Calvert Squash Pro Claims National Title at U.S. Masters

Calvert Director of Squash Patrick Bedore and his father, Thomas Bedore, made history this month at the U.S. Masters Squash Championships by becoming the first father and son to claim titles together.⁠ ⁠

On Sunday, April 7, Calvert's very own Coach Bedore earned his first national title as champion in the 35+ age group. He also helped coach his father, who claimed the champion spot in the 70+ division.
“I got to coach my dad on his way to winning the 70+ title this morning, had a little breakfast, stretched, played, and now we’re double national champions – it’s a good day for the Bedores,” Coach Bedore told U.S. Squash. “I’ve been a coach for seventeen years, and I got to become a player again. It’s been really fun. I did a lot of work to get fit and it was exciting to play my hardest squash."

"To think that we would be here with these two trophies today, I didn’t think our chances would be that good, or certainly for me. For him, it's a different story," Thomas Bedore told U.S. Squash. "I know what he’s been doing to prepare for this tournament... What Patrick put his body through to train for this tournament was impressive, but it doesn’t mean you’re going to win, because the other guys are doing the same thing."

Coach Bedore helms Calvert Squash and its three main programs: the interscholastic Middle School team, weekend and afterschool clinics (open to the entire Baltimore community), and squash camps during school breaks. Calvert Squash opened in 2022 following Bedore's arrival and the completion of Calvert's 10-court squash facility, the Luetkemeyer Athletic Center, but squash itself has a longer history on campus. It was one of several sports played early on when Calvert expanded to include a Middle School.

Today, the program is stronger than ever with Coach Bedore leading the way. Click here to learn more about Calvert Squash, a coed program suitable for all ages and skill levels. All are welcome!
