Play will commence no earlier than Saturday at 8 AM and finish no later than Monday at 3 PM. We plan to start no earlier than 9 AM each day and finish by 7 PM each day (except Monday, where we will aim to finish by 2 PM or earlier). However, we may need to start earlier or end later, depending on entries.
However, we will not start earlier than Saturday at 8 AM or finish later than Monday at 3 PM.
This tournament is on Memorial Day weekend. No need to miss any school!
More matches and opportunies for more points. We will seek to play this tournament from 1st to 18th place. That means more matches, giving more players an opportunity to build their match skills. Plus, it gives players more points for playing well. For example a 7th place finish has 50 more points than 7-8, 13th place 37 points more than 13-16, and 17th has 87 more points than 17-24! We can't guarantee playing it out to these many places, as it depends on entries. We are fairly confident we can do it.
The tournament is organized by National Capital Squash, which is well known for running well organized Gold tournaments.

The main venue will be the brand new Squash on Fire facility located at 2225 M St NW, Washington, DC 20037. This incredible facility is scheduled to open in April and has 8 courts. The other venue is at Equinox Sports Club, with 4 additional courts, located one block away at 1170 22nd St NW.
We plan to run the tournament at just these two facilities, however if entries exceed roughly 215 players, we may need to add another venue.
The tournament hotel is the Washington Marriott Georgetown, one block from the Squash on Fire courts. The rate is $149 per night. The hotel is located at 1221 22nd Street NW Washington DC 20037.
Book online here by May 10 to obtain this special rate.
If rooms are sold out at our special rate, please contact the tournament director (information tab) and we will ask the hotel to add more rooms to our room block.

There is a Park America parking garage at 2145 M St NW (same block as the hotel) with a much lower rate than available at the hotel. The garage has the best rate in the area -- $7 a day on Saturday from 10 AM to Midnight and Sunday from 10 AM to 10 PM. If you leave the car there overnight, the rate is $30 per 24 hours.
