Squash. Education. Opportunity.


Where We Are and Where We're Going

SquashWise advances equitable access to life opportunities for Baltimore City youth through a unique model that combines the sport of squash with tutoring, college and career readiness, and long-term mentoring. In addition to competing in local/regional/national squash matches and tournaments, our students are doing amazing things in the classroom and in their careers. Each year, 100% of our high school seniors graduate on-time. Of the Class of ‘23, 85% are attending two- or four-year colleges and 15% are enrolled in career training programs or have entered the workforce. Of those alumni not currently enrolled in a postsecondary program, 95% have stable employment.

Our future is bright – SquashWise is transforming the former Greyhound bus terminal in downtown Baltimore into a youth and community center! Located at 601 North Howard Street, the SquashWise Center will be a space for both our youth programs and the Baltimore community. Building features will include:

  • 6 squash courts,
  • 3 classrooms,
  • Fitness area,
  • Meeting and administrative space,
  • Accessibility to public transit, and
  • Convenient on-site parking.

Anticipated to open in summer 2025, the facility will allow us to nearly quadruple the size of our youth programs, and will provide meaningful opportunities for community-building through memberships, clinics and community squash events. And it will do so in a historic space that holds significant meaning for many Marylanders and the City of Baltimore.
