Urban Squash

A friend wrote a piece for the Village Voice about a squash program that’s helping NYC kids get to prep schools:

He frets over how to maximize the benefits of the exchange between his nontraditional players and the old-school squash world. He doesn’t just want to bring urban kids to get whipped by kids who have been exposed to the sport longer. And he also doesn’t want those urban kids to be intimidated by their new surroundings. 

The core of the article is the story of a so-so student who got inspired to pick up his grades and is now a star player at a New England prep school.
