The New Canaan Squash community was excited to partner with CitySquash last week. CitySquash is a not-for-profit after school enrichment program based in the Bronx that helps talented and motivated young people from economically disadvantaged households fulfill their academic, athletic and personal potential. New Canaan Squash players and families donated 43 boxes of food and supplies to CitySquash players and their families. New Canaan Squash remains committed to outreach in our communities and we look forward to being on the squash courts soon with our friends at CitySquash.
New Canaan Squash is very proud to announce that Tara Chugh, a senior at New Canaan High School, has been awarded All-American Recognition by US Squash. This Recognition is awarded to players who are selected by their league for participation on a High School Scholastic Team at the highest level. Tara was selected by the FairWest Public School Squash Association as the top female player from the 2019-2020 season. Tara played #1 for New Canaan High School throughout the 2019-2020 season and had an incredible 16-0 record in the FairWest League. In addition to her participation on the NCHS team, Tara played in many US Squash tournaments around the country and was ranked 25th in the GU17 bracket and has won 199 singles matches in her career. Tara is an incredible competitor and New Canaan Squash was lucky to have her as a role model both on and off the court. Congratulations to Tara on being an All-American!
