Why Donate?

You may think to yourself, why would I donate to a squash center, and we'd like to surprise you with some answers.

  • We're a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to make squash available to the general public. We do this because squash is the world's healthiest sport (makes you the fittest and strongest), and at the same time, teaches character and personality - the way that you have to interact with your opponent, in what can be stressful situations. (Who knew chasing a little rubber ball could be so important!?)
  • Our budget to open Manhattan Squash is $3 million.
  • This money has to come from you, a community member. We have no investors.
  • We don't make profits, 100% of the money we generate is put back into making squash more accessible.
  • We make sure that we have discounts for people who can't afford it - whether because they are recent graduates or because you make less than $115,000 a year and we offer scholarships to kids who have less resources - we offer everyone a plan they can afford.
  • We are reversing a trend: squash courts have been closing. Help reverse that trend: Support Manhattan Squash. Make a donation now.

Other Ways to Support your Manhattan Community Squash Center

There are a variety of ways that you can support Manhattan Squash (that’s our nickname for those in the know).  Here we’ll focus on the biggest two.  Becoming a Founding Member or providing Landmark Support.

Founding Memberships

Founding Members get many benefits.  There are three options listed here for 5 years, 7 years or 15 years.  But if you’d like to know what an option would look like for a number of years outside this range, please drop us a line at info@TheSquashCenter.org and we’d be delighted to chat.  In all cases, you get the following benefits:

  • Knowing that you have helped support the first new and publicly accessible squash facility built in Manhattan this century.
  • “Unlimited” membership to the facility for the length of time you select (today this is priced at $299 per month – details can be found here.)
  • Priority and guaranteed access to Peter Nicol’s world famous Junior training program: the Nicol Champions’ Academy (NCA).  
  • We are expecting to be able to offer lockers and laundry service which will be included in your membership.  If you’d like to sign up, please do, it’s on us.
  • A selection of the best swag we can find.
  • VIP tickets to our opening festivities.
  • A generous selection of guest passes so that you’ll always be able to host your friends at your facility.
  • A tax deduction that will be equal to approximately half of the amount you donate.

Landmark Support

Landmark support is just that.  It’s big.  It’ll last as long as we do.  And it’s a Landmark.  Here are some options.  Other custom opportunities also exist.

Court Naming Rights

Help us by financing a court.  You can name it after your best friend, your hero, your family, yourself, or you can be a ghost and just know that you’ve helped grow the sport of squash and make it more accessible to the general public.  For more details, please contact us directly.

Cafe/Bar Naming Rights

We don’t have a liquor permit yet, so this may be more of a cafe than a bar, but one way or the other, it could have your name on it!  This is our team’s favorite naming opportunity.  It’ll be the social nexus of the facility.  You’ll be able to see every court from the screens in the lounge.  And it’ll be the place where we argue about whether that was a let, a stroke or no let, and how we really should have won that match, if only…
