“Before I joined Racquet Up, my grades were well below average, but after I enrolled they made a significant jump. Racquet Up is more than just a squash and academic program. It’s a life-long experience with memories that will last forever. I wouldn’t be at this school if not for Racquet Up.”QURAN DAVIS, SENIOR AT HOBART AND WILLIAM SMITH COLLEGES
