The National Intercollegiate Squash Racquets Association (NISRA), a precursor to the Men’s College Squash Association, first held a national individual tournament in 1932 and first awarded a national team title, based on dual-match records, in 1942. In 1956, they decided to add a team component to the individual tournament. Each school was allowed to enter up to four players in the tournament, and each player earned a point for every round they gained in the main and consolation draws. The team with the most points at the end won the team trophy. In 1969, the NISRA changed the format so that up to six players players from each team could compete. They added a third division to the tournament, and only two players per team were allowed in each division. The NISRA made another, more sweeping change in 1989, doing away with what had become known as the Six-Man Trophy altogether and creating separate team and individual tournaments held on different weekends, the format used today.

The records below list the winners of the team component of the national individual tournament. From 1956 to 1968, teams competed with four-player teams, and from 1969 to 1988 they competed with six-player teams.
