Intercollegiate Doubles to Be Held Alongside U.S. Open

The 2019 U.S. Intercollegiate Squash Doubles Championships will be held alongside the FS Investments U.S. Open for the ninth year in Philadelphia at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, October 4-6.

There is no entry fee, and all participants receive free General Admission tickets to the U.S. Open, October 5-6. Players must compete with a partner from the same school. Intercollegiate doubles champions receive automatic free entry into the 2020 National Doubles in Twin Cities, Minnesota, March 5-8, 2020.

The fortieth edition of the tournament, the world’s only annual collegiate doubles event, was first played in 1942. The tournament will be again presented by the U.S. Jesters Club.

Last year, with only a men’s division in action, the U.S. Naval Academy maintained their doubles dominance with Senen Ubina and Michael Kacergis claiming a fifth title in six years for Navy after overcoming fellow Midshipman Jonathan Lentz and James Kjorlien in the final. The championship was Ubina’s third of his career and his second with a partner named Kacergis. Younger brother Michael earned his first intercollegiate doubles title, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Billy.

Entry is now available for men’s, women’s and mixed divisions on the 2019 Intercollegiate Doubles tournament page.
