Thomas E. Page


Tom Page electrified the squash world with his physicality, will to win and an unique ability to combine stunning shotmaking and relentless retrieving. Raised at Merion Cricket Club, he was a young star at Episcopal Academy and winner of the inaugural Junior Nationals BU17 division in 1972. He briefly played at Princeton—as a sophomore he won the 1977 National Singles. He captured one pro singles title in 1981, stayed ranked in the top ten for six straight seasons and was on Team USA at the 1976 and 1987 Men’s World Teams. Playing both walls on the doubles court, Page was a dominant force. He captured two National Doubles titles in 1978 and 1979 with Gil Mateer, becoming the youngest ever to win the National Doubles and then turned pro. Known for his court coverage and power backhand, Page captured five Cambridge Clubs, four Elites, three North American Opens and two Johnsons and was honored four times with the Doubles Team of the Year Award.
