2015 Festival of Squash
September 16-20, 2015

Join us at McArthur Squash Center (MSC) in September for our third Festival of Squash. Our first two years were a huge hit with pro players, amateur players, Boar’s Head Sports Club members, and fans of squash all over, and this year promises to be even better.

Our Festival of Squash Features 4 great tournaments running simultaneously:

Ilex Construction PSA Tournament for professional singles players on the world tour. With another increase of $10,000 in prize money (to  $35,000) we hope to see the main draw include a couple of player ranked inside the world top 15. Click here for more information on the tournament page of PSA’s website (though nothing is posted yet).
    
McArthur Squash Center Junior Silver Tournament for junior squash players. This United States Squash sanctioned event is open to junior squash players, boys and girls, from U11 through to U19. Information on the tournament page of US Squash’s website will appear soon. Closing date for entry is Wednesday, September 9.
    
McArthur Squash Center Squash Festival Tournament
for amateur adult players of all skill levels. Last year’s adult event had over 100 participants with almost everyone in the Charlottesville squash community turning out to play – we hope to have even greater participation levels this year. Information on the tournament page of US squash's website will appear soon. Closing date for entry is Wednesday September 9.
    
A fun and social hardball doubles amateur tournament Friday and Saturday only. More information will be posted shortly.
