Meadow Mill Athletic Club 25th Celebration 2017
31-Oct to 04-Nov, Baltimore, Usa, $5k

Binnie triumphs in Meadow Mill

The Meadow Mill Athletic Club Pro Tournament concluded on Saturday with a final in which Jamaica's Chris Binnie  prevailed over Baltimore based Syed Bukhari of Pakistan, who had surprised everyone steadily and clinically working through the qualifiers and main draw.

In front of a packed house, Binnie using his height and reach was able to match the guile and quickness of Syed in what was an entertaining and physical match up. This match was the conclusion of a full week of squash and social activities in celebration of Meadow Mill Athletic Club’s 25th Anniversary.

The turnout at the Party on the Friday night was a fitting tribute to Nancy Cushman who over many years of club ownership and throughout her playing career has been one of the most inspirational and positive influences in the game. This was acknowledged by Kevin Klipstein of US Squash, who presented Nancy with The President’s cup, making Nancy only the second woman to have won this prestigious award.

Meadow Mill Athletic Club members and Baltimore’s squash community have been delighted to host the PSA event and look forward to perhaps doing it again next year!

If last night’s quarter finals were any indication of what is to come, then tonight’s semifinals should be an outstanding appetizer to the Meadow Mill Anniversary Celebration as over 350 people gather to watch the semi’s and then slide into a party with live music great restaurant tastings and free flowing beer and wine.

Last night, two of the quarter matches went to five with Aqeel Rehman (Aus) coming back from 2-0 against Reuben Phillips (Eng) and Hamza Bukhari (Pak) “squeaking” it out in the fifth over Leandro Romiglio (Arg). Christophe Binnie (Jam) won comfortably against Anthony Graham (Eng) and Robertino Pezzota (Arg) won against Vincent Droesbeke (Fra).

Awards were given out last night at the MSSRA evening by Bob Everd, on behalf of the MSSRA - An Outstanding Achievement Award for Peter Heffernan and The W. Stewart Brauns Jr. Award to Jim Hense and the Presidents Cup was presented by Kevin Klipstein from US Squash to Nancy Cushman the owner of Meadow Mill Athletic Club. (Picture shows Nancy Cushman thanking everyone).

More pictures and stories to come from the semis and the finals and the Party!

Down to the Quarter in Baltimore

As the Meadow Mill Athletic Club Pro tournament enters quarter final stage, things are shaping up marvelously for the culminating stages.

Pictured are Chris Binnie and Aqeel Rehman this morning preparing for tonight’s matches. Both have been most complimentary about the tournament and are enjoying the hospitality of both Meadow Mill Athletic Club and Baltimore.

This tournament has been staged along with the Meadow Mill 25th Anniversary Celebration which has consisted of a Gold Junior Tournament and an MSSRA awards evening as well as a party on Friday night at the semifinals which is sold out with many disappointed members and squash enthusiasts left clamoring for a ticket for the Semis and the Party!

Tonight’s awards include An Outstanding Achievement Award for Peter Heffernan, The W. Stewart Brauns Jr. Award to Jim Hense and the The Presidents Cup being presented to Nancy Cushman the owner of Meadow Mill Athletic Club.
