We built 3 new squash courts at Hogg Middle School in Houston, Texas. Hogg Middle School is the first middle school in the U.S. to house squash courts. Hogg is also the first public school in the U.S. to offer squash as a PE credit!

These new squash courts are the new home for Mission Squash’s urban squash program. Mission Squash is an urban youth development program that combines academic enrichment with athletic training in the sport of squash. The program aims to give youth from underprivileged homes the opportunity to make a better future for themselves by staying in school, graduating and aspiring to college, while at the same time improving their health and fitness through the game of squash.

McWIL has worked with Fiberesin Industries for nearly two decades to supply and install panels that are both the highest density in the court panel market and the only panel fabricated with a melamine thermally-fused playing surface. The Fiberesin panel is installed using a hidden spline attachment (see photo at left) and is available in a moisture-resistant version should high humidity be a problem. The photo at right illustrates without resorting to technical explanation the significantly higher density of the Fiberesin panel (middle) compared to competitors. Unique to McWIL Squash is a matte surface that conforms to WSF specifications for low glare play walls.
