SquashBusters has been in full swing this fall - a senior earns well-deserved recognition, our seventh graders join the team, the class of 2019 reflects on their time with SQB, the staff continues to look for ways to make our programs even better, and some alumni hit the courts!
On February 10, SquashBusters Providence officially welcomed its first team of sixth-graders into the SQB community. Check out the Providence Journal's coverage of the exciting event!

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.
Thanks to corporate sponsors, world-class professionals, and our incredible fundraising players, the 2017 MFS SquashBusters Derby was once again record-breaking success, bringing in more than $1.3 million in support of SquashBusters' programs.
The SquashBusters family continues to grow and includes not only students and alumni, but supporters, volunteers, staff and community partners as well.

Plus, see how our students fared at Urban Team Nationals in Philadelphia.
The fourth annual SquashBusters MashUp was a huge success, raising over $285,000 for the program in Lawrence, thanks to sponsors Anbaric and Dental Dreams, all of the squash and paddle pros, and our incredible fundraisers.
A new year is underway at SquashBusters, and our students are already achieving big things on and off the court.
