ABOUT

IMG_0168_edited_edited_edited.png
 We started Corner Squash (formerly Smart Squash) in 2013 with a vision of bringing the best of the Egyptian and the Western squash styles to the junior squash community. With this combined philosophy, we create programs for elite athletes that emphasize squash technique and fitness, while fostering a mental toughness that produces well-rounded players on and off the court.
