2019 NBCC LA Open
Jonathan Club is proud to announce that The National Breast Cancer Coalition is the charitable beneficiary of the 2019 NBCC LA Open and tournament proceeds will help further enhance their mission. NBCC is a grassroots organization dedicated to ending breast cancer through action and advocacy by linking hundreds of organizations and tens of thousands of individuals from across the country into a dynamic, diverse coalition. Their activism has generated more than $3.6 billion new dollars for breast cancer research, they monitor how research funds are spent, expand access to quality health care for all, and work to ensure that trained advocates influence all decision making that affects breast cancer. The LA Open will include a Main Draw featuring 16 of the world’s top-ranked women and a Qualifying Draw which provides up and coming pros the opportunity to compete for a spot in the Main Draw. A $25K prize purse makes the LA Open one of the top tier tournaments on the Women’s Pro Doubles Squash Tour.
We hope that you’ll partner with us to help advance women’s professional sports, the growth of squash in Los Angeles and breast cancer research by supporting the largest pro women’s doubles squash event on the West Coast.

2018 BREAKFORM|RE LA Open
The 2018 BREAKFORM|RE LA Open hosted by the Jonathan Club and organised by Head Pro Karen Kronemeyer and WSDA player Latasha Kahn was a huge success and a much welcome return to the west coast for the WSDA. The draw was an exciting mixture of new faces and old, culminating in a final that was a war of youth vs experience in which youth prevailed.
Notable new additions to the WSDA at this event were Canadian duo, Jackie Moss and Jamie Laird. Moss/Laird won through qualifying to make the semifinals defeating third seeds, Kelsey Engman and Madeline Perry along the way before narrowly falling to Pierrepont/Quick. In the bottom half of the draw, another Canadian was making her mark. Samantha Cornett paired with tour veteran Victoria Simmonds to defeat second seeds, Tina Rix Stout and Fernanda Rocha.
Thank you to everyone who supported this event. Special thanks to Karen and her team at the Jonathan Club for putting on an exceptional event.
The Jonathan Club in LA will rejoin the WSDA calendar for the 2018/19 season with a $25,000 event run by the current head pro, Karen Kronemeyer. This event will be the first ranking event of the season for the WSDA and promises to be an event not to be missed!
The LA Open main draw will include 16 of the world’s top-ranked female players. In addition to the professional tournament, there will be a Squash Doubles Professional / Amateur (Pro-Am) Tournament providing the opportunity for squash fans from all over the country to partner with one of the female pros and compete against other Pro-Am teams. The Pro and Pro-Am tournaments begins Thursday, October 25.
The event is being run in conjunction with the Jonathan Club’s month-long Breast Cancer Research initiative and SoCal Squash and will be the biggest ever pro women’s doubles squash event in Los Angeles!
