Metro Central YMCA Women’s Squash Open House

On Tuesday, June 20th, 17 female squash players climbed three flights of stairs to take over both courts at the Metro Central YMCA on Grosvenor Street.

Elka Markus and Jen Halpern kicked things off with an inspiring high-level exhibition match. This was followed by a quick warm up, drills, and a fun round robin that kept us all moving.

There was such great energy and enthusiasm that we went ahead and planned a repeat event at the West End YMCA on College in July. Details will be announced in a future mailing.

Special thanks are due to Lynsey Yates and Squash Ontario for co-organizing and to Sareen Sanassian and the YMCA for hosting an awesome squash event!
