It was another exciting and successful year at SQB Lawrence.
The Lawrence program has hit the ground running this fall – recruiting our newest class of sixth graders, traveling to tournaments across New England, and preparing for two of the year’s most exciting events!
Each summer, SquashBusters connects our students to life-changing opportunities to travel, learn, and play - including the Urban Squash Citizenship Tour. Check out the blog post from Kiara, SQB Boston '18, about being a part of this year's Tour!
In its sixth year, SquashBusters Lawrence is fully grown with nearly 100 students in grades 6-12, and our very first graduates are college-bound - setting the stage for future success in classes to come.
Halfway through the 2017-2018 program year, SquashBusters keeps going and growing. A brand-new team of Providence sixth-graders signs on, the Posse Foundation selects an SQB senior for the third year in a row, and Boston's varsity team heads down to Philly for their first-ever high school nationals. Meanwhile, the Derby's just around the corner!
Six years after the launch of SquashBusters Lawrence, the Eagle Tribune checks in to see the program's growth and its long-term impact on its very first students, who will be heading off to college in the fall.

The SquashBusters Lawrence MashUp, sponsored by Anbaric Development Partners, was an enormous success thanks to the efforts of the local squash and platform tennis community.
Year 22 shines especially bright for SquashBusters. We welcome 50 new 6th and 7th grade Boston and Lawrence students, elevate squash to official varsity status, and realize our Providence dream.
The SquashBusters story is one of community. We are excited to share with you our 2016-2017 Impact Report, so you can meet the students, alumni, volunteers and supporters who make the SquashBusters community a truly special one.
SquashBusters continues to expand its impact well beyond Boston and Lawrence, and setting down roots in Providence is only part of that story. SquashBusters students and alumni are making incredible journeys - many of them international. With an alum heading to Thailand as a Fulbright Scholar, two recent grads traveling to Africa and one current student giving back in Costa Rica, the program's reach is truly worldwide.
