Throughout the 111-year history of US Squash, the association has celebrated the core values of squash: courtesy, fair play, graciousness and an abiding sense of respect and fellowship with opponents.

At a special reception for the second-annual Character in Sports Day, October 15, US Squash will honor Orla O’Doherty, the recent winner of the Feron’s Wedgwood Sportsmanship Trophy. The Robert W. Callahan Sportsmanship Award, inaugurated last year for a deserving man and named in honor of the late Princeton coach, will also be presented to a surprise winner.

In addition, all past sportsmanship awardees will be honored, including the DeRoy Junior Sportsmanship Award, the Feron’s Wedgwood Sportsmanship Trophy, the Men’s Sportsmanship Award and the collegiate individual (Skillman and Richey Awards) and collegiate team (Sloane and Chaffee Awards).

Following the Character in Sports reception, attendees will proceed upstairs to watch the second night of quarterfinal matches at the Delaware Investments U.S. Open. Reserve your tickets now for this special night, with guests from around the world honoring the very best about the game of squash.
