Mixed Doubles Marks Fifty Years in New York City

The U.S. Mixed Squash Doubles Championships marks its fiftieth iteration since the inaugural tournament in 1969 this weekend at the University Club of New York, New York Athletic Club and the Heights Casino in New York City.

Twenty-four teams are set to compete across four divisions: Open, B, 40+ and 50+. Match play begins Friday, April 27. Follow Club Locker live scores throughout the weekend on ussquash.com/live-2.

2011 Open champion Emily Lungstrum enters the 2018 draw as the top seed with first-time partner and SDA pro, Bobby Burns. Lungstrum is the only past champion entered in the eight-team main draw, with the two seeds predicted to face two seeds Shirin Kaufman & Hamed Ancari in the final.

Dawn Gray & Thomas Harrity return to defend their 50+ title as the top seeds. Should Gray & Harrity successfully defend their title, it would mark Gray’s second and Harrity’s fifth.

A new champion is guaranteed in the 40+ division with four teams set to challenge each other for the title in a round robin.
