BRITISH SQUASH STAR NICK MATTHEW ANNOUNCES FIRST U.S. ACADEMY

Millbrook School to Host Summer Squash Academy Starting in July

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Millbrook, N.Y. - Selecting the right school for his first squash academy in the United States might have seemed like a daunting task for Nick Matthew, a three-time World Champion, but when he learned of Millbrook School, the decision was an easy one. With 8 courts, a renowned squash program that began in the 1940s, and a firm commitment to developing young men and women of character, Millbrook School proved the perfect match.

"Millbrook School promotes a set of values I find to be exemplary, and my goal is to reinforce them through the sport of squash,” said Matthew. “The goal of my Academy is to pass on my passion to a new generation of players and maybe even find some future World Champions."

Starting this July (see dates below), Matthew and his teaching staff will deliver unparalleled squash instruction and one-on-one guidance to kids aged 12-18. Campers will also have the opportunity to enjoy a range of other fun activities, like mountain biking, swimming and horseback riding. Beyond the three initial week-long summer camps in July and August, Matthew will oversee instructional clinics with the Millbrook teams throughout the year, pre-season training for the varsity teams, and exhibition matches at the Mills Athletic Center with other world ranked players.

“This exciting new relationship between Nick Matthew and Millbrook School will serve to attract top student athletes and will have a significant impact on our squash programs as we continue to enhance our competitive team sport experience for our players,” said Millbook’s Director of Racquet Sports Greg Reiss.
