Team USA Seeded Second at WSF Women's World Team Championship

Team USA will enter the 2022 WSF Women's World Team Championship—he first to be held in four years—seeded for what would be its highest finish ever of second place as the world's top teams aim to capture international squash's biggest prize, December 10-16, at the Madinaty Sports Club in Cairo, Egypt.

Team USA recorded its highest finish of fifth at the last three tournaments in 2014, 2016 and 2018, and if seedings hold will face title favorites and hosts Egypt in the final.

“It’s been four years in the making and I think we’ve all been looking forward to this event for a long time,” Amanda said. “The two extra years we were handed has only made us hungrier and has allowed us to grow as individuals, improve and get our rankings up to showcase who we are as players and the dominant force that Team USA is. To be seeded two is a huge privilege, not something we’re taking lightly and we’re really looking forward to it. We know that we can rival Egypt and to be playing in Egypt against the best team in the world is truly the biggest stage. We know it won’t be easy, but we’re excited to compete for each other, US Squash, our country and everyone who’s supported us in the process.”

The U.S. will discover its pool opponents after the draw on Wednesday, December 7. Pool play will open the tournament December 10-12 followed by the knock out stages December 14-16. Follow live streaming and more tournament updates on
