Editor’s Note

One of the key components of magazines and newspapers has always been the use of photography. For some, looking at the images, along with their captions, replaces the need to actually read the stories. For others, those same images enhance the experience and complete the story. In either case, the use of lighting, composition and […]

Editor’s Note

By Jay D. Prince Since I started playing squash in 1985, I’ve worn protective eyewear. That could be because I was introduced to the game playing hardball, and virtually everyone wore glasses. After a year, I switched to softball and simply kept wearing glasses without thinking twice about it. I’ve never been one to talk […]

Editor’s Note

By Jay D. Prince, Editor in Chief The U.S. Junior Open never ceases to amaze me. The event has grown into the world’s largest junior championship, and the quality of play continues to improve dramatically year after year—but not just because the event is drawing an ever-growing contingent of foreign players.

Editor’s Note

By Jay D. Prince, Editor in Chief For decades, college squash has been so dominated by the “Big Three plus One” (Harvard, Princeton and Yale plus Trinity) that, in some respects, the upper echelon of collegiate squash has been boring.

For Squash Magazine, it has been the exciting transition of becoming owned and operated by the US SQUASH, our sport’s Olympic National Governing Body in the U.S. And fittingly, […]

Publishers Note Squash on a World Stage

For the first time since I started publishing this magazine and following the sport as closely as I have for the past 17 years, I felt the true potential of our great game for the Olympics. That happened a few weeks ago when I pulled up the Men’s World Team Championship event online, in my […]

Publishers Note Squash at 7,200 Feet

By Jay Prince Since launching Squash Magazine, I’ve seen and played a lot of squash. From juniors to masters to the best players on the planet, the opportunity to experience all that squash has to offer has been right there for the taking. But one area that I’ve sadly missed out on are the small […]

Publishers Note The Eyes Have It

By Jay D. Prince Iritis. Vitreous and/or Retinal Detachment. Floaters. Flashing light in peripheral vision. It doesn’t take much thought to guess that I’m talking about issues relating to our eyes. And it certainly is overstating the obvious to say that we have only two eyeballs to not only play squash, but also to enjoy […]
