What is Squash – An indoor racquets sport similar to racquetball, and one of the most dynamic and fastest growing sports in the US, squash is exploding at the junior level.
The Ivy League and other top colleges place a strong emphasis on their squash programs and often give consideration to applicants who play squash. Former captains Jacqueline Barnes, Samantha Zambri and Jeremy Barnes have all gone on to play squash at college level. Jacqueline is the former Dartmouth #1 player and captain, Jeremy Barnes is on the Drexel roster (#7 team in the country).
Named by Forbes magazine as the top ranked healthiest sport, squash is a great cardio workout that also provides ideal training for other sports. A lifetime sport, squash is a fun activity the whole family can participate in.
