About


 

NY Squash organizes leagues, tournaments and events for amateur and professional squash players in the greater New York metropolitan area.

 

Our Mission

NY Squash's mission is to further the development, progress, and establishment of the game of squash in the New York area. NY Squash seeks both to introduce new players to the game, and to inspire current players to excellence, fair play, and healthy competition.

Our Background

Founded in 1924, we are a not-for-profit organization run by a volunteer Board of Governors.  We are the designated district branch for U.S. Squash, the sport's national governing body, and are one of the largest player-run squash organizations in the world.
