The University of Virginia Men’s and Women’s Squash Teams compete with other club and varsity teams through membership in the College Squash Association (CSA). Both teams play a full schedule of matches during the winter season and travel to the CSA National Team Tournaments in February and March.
Although technically a club sport, players on the Virginia squash teams practice and compete at a level and with facilities equivalent to those enjoyed by varsity programs. Team expectations are clearly established and those who choose to pursue squash at UVa negotiate life at the University as student athletes. The coaches, Mark Allen and Grant White, hold all of the players to the expectation that they will work and behave just like the varsity squash players at any other premier college squash program in the United States. Team members compete individually in CSA Individual Nationals and in US Squash-sanctioned events. Collectively, the University of Virginia squash program also aims to promote and grow the sport on campus and in the community. We welcome players of all skill levels.
At the end of the 2016-2017 season, the Virginia women earned a national ranking of #13 after defeating Williams College in the consolation finals of the Kurtz Cup division at WCSA Team Nationals. The UVA men concluded the ’16-’17 season with a national ranking of #18.
