Women Squash Pros Return
The top 16 professional women’s squash doubles teams are to play in the Women’s Squash Doubles Association’s final tournament of the season, the second annual Wilson Cup, at the Elmaleh/Stanton courts at the Southampton Recreation Center this weekend, beginning today and ending Sunday.
The group will include the organization’s Australian-born founder, Narelle Krizek, and the English-born Suzie Pierrepont. The two have won three tournaments this year, the most recent being the Metrosquash tourney in Chicago in May where they defeated Dana Betts and Stephanie Hewitt 15-8, 15-7, 15-7 in the final.
The tournament, which will include pro-ams, is to benefit Southampton Squash Inc., which offers court time to youngsters who otherwise would not be able to play the fast-paced, four-wall sport.
The planned Montauk Playhouse aquatics center is to benefit from half-mile, one-mile, and two-mile ocean swims in Montauk Saturday. It’s the fifth year the event has been held. Each of the eastbound swims, according to a flier, is to have adult and youth divisions.
Registration at Kirk Park Beach is to be held from 6 a.m. The two-miler is to begin there at 7. The one-mile competitors are to enter the water at Atlantic Terrace after the two-milers pass, and the half-miler is to begin at the Ditch Plain cliffs after all the other racers pass.
The bracket bash party for the Travis Field memorial softball tournament is to be held Sunday from 7 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Amagansett. The tournament is to be played at the Terry King ball field on Abraham’s Path from next Thursday through Aug. 4.
