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.
