Overview

Squash - Boys 2nd Team

Brooks has maintained the fine tradition of squash since the 1930s, producing hundreds of life-long players who continue to compete at the highest level. There is tremendous interest at Brooks in playing squash, with more than 50 boys comprising four teams. The top 28 players, based on a ladder system, make up the 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams, although many more get to play in matches throughout the season. Graduates have played for all the major varsity collegiate programs, most recently including Harvard, Williams, Cornell, Bowdoin, Hobart, Bates, Connecticut College and Tufts.

We are proud of the fact that even some of our most accomplished players picked up a racquet for first time at Brooks. The 2nd team is focused on player development, from the basics of racquet grip and footwork, to fitness, to the more mental and strategic aspects of the game. Video review is used extensively. We play a complete interscholastic schedule, usually traveling with the 1st team and presenting one unified program.

In addition, student athletes are fortunate to have access to the exceptional on-campus athletic facilities at Brooks. Athletes at all levels have the opportunity to use the fully equipped weight room to improve strength and conditioning, and a fully-staffed training room is available to treat injuries big and small.
