The District and National Super Champs events are an annual event and are played to identify the strongest club in the country for each grade.
Teams are composed of five players per club that are in the same grade (B, C, D, E and F for both men and women). At the District SuperChamps Eliminations, clubs in a single district play off to find the district champion in each grade. The district champion is then eligible to travel to the National Super Champs finals to play off for the national title. Teams contest ties in round-robin and/or knockout format, with the team that wins three or more matches declared the winner. This competition is a real gem! It provides an opportunity for every player, regardless of grade, to compete to be a national champion! It is a great way to improve your squash, set goals, and make lifelong friends.
