankenstein. This format ensures competitive matches. There is a fall session (September), a winter session (January) and a spring session (March).
Want to get involved? The WCL is comprised of primarily RA Squash members. However women players from other clubs are invited to join this league.

Mixed House League
The Mixed House League is targeted at the recreational player and is designed to provide members with a continuing source of challenging games with others of their level. It is an excellent way for new members to meet other players of similar playing ability.
Houses are composed of three to four players, and play involves a round robin event for the players in each house. Within a designated time (usually five weeks) new houses are established based on the results of the previous round. Results are based both on the number of matches played as well as the results of the matches. Players move up or down based on their results, ensuring players always play other players of similar ability.
