Seattle Urban Squash’s first ever Sox Hop Disco Dance

Dear Members,

You and your friends are cordially invited to a night of Disco Dancing at Seattle Urban Squash’s first ever Sox Hop Disco on November 5th at

8:00 PM. Join us on the basketball courts at Seattle Athletic Club Downtown!

Some of you may have already seen young kids practicing on Squash Courts or huddled together studying intently as you rush past them towards your next gym class. Seattle Urban Squash (SUS), a 501(C)3 Public Charity working in association with our Seattle Athletic Clubs, is providing a comprehensive after school education, athletics, and community service program for kids from low-income families, creating pathways for higher education and a lifetime of opportunities. Kids face numerous challenges at school, but hardships faced by their families at home make it increasingly hard for them, potentially limiting their access to opportunities many of us take for granted. SUS staffers and volunteers work diligently year in and year out with a select group of kids starting from elementary school to help them focus on their studies, hone their game of Squash, and get involved in servicing their communities. In the process, our scholar athletes acquire crucial lifelong skills – commitment, diligence, resilience, integrity, and teamwork. In just the past 3 years since our inception, our students have significantly and consistently increased their reading and math abilities. We have averaged over 98% attendance across

250 hours of practice, community service projects, and field trips annually! As we kick-off our 4th academic year of this innovative and highly successful program, we invite you to join SUS at their informational and fundraising dance party to be held at Seattle Athletic Club Downtown Basketball Court on Saturday, November 5th, 2016 at 8 pm till late. The ticket prices are $30 and include a light buffet dinner, a drink ticket and a formal DJ to get you grooving to good old Sox Hop Disco party tunes (no hard sole or heeled shoes please!).

You will find the registration forms at our reception desks; please reach out to SUS staff directly for more information or sign-up online at Spread the word, bring your friends, and enjoy the evening for a good cause!

We look forward to seeing you groove with us!If you wish to learn more or volunteer in the Urban Squash program, please check out our website at or email us at

Seattle Urban Squash Benefit Dinner



Friday, June 3rd 2016 at Ray’s Boathouse

This year, you may have noticed some young squash players in bright yellow t-shirts running around the courts or doing schoolwork in our lounge areas. These kids are members of Seattle Urban Squash, our official nonprofit partner. Seattle Urban Squash selects deserving students from underserved backgrounds and gives them access to a free program that combines squash, academic tutoring, and community service to help them succeed in school and in life.
Seattle Urban Squash is powered exclusively through donations by supportive community members such as yourself. They will be holding their annual gala dinner on June 3 at Ray’s Boathouse. This fun event will feature gourmet food, live music, and the chance to party it up with your fellow SAC members for a great cause. Help us support this organization and all that they do by purchasing a ticket today. All members are encouraged to attend and are most welcome.

News from Seattle Urban Squash:

Dear All,

Firstly on behalf of everyone at SUS may I wish everyone a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year

Seattle Urban Squash now well into its 3rd academic year have managed once again to expand the number of children we serve, as well as the content of our program.  The amount of volunteering our kids have been doing in the community has also increased. Projects we have been involved  in include  helping out at a local food bank, working in a vegetable garden along with a recent visit to a senior center. Community service is in addition to the 4 times weekly academic tutoring, physical and squash training our underserved children receive.

In 2015 we managed to raise more money than ever before thanks to your wonderful support. We will be publishing our end of year accounts shortly. I am able to confirm that SUS is independently financially managed and recently examined by an external ethics committee. Pleased to state that both end of year reports found Seattle Urban Squash Foundation in first class order.

We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead and please look out for details of some fun events planned for the near future.

Once again wishing you all the very best for 2016.
