  • Schedule Update
  • Streaming Available

Schedule - At this point, given the number of entries signed up, we are planning on making every effort to schedule the event on the Saturday and Sunday only.  This could potentially mean longer days on Saturday and Sunday, however we should be able to avoid matches taking place on Monday.  The draws officially close on Tuesday, Feb. 12 and we will have your player starts times by Wednesday evening.   

Streaming - We are pleased to announce that all matches at the Squash On Fire venue will be live streamed* and will be free to all entrants, courtesy of Squash On Fire. Matches will be available for replay only until one week after the tournament and then will no longer be available online.

Here are some ideas of how you can use this service:

  • After you finish your match, watch it using the replay feature. See what you can improve in the next match.
  • When you get back home, go over one of your matches with your coach to see what you need to improve.

And of course, share this with your family and friends back home who want to cheer you on!  Some professional players on the PSA use live streaming and get coaching between games. After the leave the court, they call a coach or friend back home.  We hope you enjoy it!

*Players may choice to 'opt out' by contacting the Tournament Director during the weekend.  If for any reason you do not want your match to be streamed, please tell the Tournament Desk before your match with at least 2 hours notice. Please indicate the time of your match and the court number, and we can turn off the video for your match. 

**2.1.19**Upcoming tournament schedule:

    We are thrilled to be hosting the upcoming Junior Silver tournament hosted at Squash On Fire and we've been receiving email regarding the schedule so we want to share this quick note.

Schedule:  US Squash requires host venues to be prepared for full draws in all divisions so we have to prepare as such.   However, historically Silver events usually do not get as many players as Gold events so we are usuallyable to complete the tournament in 2 days (Saturday/Sunday.)

   There is always the potential of play going into Monday and if so we would aim to conclude the matches as early as possible, before or close to noon/1pm. Given the current entry/withdraw deadlines it is still challenging to more detailed information in advance but we will make every effort to minimize the school disruptions.  

Email List for Updates:  If there are additional people (such as parents or coaches) who would like to be added to the email list to receive updates on this tournament, please have them fill out this quick form.

Saturday February 16 2019, all players need to be available starting at 8:00am EST. 
Monday, February 18 2019, all players need to be available until 4:00pm EST. ** please see note in Recent News

AIRPORT AND AMTRAK OPTIONS:

You can fly into the DC area via the three regional airports -- Washington Reagan, Washington Dulles and Baltimore Washington (BWI) Airports. Amtrak provides two trains per hour from New York and Boston into Union Station, which is 20 minutes via public transportation to the Squash on Fire venue.

United has many nonstops into Dulles, while American provides many nonstops into Reagan and Southwest provides many nonstops into Baltimore Washington Airport.  There are Amtrak and low cost MARC commuter trains (see the info for the "Penn" line) from BWI to Washington DC.  Reagan Airport is most convenient to the venues.  Reagan is the easiest to use if you plan on using public transportation to get to and from the airport and would have the cheapest cab fares to all the venues. 

Southwest Airlines now flies in to Reagan and has a major hub at BWI, which normally has the lowest fares of the three airports.

Estimated times using public transportation from each airport (not counting waiting time for departing trains and buses, but counting walking time to Squash on Fire):

Reagan -- 20-25 minutes

Dulles -- 1 hour

BWI -- 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes

Estimated Uber fares and time for Uber X, assuming no surge pricing and travel during off peak hours:

Reagan -- $17-$22, 12-20 minutes.

Dulles -- $40-$50, 30-45 minutes.

BWI -- $50-$60, 45-60 minutes.

Taxis are more expensive, but each airport has plentiful taxi service.

Using public transit to get to the courts:

Reagan: This link explains.

Dulles: This link explains.

BWI: This link explains.  Your cheapest fare will be using the MARC train or WMATA Express Bus options.  The fastest option is the Amtrak train, assuming you don't have to wait for it.

Dining:
 
The most convenient place to eat near the main Squash on Fire venue is the Upper West Side Cafe, located inside the facility. The food is excellent! It's a full-service menu for breakfast, lunch, through to dinner and is designed to be fresh and healthy.
