A couple updates-- 

 
We had to make some draw adjustments to comply with US Squash Adult tournament rule that you must be rated at or below the rating of the draw you are in. For example, if you are a 3.7 you have to play in the 4.0 and not the 3.5.  We have gone through and made some adjustments based on who needed to move based on this info.  Please check ussquash.com for the new draw updates.  We haven't had to do this before but I will say that ratings wise, the draws look very close and competitive.  Obviously ratings are ratings and may not be reflective of where you think you below.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 

Start times: We will release these as soon as we can to give everyone travel prep time.  Please note that the following draws start Friday night and note that not everyone will have a match Friday night.
