The first World Masters held on U.S. soil arrives this weekend as 800 players from around the world descend on the McArthur Squash Center at the Boar’s Head Resort, July 29-August 4, in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Representatives from fifty-nine different nations—including a 216-player Team USA delegation—will compete across nineteen different divisions ranging from ages 35+ to 80+.
The World Masters was begun in 1976 in London for men and 1982 in Perth for women; they have been combined since 1993 in Edinburgh. 2018 marks the twenty-fifth staging of the World Masters.
Select men’s draws commence match play July 29-30, with the rest of the field joining on Tuesday, July 31. The tournament will ceremonially commence during the Opening Ceremony Monday evening.
On-site registration opens this Friday at the Boar’s Head pavilion, and all players are invited to register for the welcome reception at Three Notch’d Brewery Saturday evening.
