Squash has existed at Taft since 1972, and, since its inception, it has always been one of the most popular sports at the school. As a result of this popularity and the dedication of several experienced coaches, the program has grown each year and now boasts three competitive boys' teams and a large group of enthusiastic intramural players.

Taft Squash strives to develop lifelong players who will leave Taft with a strong grasp of the fundamentals and a love for the sport. Further, Taft squash players are continuing their careers at the collegiate level and beyond. Our players have represented Trinity, Amherst, Tufts, Bates, Middlebury, and a host of other schools.

Taft has always occupied a place amongst the squash elite. Founder’s League competition began in 1985, and since that time Taft has been crowned Founder’s League Champion 19 times, most recently in 2011. This includes a streak of 14 straight years from 1993-2006. During this time, Taft was also New England Champion six times, most recently in 2011.
