For the first time in nearly three decades, Minneapolis and St. Paul play host to the National Doubles, March 5-8, at Boast Squash, the Commodore Squash Club and Minneapolis Club in Minnesota.
More than 200 players on 102 teams will compete across fifteen divisions with twelve national champions set to be crowned in the Men’s and Women’s Open divisions, Men’s 40+-75+ and Women’s 40+ and 55+.
The men’s Open division sees three past champions return in search of another national title–six-time champion Preston Quick, 2017 champion Graham Bassett and 2010 champion Dylan Patterson. Bassett & Quick reunite their 2017 title-winning partnership, while Patterson enters with SDA world No. 4 James Stout, who will be in search of his first title.
The women’s Open division guarantees a first-time national champion. Sisters Elani & Lume Landman enter the draw as the title favorites with both players ranked in the WSDA top ten. WSDA-ranked Rachel Scherman also enters the draw with Phoebe Trubowitz.
The National Doubles celebrates the vibrant squash doubles community in the twin cities. Boast Squash, Minneapolis’ newest squash club, is one of the nation’s only clubs with two doubles courts in addition to six singles courts.
The twin cities previously hosted the National Doubles in 1993, 1972, 1964 and 1957.
