Useful iSquash Information for Maintaining Club Memberships


If someone is new to squash, you can register them in iSquash and add them to your club membership by using “Add Member”.  If they have played squash before then they will already be members in iSquash and you cannot re-register them using the “Add Member”.

If a player is already registered in iSquash, they need to log in and apply for membership at your club (by going to My Clubs, clicking on Apply for Membership, using the drop down select your club and then click Add).  Once they have applied, you need to go in to Member Management, and accept the membership.

Accepting Pending Members
Once logged in on the left hand side is the menu.  Go down to “Member Administration” and just under that is “Member Management”. Click on this.
The District will be your District, the Club will be your club and Membership will be “All”.  Using the drop down arrow, change Membership to “PendingMember” and click on the black “Refresh” button.
Tick the empty box to the right of the person you wish to make a member and then click on the orange “Make Full Members” button

*To delete Members from your club Membership, you first have to suspend their membership.

Clubs maintain their own contact details in iSquash, including those shown to players looking for a club on the Squash New Zealand website http://www.squashnz.co.nz/play-squash/where-toplay/clubs.cfm

Anyone in your club with committee status can do this by logging in to iSquash and going to Club Administration > Club Maintenance.

The first tab is your Club Information and this is what is shown to players looking for a club in your area.  The third tab is Club Contacts and contains your clubs President, Treasurer, Secretary/Club Administrator and iSquash Administrator/Statistician.  If any of the names are incorrect, you can change this by using the drop down next to the role, find the correct person and then click Save.  If any of their e-mail addresses or phone numbers are wrong, their details can be updated in Member Management and this will flow through to the Club Contacts tab.

If a person’s e-mail address is incorrect or missing then they will not receive e-mails sent by the District, iSquash generated e-mails such as pending member requests or important notices from Squash New Zealand (such as Grading List cut-off date for SuperChamps, Roadshow details, Membership Return notices, Event Calendar close off dates, iSquash upgrades etc).
