Note about divisions:

This year the Minnesota Squash Association Board and tournament committee decided to keep the draws similar to last year’s State Singles Tournament. We are going to ask you to sign up for the following divisons: A,B,C, and D. The 1st round loser in each division will enter a new draw. Their next match will be in the 1st round of the following divisions: A/B, B/C, C/D, Novice.

To make this work, we will ask you to sign up based on the following recommendation: A (4.6 and above), B (3.6 - 4.5), C (2.6 - 3.5), D (2.5 and below). You can play up if you like but you may not play down (the tournament committee will strongly enforce this). We will work very hard to seed the draws accurately to ensure fair and competitive play. Our decisions are always guided by our efforts to grow the game locally.

 

Any questions? Please email Tournament Director Thierry Fernaine at squashmn@gmail.com. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at the tournament!
