If you are interested in learning more about the challenge ladder and how to manage it in the US Squash system, please join us for coffeee and doughnuts on November 9, at 9:30-10:45 AM in the Darien Library Conference Room. Thanks.


This year the FairWest Public School Squash Association (FWPSSA) is asking us to help our middle school (grades 6-8) players obtain a US Squash “rating” before the start of the season, which is November 18.  Also, we are including our elementary school (grades k-5) players who are interested in participating in competitive play.  The rating will assist FWPSSA and team managers in pairing up players at a similar level.  Darien Squash has created a fall ladder to assist players in obtaining a US Squash rating.
