About FairWest

Since 2008, the primary mission of the FairWest Public School Squash Association (FairWest) is to include public schools in Westchester County, NY, and Fairfield County, CT, and surrounding areas, in the long term growth of squash. FairWest looks to grow the number of junior players in the game and provide a positive team environment for all levels — whether top-ranked Gold/JCT competitors or just beginners — to play, enjoy and get better at squash.

FairWest is the largest public school league in the country and runs under the rules and regulations of US Squash, the sports governing body. The league is run by a volunteer Board of Directors and all member towns need to be represented. Also critical to the running of the league are the coaches and volunteer parents.  

Squash is a winter sport and the league runs from November to February. Some of the towns have pre and/or post-season programs depending on court availability.

High School teams consist of 7 players and Middle School teams have 5 players. In the High School Boys, Mixed league teams can field girls if required. In the High School Girls league teams can only consist of girls. All Middle School League teams are co-ed.   

In the 2019/2020 season (pre-Covid), Fairwest had about 380 High School players and 350 Middle School players participating in the league, making it one of the biggest scholastic squash leagues in the USA.

Elementary School Program

The Elementary School program was started in 2016 and is currently running in Darien, New Canaan and Greenwich. The main objective of these programs are to introduce young children to the game in a safe, positive and fun environment, so by the time they get to Middle School they know how to play and the rules of squash. There is no formal inter club activities at this level.

All programs are run by parents and  professionally coached at local squash clubs in their home town.
