Price-Bullington Invitational Turns Fifty
One of the great collegiate tournaments on the national squash scene turns fifty next week. The Price-Bullington Invitational will be held on 29-31 October 2021 at the Country Club of Virginia in Richmond.
In 1970 Ted Price, Salty Hawkins and other Virginian squash players founded the A. Holt Bullington Invitational. They named it after a beloved junior squash player who had died in 1969. Held originally at the Westwood Racquet Club, the event always had a draw of sixteen: in the first years it was men-only, mostly adult amateurs. “It really depended,” Price said, “upon who could be persuaded to come to a small city in a state just below the Mason Dixon Line that had only two but two very fine hard maple squash courts.”
