The Hotchkiss School Girls Varsity Squash



At Hotchkiss, we are committed to, and passionate about, our work both on and off the court. Each year we strive to create an environment in which every level of player can thrive. Whether you have been playing in competitive tournaments for years, or whether you are planning on picking up a squash racket for the first time when you get to Hotchkiss, we have a program that is appropriate, challenging, and rewarding for you. Above all else, we value inclusion, trust, and respect.

-- Tyler Gardner, Head Coach, Girls Varsity Squash


The team has won back-to-back Founders League titles in 2016 and 2017. In addition, in 2016 the team placed tenth at Nationals in Division I, and fifth in the New England Class A tournament to close out the season.

Each year, we look to build on our previous season's successes, and we are eager and excited to speak with you about your interest in Hotchkiss Squash. We are always looking for more players to join our team.


Within our 212,000 square foot Forrest E. Mars, Jr. Athletic Center we have eight international squash courts with a large viewing area. The facility also boasts a fully staffed training room, a fitness center, and numerous locker rooms and team rooms.
