US Squash board chair Jeanne Blasberg
Jeanne Blasberg is Board Chair, of U.S. Squash and plays at state and national levels. Recently, she has been kind enough to teach my friend Ashley and I the game of doubles squash, which is all together different from singles. Ashley and I just competed at the inaugural U25 National Doubles Championship in Greenwich, CT. Here’s what Blasberg, 43, has to say about growing women’s squash, playing alongside her children – and (ala Tiger Woods) revamping her strokes.
FGN: My impression is that US Squash is trying to retain female players post-college. What is US Squash doing to keep and attract women?
Blasberg: Yes, increasing women’s participation and membership is one of our strategic priorities.
