In the men’s National Team Championships, teams ranked seventeenth to twenty-fourth compete for the Summers Cup in the “C” division.

The Summers Cup is named for Jack Summers. Summers, who was born in England, learned squash after he moved to Boston in 1911. During the 1920s he taught squash at the Union Boat Club, which he persuaded to allow women to play in 1925, setting the stage for the flourishing of women’s squash in Boston. He won the first United States Professionals tournament (now known as the Tournament of Champions) in 1930, successfully defending his title in 1931 and 1932 and reclaiming it in 1934. He became the first squash coach at MIT in 1930 and  guided the Engineers for the next 27 years. He was inducted into the Men’s College Squash Hall of Fame in 1990.
