Hyde Park based nonprofit organization MetroSquash will be able to realize their vision to become a Chicago leader in promoting academic achievement, healthy lifestyles, and access to opportunity for youth with their new 21,000 sq. ft. facility in Woodlawn. Located just around the corner from the University of Chicago’s campus, the precast structure includes seven squash courts, one doubles court and four classrooms.
The new MetroSquash Academic & Squash Center allows MetroSquash to double the number of children in its after-school lessons and summer programs to 300 from 150. The organization utilizes the racket sport, Squash, to help Chicago Public School students with athletic and academic performance.
