Brooks squash is about creating life-long players; athletes passionate about the sport, determined to improve their game, and dedicated to the highest levels of sportsmanship. We have welcomed players of all levels to the program, bringing already skilled players to a higher level, while introducing novices to an exciting and challenging sport. Our 1st team has a good mix of players who learned to play squash for the first time at Brooks, and those who have been playing prior to Brooks. In fact, our 2018 New England Champion team had six of its top eight players learn the game at Brooks. Many of our team continue to play at a collegiate level.

The Danforth Squash and Rowing Center is the site of 10 state-of-the-art courts, equipped with scoreboards, two permanent on-court cameras, two ball machines, and a taping system.

There is tremendous interest at Brooks in playing squash. Approximately 40 girls comprise four teams. Our players are often multi-sport athletes who learn the game here at Brooks and improve rapidly. The top 18 players, based on a ladder system, make up the 1st and 2nd teams. Each team practices daily for 60 to 90 minutes. The top two teams play a full interscholastic dual meet schedule, and the top seven players play in the US Squash High School Nationals in February, and at the end of the season, compete in the New England Championships.

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.
