The largest U.S. Skill Level Championships in six years with 130 players competing in nine divisions will take place alongside the Delaware Investments U.S. Open finals Saturday and Sunday at Drexel University and Racquet Club of Philadelphia.
Today, at a special luncheon before the semifinals of the Delaware Investments U.S. Open, Paul D. Assaiante, Norman B. Bramall and Jane Austin Stauffer were inducted into the United States Squash Hall of Fame.
The third-annual Character in Sports Day, presented by the Paul Miller Auto Group at the Delaware Investments U.S. Open, featured a festive and emotional reception. Throughout the past 112 years, US Squash has celebrated character: courtesy, fair play, graciousness and an abiding sense of respect and fellowship with opponents. Because of the uniqueness of squash—unlike most other racquet sports, squash opponents physically share the same space—sportsmanship is a core value of the game.
Today SquashSmarts hosted its annual day at the Delaware Investments U.S. Open. Seventy team members came to the Daskalakis Athletic Center at Drexel. They played a team tournament, with each student playing one-point matches, on the ASB GlassCourt.
