Virginia Community Squash


Virginia Community Squash

Our mission – VCS is expanding access to the sport of squash in our communities by introducing the sport of squash to children and adults who otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to play; and by partnering with new squash court construction projects in our area. We are innovative, inclusive and intentionally diverse. We are providing children in particular (ages 10-18) with court access, squash racquets, equipment, and on-court coaching in collaboration or at no cost to the kids where possible though our innovative programs!

Expanding access to the sport of squash


Founded in 2018, Virginia Community Squash hit the ground running on the heels of VA Squash’s successful funding and construction of three new squash courts at the Downtown YMCA in Richmond, Virginia and with thriving squash programs in our area such as VA Squash’s SquashRocks!, the YMCA Squash Center’s programs and all of our local clubs, where the shoe fits we look forward to placing our participants once they become enthusiasts. Incremental funding through donations has allowed VCS to reach more than 50 children already and provide over 400 on court per-person coaching hours. We hope to reach over 100 children in our programs this year alone. Furthermore, VA Squash and the Rappahannock YMCA partnered in Fredericksburg, Virginia for great new project – “Bringing Squash in Fredericksburg in 2019”. In December our vision came to fruition when we completed the construction of the first squash court in Fredericksburg.  We are very pleased to have extended the reach of our innovative programming and created another point of access to our sport!

Our program director is John Patton. John is a US Squash certified teaching professional, and Head Coach, College of William & Mary Club Squash. Additionally, John is Vice President of VA Squash, our 501 c-3, nonprofit organization that promotes and organizes squash in central and Eastern Virginia with a track record of “providing access” going back more than 20 years.
