Divisions: Check Starting Times




Notes:
Please refer to the above tabs for all information about this tournament

Some important notes about the weekend (division start times are at the bottom):

1-PARKING- Though parking in Providence is plentiful and easy compared to most venues, there is no parking in the lot directly outside the club on Saturday May 11th due to a school event. Please Allow extra time on Saturday for parking, and take advantage of uber/hotel shuttles/etc. The lot may be used Friday AFTER 3PM and all day Sunday but NOT Saturday. There is free on street parking (not overnight) on all streets surrounding the club. South of Lloyd Avenue some streets are metered, but metered spots are all well marked. There is a public high school parking lot two blocks north on Hope St.

Kids may be dropped off at the front entrance to the courts, but please allow extra time especially on Saturday!

2-Referees- As the tournament regulars among you know, finding referees for the first round of matches each day can be difficult. We will have some local referees helping out, but could always use more. If you are a qualified referee and would like to help out, each volunteer ref will receive their choice of a free Oliver grip, over-grip, headband, or wristband. Please email pete@nicolsquashclub.com if you'd like to volunteer either Saturday at 8am, or Sunday at 8am. 

3-Food. There will be breakfast (Bagels and Spreads) and lunch (Sandwiches/wraps with vegetarian options) at the courts Saturday and Sunday for tournament participants. and there are many good food options within a 5 minute walk. Thayer street is at the heart of the Brown University campus and is a 5 min walk from the club. https://www.goprovidence.com/neighborhoods/thayer-street-providence/

Weather permitting there will also be food trucks outside of the venue on Saturday. Squashbusters will be selling Gatorade and snacks on site, and there is a CVS 3 blocks away on Thayer St. for other needs. There is a full service coffee shop/snack bar on Moses Brown’s campus (100 yards from the squash building) that will be open Saturday from 9am-3pm, but accepts cash only. 

4-There will be a trainer on site for the majority of the tournament beginning at 5:30pm on Friday. 

5-There are day use lockers as well as showers at the venue. Players may bring a lock if they wish to use the lockers. Showers are available but please bring soap and towels.
