MetroSquash Evanston is in-person!

In-person programming is finally kicking-off again at MetroSquash Evanston! This past weekend 16 students, staff, and volunteers came together for a squash demo for their newest 6th and 7th graders. For most, it was their first time playing squash and they have all shared how they’re excited to continue improving in the sport during their time at MetroSquash. The fun-filled morning concluded with a tour of the classroom space at the McGaw YMCA where students will participate in tutoring and academic enrichment and a lunch on the terrace of Creative Coworking, where the new MetroSquash office is. To learn more about MetroSquash and for opportunities to get involved visit www.metrosquash.org.
