Go Marnee and Kirina!

Phenomenal Staff Highlights! Over the summer, Kirina and Marnee led 6 weeks of virtual summer programming for 36 students. Though online, students received enrichment kits that included their squash racquets, yoga mats, resistance bands, notebooks, art supplies, STEM supplies, and books. Each of the weeks was themed and allowed the students to connect with their MetroSquash teammates while learning something new. Kirina and Marnee also remained committed to supporting our students' families by connecting with them weekly to check-in on their wellness and the need for support! #ThisIsAfterschool

Our Story

MetroSquash’s ultimate goal is to help our students become healthy adults with economic and social stability. Since our founding in 2005, we have worked to help our students succeed both on and off the court. Our proven model continues to strengthen as the 2019-2020 school year brings our fourth class of college graduates. This past year we served over 400 students.

MetroSquash serves students from 5th grade through college graduation. Student dedicate a minimum of 10 hours per week to the program and their time is equally divided between academic support and the sport of squash.

Do you have any squash courts inside your actual S Cottage Grove venue? If so, how many please? Thanks!
Chicagoland lost a local legend.
I don't know where to start... My 12 year old twins have been going to MetroSquash for a year now and the experience has been tremendously blessing awesome!! :-) My boys LOVE LOVE LOVE IT THERE. Riley, Jas, Julie and Tron have been great. All of the staff for that matter are the best. The staff really cares about the well being of the children because it is not only a job for them but a career that they are passionate about. I thank you all. During this quarantine my children had no computers to use so Ismail delivered laptops that Riley prepared for delivery and Riley made sure that we were doing good by calling us weekly. I love MetroSquash. The children are prepared for high school from the tutoring program that is offered. I can go on and on and on and on about MetroSquash. Thank you staff at MetroSquash South Chicago. I love you guys. MetroSquash has been a total blessing from God to my family.
We've just added MetroSquash to our global db of squash venues 👍🏻 https://squash.courts.live If you know of more squash venues in Illinois or anywhere else, you can suggest them via the free #squashplayers app. Thank you! 🏆
