As many of you are doubtless aware, Austin now has 2 new international courts at the new Lifetime Fitness facility in NW Austin (near 620 and Parmer).

Looks to be stale with last entry in 2005 – anyone know if there are plans to keep it updated?

Squash Links – updated

At the bottom right of these pages you’ll find a “Squash Links” page.
I just finished doing a pass through the Intercollegiate and USSRA sections.
Links to all the sites are now up-to-date, and I have noted those sites that no longer exist, or a “stale”.

I have left links to a number of the sites here on the blog.

Entry flyer (new PSA 11 point scoring will be used)

So why did Houston switch to PSA scoring for the City Championship?
Does it make the matches go any faster? Is it common for people in Houston to use the PSA scoring system?

Beat the USSRA Fee Increase (posted:

Renew or join the USSRA now and
beat the $10 fee increase, scheduled to kick in on July 1st,

If you are currently a member of
the USSRA and you renew now or before July 1st, 2006, your USSRA membership expiration
date will get extended by one full year. For example, if your
current expiration date is Oct 2006, your new expiration date
will become Oct 2007.

Seattle appears to be taking the pending membership dues increase seriously – get everyone re-upped before then.
