The National Doubles welcomes the support of Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), the nation’s top-ranked hospital for orthopedics for the past nine consecutive years according to U.S. News & World Report, as the 2019 title sponsor. The 2019 U.S. Squash Doubles Championships presented by Hospital for Special Surgery will be headquartered at the Apawamis Club in Rye, New York, for the first time since 2012, March 1-3.
“We are excited to be the title sponsor in support of a major sporting event taking place in Westchester and Fairfield Counties,” said Nicole Monsky, AVP of Marketing. “HSS Westchester and HSS Stamford at Chelsea Piers currently treat a large patient population from both communities especially athletes and weekend warriors wanting to perfect their game and performance.”
The tournament will engage the surrounding Westchester area and southern Connecticut with host duties shared by the Westchester Country Club and Sleepy Hollow Country Club in New York, and Round Hill Club, Field Club of Greenwich, Greenwich Country Club, New Canaan Country Club, and Chelsea Piers in Connecticut.
“We are proud to have HSS join us as title sponsor of the National Doubles,” said US Squash President & CEO Kevin Klipstein. “Their engagement helps bolster the profile of the championships. HSS’s leading, world-class reputation inspires us, and the care by HSS experienced by many in the squash community serves as a testament to the quality of their services, and keeps our athletes performing at their best and enjoying a lifetime in the sport.”
The nation’s best hardball doubles players will vie for national titles across men’s and women’s Open divisions and twelve age divisions ranging from 40+ to 80+. Men’s and women’s B draws are also available. The tournament’s regular entry deadline is Wednesday, February 20, at 12pm noon local time. Players can register here.
The National Doubles is one of the longest-running national championships dating back to 1933. Tournament proceeds will benefit Squash Haven, a Squash and Education Alliance program based in New Haven, CT.
