Girls' Squash

Varsity

Overview

Blair Academy's squash program was founded in 1993. Nearly 70 Blair students play organized squash each year, filling out competitive girls’ and boys’ varsity, junior varsity and thirds sides in the winter, as well as heavily subscribed off-season introductory and developmental programs in the spring and fall. We train and play on seven international courts in Tracy Hall. Blair is a perennial host of the New Jersey High School Championships.

Blair's girls squash team begins interscholastic competition in late November and continues through mid-February. Varsity and JV teams play a competitive schedule against other schools in the Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL), in addition to non-league teams. Our opponents include Lawrenceville, Hill, Mercersburg, Miss Porter's, Nichols School, St. Andrew's, Kent Place, Poly Prep and Pingry.

Blair seeks both experienced and inexperienced players who love the thrill of a game that combines the intellectual challenge of chess with the exhilaration of being pushed to your physical limits. Prospective students are invited to take time during their visit to see the courts and introduce themselves or contact director of Blair squash programs .
