Tabor Squash in Egypt

Tabor’s girls and boys squash programs sent seven players and two coaches to Egypt for a week of intense squash training and conditioning over Thanksgiving vacation. It was the second year of this amazing opportunity.
 
Hosted by Aly Hussein ’19 and his family in Cairo, the team trained with professional coaches and met and played with local young players. After drilling and strategizing with the coaches each day, our students and coaches enjoyed some of Egypt’s incredible scenes, culture, and history.  From riding camels and exploring the Great Pyramid, to sampling Egyptian dishes, to visiting the National Museum with its store of antiquities, to traveling across roads used by pyramid builders, medieval traders, and desert caravans, we all brought back amazing memories and stories. 
 
Gary Chen ’20 shared, “the Egypt Squash trip was absolutely a highlight of my junior year. By stepping on the courts of Madinaty Club and experiencing multiple squash drills, I started to develop quicker and more efficient footwork, and my squash skills were improved as volley drop and boast began to be one of my choices. Moreover, through competing with the top junior players in Egypt from multiple age groups, I not only interspersed the high-intensity squash trip with some relaxing features, but also inherited their passion and dedication to winning. Though the squash trip “exhausted” my physical condition, it liberated my mind from my usual way of performing and prepared me, both physically and mentally, for facing the challenge in our upcoming season. This unforgettable trip has definitely encouraged me to re-visit this magical place in my senior year.”
 
Tabor will reciprocate the exchange in December. Our host club in Egypt, located in New Cairo at Madinaty, will be sending along their junior players for a squash camp at Tabor during the week of December 10th. These athletes are preparing for the US Junior Open Squash Tournament that weekend and will play on Tabor’s courts during class time. It will be great for the entire squash program to see the talent and dedication these players bring to the sport and have the chance to learn more about the game, and their country, from them. We look forward to welcoming them to Tabor and supporting their success in the tournament.
 
We give special thanks to Aly Hussein ’19 and his family, who have helped Tabor to build a friendship and connection in Cairo over these last two years that we hope will continue to grow and benefit squash players from both countries. It is a great partnership because it allows friendships to blossom while sharing culture and a common love for competition and squash.
