The Space

The Center

When completed, the Manhattan Community Squash Center will be the only squash specific facility in New York City.  The space will consist of five squash courts, changing facilities with showers and all the amenities you would expect, an area to warm up, cool down and stretch, lockers and laundry facilities and a lounge/cafe to socialize with your friends.  

The Building

We had been looking for eight years for a building like this and finally found it: The Engineering Society Building of New York.  This fine building was once home to the finest engineers in the city.  Household names like Tesla and Edison.  Squash may not seem like the most immediate way to celebrate these heroes, but our facility is comprised of the most modern equipment, the latest technology and as any squash player will tell you, it takes extremely hard work and high degrees of precision to win a point.  It turns out that hard work and precision are hallmarks of engineers as well.  

The Location

If you replaced a dart board with a map of Manhattan, The Manhattan Community Squash Center would be the bullseye.

The Architect

Rich Furman has been a squash player for almost as long as he’s been an architect. He plays most days and is also a squash coach.  When he’s not playing or coaching, he designs the most spectacular places. He is the natural partner for The Squash Center’s first location.

Help Support Manhattan
Community Squash Center

We are not yet fully funded.  You can help us in several ways:

  1. Become a member
  2. Tell your friends you joined (or at least tell them about us if you are still on the fence).
  3. We will be selling overpriced SWAG on the site which will get you goodies, a tax deduction and a general feeling of well-being.
  4. Donate something that we can sell on our site.
  5. Become a Founding Member – for more details, click the link below.
  6. For those of you who are really excited, spend some of that hard-earned wealth on naming a court after your hero, a loved one, or yourself.  There are other naming opportunities as well.  My favorite? The Bar (code-named Court 6).
