Six NCS Juniors, a Record, Qualify for Harvard Frank Millet Junior Championship Tournament at Harvard University

Congratulations to Cameron Bahadori, Jacqueline Barnes, Geoffrey Keating, Kira Keating, Camille Lanier and Theo Mendez, who qualified to play in the US SQUASH Junior Championship Tournament (Frank Millet at Harvard) November 12-14.

The JCTs are the most difficult tournaments in the nation, and the JCT series of four tournaments is open only to the top 32 nationally-ranked players who apply in each age group. It is a high honor to qualify for this tournament and this is the largest number of NCS Juniors ever to qualify for a JCT. It was especially difficult to gain entry in this JCT as it broke US SQUASH records for applicants.

Kira Keating dropped just one game in four matches to qualify for the GU15 finals, where she lost a close four game match to the #1 ranked player in the nation. Prior to this tournament Kira had not [...Read More...]

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. A lively music [...Read More...]
