In the new structure, the U.S. Open spans eight action-packed days of squash, including returning special events Character in Sports Day on October 9 , Women in Sports Day on October 10, the Hall of Fame Luncheon on October 13 and a new special event, Drexel Day on October 7.
Outside of the U.S. Open, the greater Philadelphia area will host a busy weekend of squash competition spanning October 5-8, including the Arlen Specter Pennsylvania Junior Championships, and Intercollegiate Squash Doubles Championships. The U.S. Skill Level Championships will take place during finals weekend October 13-14.
