SEASON GUIDELINES
 
COVID INFORMATION
 
*Please note that we will be updating this section on an ongoing basis as Covid policies continue to change. 
 
This season unvaccinated players are required to wear masks at the Ox Ridge Club. All players are required to wear goggles on court. Wearing masks may cause your goggles to haze or fog.  If you are experiencing this, we encourage you to purchase a face shield, e.g., iMask. The iMask+ WSD Mid Length Face Shield product has been designed for the specific needs of Squash Players.  The slightly shorter visor allows for freedom of movement while still protecting the face area. This protective barrier can help in the fight against COVID-19, and also provide impact resistance to protect your face from ball or racquet strike.  The iMask comes in adult and junior sizes (11% smaller for 7-10 year olds), and can be worn over Rx glasses.  You can learn more about the iMask (WSD Mid Length Face Shield) at https://www.imaskusa.com/
