There will be no SQUASH BOARDING CAMP in 2020

Led by McCallie Squash Coach Richard Millman, campers play Squash at the “Scenic City Squash” facility, while campers live at McCallie School. McCallie facilities include air-conditioned dorm rooms, 14 indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a Sports & Activities Center (SAC), outdoor pool, and full dining facilities. The SAC contains an indoor pool, four basketball courts, a 200m indoor track, table tennis, air hockey, a viewing room and game room. Campers will have use of these facilities during free time. All free-time activities will be well-supervised by our staff.

Richard Millman, a world-renowned champion squash professional, wants to share his love for the game by teaching local students to play squash, which he says is not just a sport, but a lifestyle.

Since moving to the United States in 1993, Millman has coached everywhere from Southern California to Charleston, S.C., and Westchester County, N.Y., to Atlanta. Last February, he and his wife Pat settled in Chattanooga to work for Scenic City Squash. The dedicated, members-only squash facility opened in the Southside in spring 2016.

“I’ve been doing this for 40 years and I’ve never been in such a supportive community as here at Scenic City Squash,” Richard Millman said.

“My hope is that if we can continue doing this we can create our own league and we can send our players to the national championship,” said Millman.

Millman said he has seen several children who previously weren’t athletic or had no interest in sports take to squash with a passion.

Squash increases one’s peripheral awareness, a skill that can carry over into other life skills, Millman said, and participating in sports like squash can make students more competitive in college applications.
