AMHERST, Mass. – The Davenport Squash Courts on the campus of Amherst College will serve as host to the 2017 National Urban Squash Education Association (NUSEA) National Individual Championships on June 16-19 and the Urban Squash College Showcase on June 17.
The Urban Squash College Showcase will provide the opportunity for college coaches to connect with our member program squash coaches and college placement staff and to observe prospective student-athletes in competition. The event will run alongside our Urban Squash Individual Nationals tournament, which will have 208 high school students in attendance at Amherst. Though the Showcase runs from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m., feel free to watch the earlier matches or stay later – matches will take place from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday.
