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...]

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...]

Bronze Nationals, Day 2

NCS juniors played well in another successful day of squash Saturday at Yale University in New Haven, CT. Nine of the fifteen here at the Bronze National Championships will play in semifinal, third place and/or finals matches on Sunday, an incredible result. Quite possibly more would still be playing through Sunday, but in several cases two NCS players had to play each other today, and obviously only one could win.

Having all the NCS players playing here has been great -- the players are all doing their best to support each other. It's like having a home away from home and a fan base hundreds of miles from home.

In the BU15s, Zach Ho topped Theo Mendez in the quarterfinals. Zach advances to the semifinals, and Theo plays a semifinal for the right to the fifth place match. Cameron Bahadori lost in the third round of the consolations, meaning he finished in the top 24 of the 60 players here, a promising start for an NCS rookie junior playing in his [...Read More...]
