Until this year, UVA's men's and women's club squash teams, each ranked among the Top 50 college squads in the nation, shared five courts between Slaughter Recreation Center and North Grounds. Soon, thanks to a $12.4 million gift from the Quantitative Foundation, the teams will be based at a new facility, located at the Boar's Head Sports Club.
"We hope this facility provides the opportunity for squash to grow at all levels in the community," says Jaffray Woodriff (Com '91), chairman and chief executive officer of Quantitative Investment Management.
"I think squash, more than almost any other sport, is populated with players who see the game as not only recreation or competition, but as something essential," says Grant White, who coaches the men's and women's teams. "This incredible new facility puts UVA in a position to develop and promote a wonderful sport."
