Education: Squash-the Key to College

Squash is a sport that is similar to racquetball, but there are several differences. The court is wider, it has out-of-bounds areas, racquets are longer, and the ball is smaller. The Cincinnati Squash Academy intends to use the power of this sport to serve highly-motivated low-income children, providing them with the opportunity to travel to squash tournaments and engage in community service. This year, 40 students will receive academic tutoring while learning to play squash three days a week at the Emanuel Community Center. According to the National Urban Squash and Education Association, 95% of the students who remain in urban squash programs attend college. This high percentage is attributed to the discipline that the sport requires, among other factors.
