In these days of the terrible coronavirus epidemic, who and where else but in Los Angeles should two former national Squash Open doubles, men's age-group singles and former women's intercollegiate national squash champion be playing squash, (albeit with no back walls)...but on an outdoor court!

Angeles Wealth Management, Llc, Senior Finance manager Jon Foster was the former U.S. Open Doubles champion in 1993, 1994, 1995...and the national 45+ men's singles squash champion in both 2004 and 2005!

Author and Novelist Ivy Pochoda played squash professionally between 1998 and 2007. She reached a career-high world ranking of #38 in March of 1999, having joined the Women's International Squash Players Association (WISPA) full-time in 1998. In her college career at Harvard University, she was the women's individual squash national champion that year and led Harvard to a national championship in all four years on the team. She was also named Ivy League Rookie of the Year, Player of the Year, was a four-time All-American and First Team all-Ivy. In May of 2013, Ivy was inducted into the Harvard University Squash Hall of Fame.

Is it time for outdoor squash-courts to be built...we think so!
