Squash

The sport of Squash is a dynamic and physical sport and The Lawn’s professional courts have hosted both Mens and Junior champions. Creating world-class players is also at the core of The Toronto Lawn Tennis Club’s squash program.

Courts

Competitive play and world-class tournaments make The Lawn’s squash program one of the most competitive in Canada. Three glass-backed international courts all located adjacent to our Player’s Bar and a multi-coloured doubles court, means rarely will you not have an audience for your matches.

Competition

Our squash players are not only some of the finest in the city, but many have won at the provincial, collegiate, national, and international levels.

At the junior level, our top players have included Julien Gosset, the 2017 Ontario Junior Champion, Alexi Gosset, a 2014 National Championship finalist, Jack Greenwood, the 2013 Ontario U17 Junior Champion and Ella Baldwin, the 2015 Ontario Junior Championships U13 Champion.

Many of our top juniors have gone on to play at top NCAA and USports schools like Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, Cambridge, Oxford, Vassar, St. Lawrence, Amherst, McGill, Queen's, Western and University of Toronto.

These up-and-coming junior and collegiate players are able to compete against some of the top names in Canadian squash too, as players like Nick Sachvie, Marnie Baizley, Graham Ryding, Seanna Keating, and Shahier Razik all call The Toronto Lawn Tennis Club home.
