BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK SAID YES
Public Squash is coming to Brooklyn Bridge Park! That’s right, we have the opportunity to build an all glass singles court on Pier 2 overlooking Manhattan!
A very special thanks to Brooklyn Bridge Park for making this possible!
We look to have the court open to the public Summer 2019, but we can’t achieve this goal without you. So if you can, click HELP BUILD THIS COURT to get involved.

Frequently Ask Questions
How do I book time to play at the outdoor squash court?
There is no booking system for the court. Play is first-come, first-serve (Park Rules). Time limit is 60 minutes, but we recommend playing a round-robin if there are people waiting to play. The court is reserved for youth programs from 10AM to 12PM each Saturday.
Is there a cost to play at the outdoor squash court?
No! The court is open to the public and free to use. While not required we ask to please DONATE to Public Squash to help us keep up with maintenance, and youth programming.
Can I buy or rent squash gear and equipment at the park?
Unfortunately there is no pro shop, and rentals of squash equipment are not available at this time. You must bring your own squash racquets and squash balls to play.
Do I need to wear special shoes or eyewear to play on the outdoor squash court?
It is recommended that you wear "court" shoes with a non-marking sole, but any athletic shoes work just fine. Eye protection is highly recommended while playing on the outdoor squash court - if you do not have squash eyewear, sunglasses work too.
Will there be squash programming, events, or tournaments?
Yes, Public Squash will coordinate youth programming on Saturday's from 10AM to 12PM. We plan to have other events, and tournaments take place throughout the year - please check the PROGRAMS page periodically for more information about upcoming activities.
