Fisher Cup Championship — First Round May 21-24

May 21, 2012toMay 24, 2012

Divisions 3, 4 and 5 will have a round of 16 match on each division’s regular league night.

Premier and Division 2 each have a draw of eight, so the first matches will be the week of May 28.

The draws and results will be available here.

US Squash does not list tournaments by division.  Here is how they appear:

Premier — 5.5
Division 2 — 4.5
Division 3 — 4.0
Division 4 — 3.5
Division 5 — 3.0

Every player should plan on playing, in addition to the regular league night, one match on Saturday June 2 and one match on Sunday June 3.  As you play through the tournament, your matches should get more competitive and, hopefully, more fun.

Every draw will play to place, up to 10th place (to 8th place for Premier and Division 2).  So if you lose your first round match, you can still win the consolation draw or reach the consolation final.  If you win your first match in divisions 3, 4 or 5, you will play three more times no matter what.

If for some reason you can’t play, please let us know as soon as possible so we can avoid defaults with unnecessary travel, unnecessarily reserve a court that is not used or pay for courts we don’t use.
