2017 Provisional Tournament Schedule
Play will start 3.00pm on Friday July 21st - all entrants should be available from this time onwards. That being said, for our 2015 & 2016 tournament, the Boy's U11 & U13, and the Girl's U11, U13, & U15 did not need to start until 8.00am Saturday morning - this might also be the case for our 2017 tournament. And lastly, based on previous years enry size, it is likely that BU17 and BU19 will play two rounds on Friday - the first round between 3.00pm and 6.00pm, and the second round between 6.00pm and 9.00pm.
Finals and consolation finals will be played on Sunday morning. In some cases (particularly in round robin draws) two round might still be necessary on Sunday. Based on the past two years, the very last matches came off court on Sunday at around 2.30pm. On Sunday we only use one venue, and have almost no capacity to alter scheduled times; so for this reason it's very important all entrant's do not make travel plans that involve leaving Charlotteville earlier than 3.00pm.

Regular Tournament Entry is until 7/5/17 at 12:00pm, NOON EST at $115*
Late Tournament Entry is after 7/5/17 at 12:00pm, NOON EST at $150*

The majority of the matches will be played at:
McArthur Squash Center
at Boar's Head Sports Center
200 Wellington Drive
For travel details please click here. McArthur Squash Center has 9 singles courts, including one all glass white ball doubles. The all glass court will be used for tournament matches. The Squash Desk at McArthur Squash Center can be reached at 434-972-6009. The direct line for Tournament Director Mark Allen is 434-972-7424.
The secondary venue is St Anne's Belfield School, which has 5 ASB squash courts. These are located on the Greenway Rise Campus (Upper School) at 2132 Ivy Road, Charlottesville, VA 22903. The courts are behind the Student Activities Center at the rear of the campus. Directions to the Greenway Rise Campus can be found here. If your match is at St. Anne's then the court # on the draw will be preceeded by the abreviation STB. Please note that the STAB courts will only open 15 minutes before play is scheduled to begin, so those wanting to practice should do so at MSC.
Please make certain you make your way to the right campus - we have used the courts several times for other events and a lot or participants make the mistake of going to the Belfield Campus.
The two venues are 1.9 miles apart.
The Boar's Head Inn is adjacent to McArthur Squash Center. We are in the process of securing a preferential rate for the weekend. Plkease check back here for more information from March 1st onwards
Other quality hotels in the Charlottesville area are the Omni and the Courtyard Marriott (At UVA Medical Center and Charlottesville North).
The Cavalier Inn is a cheap and convenient option - it's just 3 miles from the club, and rooms are around $100 per night. And another competitively priced hotel locally is the Graduate on the corner and is one I personally recommend; we use it to host our referee's whenever we have a pro event, and they all really enjoy staying there.
BOAR'S HEAD INN: 434-296-2181
COURTYARD MARIOTT: 434-977-1700 (UVA MEDICAL) 434-973-7100 (NORTH)
CAVALIER INN: 434-296-8111

Charlottesville has an Amtrak station with direct connection from union station in D.C. It also has a small and very convenient airport (CHO) that's 15 minutes from the club. Flying into Richmond is also easy - being a 75 minute drive away - but public transport from Richmond to Charlottesville is limited so I would advise hiring a car. Dulles Airport is a 2 hour 15 minute journey - but allow as much as 4 hours for Friday afternoon traffic.
