Squashed

The English women's squash team, after taking part in the Wolfe-Noel Tournament, an annual event alternating between England and the United States, departed New York today in 1937 aboard the RMS Queen Mary. The Americans took the cup from the British, who had won the previous year in London. England's ladies no doubt drew much interest on their way home from passengers looking for tips to improve their game on the sun deck's squash court. Though they left America without the trophy, they departed with many other tournament honors.
