Squash - Varsity
The squash program is a relatively new addition to Walker’s athletics, but it is one that has been growing by leaps and bounds over the last few years. With practices on campus in our beautiful Centennial Center and matches against fellow NEPSAC schools, the squash program is open to advanced players as well as those athletes interested in learning a new sport. The team regularly competes in the New England Tournament at the end of the season.
