Our Squash program assists in the development of strong, confident and capable student-athletes. We develop each player’s technical ability, tactical awareness, and knowledge for the rules of the game. We value accountability, resiliency, hard work, loyalty, selflessness, and respect as we strive to create a team environment where everyone feels valued and appreciated.

Alex Pape joins the Walker’s winter coaching staff for the 2021-2022 season as the JV Squash coach. Coach Pape fell in love with squash while attending Westover School where she played on the varsity level for several years before graduating in 2012. After Westover, Pape played for the University of Edinburgh’s Women’s Club team in Scotland where she constantly got into trouble for using the US scoring rules – whoops! She has also coached squash during summer programs for boys and girls at Westover and Taft.
Coach Pape currently teaches 7th, 8th, and 9th grade English at the Montessori School of Greater Hartford and manages the student business at the program’s Millstream Farm. She is really excited to be working with both new and seasoned squash players at the JV level, and can’t wait to share her love of the sport with her team.
