McWIL has a proud history of court installation. However, once courts are built McWIL has no control over maintenance and operation of the courts. It can therefore be counter-productive for all parties to refer to a list of installations when the result might be the potential client visits a facility that is poorly kept, or where repair is necessary but not addressed. In addition, we pride ourselves on always improving the work we do, with the logical conclusion that the most recent installations are the ones that would properly represent what we would build for a new client.
Illustrated here are some of our installations, and we will be happy to provide more information on a case-by-case basis.
Through a special partnership with ILLUSTRATE MY DESIGN, based in Alexandria, Virginia, McWIL is able to provide customers with the ability to see their design before they commit to the cost and effort of building. These renderings can also be valuable tools for raising the critical financial needs for a project.
In addition, renderings can be useful for architects and builders, as well as customers, to understand both the base construction required for courts in order to result in first-class installations.
A world-class squash court is the result of first-class materials installed properly by technicians who are committed to the customer enjoying a long-term and satisfying experience with the courts. As holder of World Squash Federation Complete Court Accreditation status, McWIL Squash has assembled a top-quality selection of materials to create the finest squash courts.
We built six squash courts, including two all-glass squash courts at Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn, NY.
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.

Perhaps the most exciting benchmark in recent McWIL history is the completion of the world’s first all-glass hardball doubles court at the National Squash Academy in Toronto. A long-time dream of doubles guru Gary Waite, the plan is for the new court to give a tremendous boost to the growing popularity of the doubles game, including the ability to video and televise the game from all angles.
