Carol Weymuller Open Tournament Records

Carol Weymuller "Hall
of Fame"

Carol WeymullerThe
Carol Weymuller Tournament has been held in New York since 1975. The tournament
began as a hardball tournament called The Heights Casino Women’s Open.
In 1980 the tournament was renamed the The Carol Weymuller Open when Carol
and her husband Fred Weymuller moved to Rochester, New York to honor her
contribution to women’s squash in New York.

In 1993 the
Carol Weymuller became a WISPA softball event when Alicia McConnell became
the co-head pro at Heights Casino.

In 2002 the
USSRA and Heights Casino came to an agreement to elevate the tournament
to the US Women’s Open and renamed it the Weymuller US Open to honor the
original event creator Carol Weymuller.
