2012 NCS FISHER CUP LEAGUE PLAYER INDIVIDUAL CHAMPIONSHIPS 

At the conclusion of the Winter NCS League season, the Fisher Cup Championship determines the top individual players among NCS members who have participated in each division (Premier and Divs. 2, 3, 4 and 5).  There will also be at least two women's divisions, and that will have its own sign up page.  This tournament is FREE!

DIVISIONS

The tournament will be sanctioned by US SQUASH and managed at the website ussquash.com.  Draws will correspond as closely as possible to the limits of each NCS Division.

FORMAT

Eligibility for play in the Fisher Cup will be limited to 16 players per division.  These players must have played in three or more matches in a division during the season to be eligible for that division’s draw.  If more than 16 players wish to play, the 16 players with the highest ratings will be selected, with one exception.  If no players on a team were to otherwise qualify, then a spot in the draw may be open to a player from that team.  That spot would be open to one of the team’s top two rated playoff eligible players.

EVENT HISTORY

The Fisher Cup was established in memory of Geff Fisher, a squash entrepreneur and visionary who died suddenly and tragically in the early 1990s.  In the mid-1970s he created the first squash junior development programs in Washington, DC.  Geff was a key developer of commercial squash in the area.  He and his wife Lonnie managed the Courts Royal Club in Merrifield, VA, a popular venue for league players.  He served on the board of NCS for many years (including a term as President) and he was instrumental in creating the League we have enjoyed since the mid-1970s.  Geff was a Squash Teaching Professional first at Merrifield, then later at the Regency Sport and Health Club in Mclean where he started the Madeira School squash program.  Geff is survived by his wife Lonnie, his business partner.  Squash in the nation's capital would not be where it is today without Geff's vision, dedication, leadership and determination.  Geff embodied the NCS principles of "Spirit, Service and Sacrifice".  In 1992, NCS renamed its annual Squash Championships the "Fisher Cup" in honor of Geff and Lonnie and the important contributions they made to squash in the region.
