MetroSquash’s new 21, 000 square foot METROsquash Academic and Squash Center in Woodlawn, Illinois, broke ground Thursday with some help from Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

The facility will have 7 singles squash courts, 1 doubles court, 4 state of the art classrooms, a computer lab, locker rooms, and administrative space and it will not only be the largest stand-alone squash facility in the Midwest, but will also serve as a safe, secure, and permanent home for the METROsquash program.
