We organize competitions and events throughout the year that give urban squash players from all over the country the opportunity to meet, compete, and make friends. NUSEA’s marquee events of the year are the Urban Team Nationals and the Urban Individual Nationals. Though primarily squash competitions, both events also include academic components.
The Urban Team Nationals, first played at the SquashBusters facility in Boston in 2004, brings together teams of 5 players in the U13, U15, U17, and U19 divisions, and draws more than 400 urban squash players from programs around the country. The event rotates annually between the home facilities of NUSEA member programs.
Urban Team Champions
The Urban Individual Nationals, first played at the Groton School in 2003, brings together urban squash players from around the country to compete in the U13, U15, U17, and U19 divisions. From 2006-2013, the tournament was hosted solely by Williams College in Williamstown, MA. Starting in 2014, the tournament included competition at Amherst College. Students now compete and stay at Williams and Amherst Colleges.
Urban Individual Champions
The Midwestern Urban Championships was played for the first time in July 2013 at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. This tournament marks the first major urban squash championships to be held outside the Northeast, recognizing the growing strength of our member programs in the region.
Urban Midwest Championships
Throughout the year, NUSEA teams up with its member programs to plan one-day regional tournaments. These tournaments provide opportunities for programs to get together and students to compete and travel. Tournaments take place at school campuses, such as Yale University, Trinity College, University of Minnesota, and Kenyon College.
