McLean VA artist Carol Hahn will be at the tournament to present her new & cool collection of squash ball necklaces and accessories for boys and girls!

6-PLAYER Round Robins (RRs) are played as two RRs of three players each.  To determine finishing positions, winner of Pool A plays winner of Pool B.  #2 in A plays #2 in B .  #3 in A plays #3 in B.

We reserve the right to combine divisions if there is an insufficient number of players in a division to make a valid Round Robin (minimum 4) or draw (minimum 8). Players can be placed in higher age groups in order to make valid draws. If that happens we try to match the affected players by age and skill rating as closely as possible. 

JUNIOR GUIDELINES & CODE OF CONDUCT:  Please read US SQUASH Junior Guidelines  and Code of Conduct for information on how tournaments are run.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD AT MCLEAN RACQUET & HEALTH CLUB, 1472 CHAIN BRIDGE ROAD, MCLEAN VA 22101.  We will attempt to play any 4-player round robins on Saturday only.

Note 

  • All players who sign up after the regular entry deadline are considered late entries. These players should assume that they are on the wait list unless they have been told otherwise by the Tournament Director.

Please note: Players who forgo their refereeing responsibilities will be penalized. If a player does not fulfill their refereeing responsibilities, they will lose their current US Squash referee certification and will need to retake the online age-specific referee exam. In addition, players abandoning their referee responsibilities will be given zero points for their participation in the event. 

If a player withdraws from the tournament after the beginning of the tournament, they must still referee the following matches on the courts where the defaulted matches would have occurred. Failure to do so will result in zero points for their participation in the event. The only exception to this is if the player is unable to return due to serious illness or injury, in which case a doctor’s note must be emailed to tournaments@ussquash.com within one week of the last day of the tournament.

PLAYERS: WINNERS AND LOSERS ARE REQUIRED TO MARK AND REFEREE THE NEXT MATCH ON THEIR COURT AT RISK OF DEFAULT IF THEY DO NOT DO THIS OR GET A SUBSTITUTE. 

WARM-UPS:  Limited to 5 minutes. Sharing the ball is a US SQUASH Rule. Hit to yourself no more than three times, then to your opponent. Referees time warm-ups and ensure fair warm-ups (no ball-hogging).

PARENTS OF PLAYERS: MAY NOT INTERFERE WITH PLAYER/REFEREES' CONTROL OF MATCHES PER USQ RULE. ANY ISSUES? SEE AT TOURNAMENT ADMINISTRATOR. THANK YOU.
