Competition FAQ’s

In order to set-up a SportyHQ user account you should logon to

Click on ‘Create Account’ in the top right hand corner of the website and follow the on-screen instructions. This will then generate an e-mail to your e-mail address you have entered. You should open the e-mail from SportyHQ and click on the link. A new page will then open asking for you to complete further information before submitting your profile.

When you set-up your SportyHQ profile you should have selected the club you are a member of. All clubs are automatically linked with your regional association and then the national governing body. By selecting a club in Scotland, your dashboard will then automatically display events and competitions linked to the governing body and sactioned on the Scottish Squash competition pathway.

When setting up your SportyHQ profile it will ask users to select their ‘country’. If the ‘Country‘ box is set to ‘United Kingdom‘ only local authorities in England will show in the ‘State/Provience‘ box.

To select a Scottish local authority search and select ‘Scotland‘ in the ‘Country‘ box. Scottish local authorities will then appear as a selection in the ‘State/Provience‘ box.

Players without a ranking or are new to SportyHQ will have a provisional ranking until they have played five
matches. This is so the system has a good idea of where they sit before affecting other player’s rankings.
