US Squash has appointed John Musto, currently the Director of Squash at Open Squash in New York City, as the chair of the US Squash Masters Committee. Musto is a multiple-time U.S. Masters champion, capturing titles in the 45+ and 50+ divisions, and he has won international titles at the British, Canadian, Czech, and Italian masters events.

The committee will support the planning and promotion of age-division masters play throughout the country, and encourage the participation of the U.S. squash community in international masters events.

“John brings tremendous experience and enthusiasm to this role,” said Kim Clearkin, US Squash Chief Program Officer. “Along with the members of the committee, we believe he will help make this the most vibrant season of masters play in many years as we build momentum into future expansion of age-division play.”

The next major masters event is the 2022 World Masters, to be held in Poland, August 21-27—the first time the championship has been held since it’s hosting at the McArthur Squash Center at the University of Virginia in 2018. A seventeen-person contingent will represent the U.S. in Poland this summer.

“Get in shape this summer,” Musto said, “now is the time to start preparing for the 2022-2023 U.S. Masters season!”
