SquashBusters challenges and nurtures urban youth - as students, athletes, and citizens - so that they recognize and fulfill their greatest potential in life. We use the sport of squash, plus college prep, academic enrichment, character-building and leadership opportunities to ensure that our students go on to live successful lives as adults.
Founded in 1996 by former squash professional Greg Zaff, SquashBusters set out to connect two seemingly different worlds by introducing the sport of squash to young people in urban public schools. By connecting these worlds, SquashBusters would provide young people with a bridge to college success, broaden their access to opportunities, and improve their health and fitness. Since its inception, SquashBusters has served over 1,000 urban youth and has grown to reach young people in Boston and Lawrence, MA and Providence, RI.
