Drexel University Takes the Squash World by Storm
At Drexel University, we're constantly expanding to try new things. And that's even true of our athletics.
Take a look at one of our most recent additions to the athletic offerings at Drexel: squash.
While Drexel offers a plethora of athletics to join in on, including 18 Division I Varsity sports, squash might be getting the most buzz on campus right now.
It started with a brand-new squash court, located in Drexel's Daskalakis Athletic Center. The Kline & Specter Squash Center offers seven squash courts in total — plenty of space for all of the squash lovers on campus.
And there are plenty of them, especially with the creation of men's and women's squash teams at Drexel University.
Launched during the 2012–2013 season, Drexel's men's and women's squash teams have been nothing but dedicated to the sport, taking on college opponents across the country. And the men's team even went to the 2013–2014 National Squash Championships in Massachusetts this winter. In February they ranked 14 out of 60 colleges in the Dunlop Men's College Squash Association Team Rankings.
That's not the only proof Drexel is dedicated to this unique sport. The University has also started hosting the U.S. Open Squash Championships — for the past two years running. Working with U.S. Squash, the championships are one of the top squash competitions in the world.
Just more proof that there's something here for every student at Drexel University — and we're constantly exploring new territory when it comes to everything from research to athletics.
