Lessons taught by a world champion squash player are now available at the RAC on the Fairfax Campus of George Mason University. Hussein El Noor, the instructor, has over 30 years of experience playing and teaching the sport. In 2012, he was the Egypt and Saudi Arabia National Team Coach, he won the Seiko Open in 1985, and he won the Jeddah and Air France Open in 1982.

Squash is an indoor racquet sport played on an enclosed court, similar to racquetball. Once the ball is served, the players alternate hitting the ball against the wall. The ball remains in play until it bounces twice or goes out of bounds. The first player to 11 points wins the game.

Like many sports, squash has numerous benefits. Aside from the many health benefits, one unique aspect of this sport is that it bolsters college applications. Admissions experts agree that its prestige and seldomness within the United States make it a unique edition to any college application, as many highly competitive, and Ivy League schools have squash teams and appreciate diverse extracurriculars.

This wonderful opportunity is available to anyone in the community. Contact the RAC to register today to get your chance to learn with a world renowned instructor!
