Video: 1986 Rolex USSRA Softball Squash National Championships in Washington, DC

In September 1986, Washington hosted the USSRA Softball National Championships at area clubs. Mr. Meherji K. Madan produced a VHS videotape of the event called "A Vignette, With Love" in honor of the late Ambassador William H.G. FitzGerald, friend and sponsor of squash and creator of the annual FitzGerald Cup team match between Baltimore and Washington first held  in 1955, still contested.

The Championships boasted 350 male and female players in various skill and age groups. It was hosted at five different venues!  The Vignette, funded by a modest NCS grant of $1,000, captures the spirit of full cooperation  among area clubs, and the excitement of the United States' most prestigious squash championship.  See scenes of the competitions and interviews of the players and organizers and squash personalities including past USSRA Executive Director Darwin Kingsley and Geff Fisher, in whose honor the annual NCS Fisher Cup has been played since 1992.

Bronze Nationals Report

Many NCS Juniors came home with trophies from the Bronze National Championships at Yale Sunday April 25, 2010, and those who did not can be proud of their achievements. Every player who entered proved he or she is competitive in a nationally contested tournament!

Here is a report on the nine NCS players who played through the last day of the tournament:

Geoffrey Keating, playing up an age division in BU19, took second place, losing in the finals to Baltimore's David Snyder. Just two years ago, Geoff made it to the semis in the BU15 Bronze Nationals, so you could say he made more than four years of progress in less than two years.

Zach Ho lost a very tight 5 game match in the BU15 semifinals this morning, with two games decided 11-9 and one 12-10! Zach went on to win third place in another closely contested five game match. This was Zach's first national tournament, a fantastic result!

Alex Alvarez won third place in BU17, [...Read More...]

The FitzGerald Cup stays in Washington

Report on the Annual FitzGerald Cup Competition

Prepared by Glenn Canner

The FitzGerald Cup stays in Washington!

The 62nd annual FitzGerald Cup competition between Washington and Baltimore was played on January 9th at the University Club in Washington with the Washington team extending its winning streak to 9 years and its overall historic dominance to 44 wins against only 18 losses.

The Washington team won the competition 10 matches to 3, but the outcome was more in doubt than the score might suggest as several of the matches were highly competitive and could have broken the other way. Once again, led by youth, and their recent college squash experience, the Washington team was extremely strong at the top of the lineup.

Led by Dan Petrie (all American at Brown), Hesham El Halaby (all American at Princeton) and Patrick Harris (star at Rochester) the Washington team was a force to be reckoned with.  Overall, [...Read More...]

In 4 hotly contested close games, Schuyler Haynes lost to Brooksie Riley who is a recent transplant to Baltimore and played for the NCS team last year!

After the official competition, several of the Baltimore players stayed to play additional friendly games with their DC opponents.
