In 1986 the Kentucky Squash Racquets Association was formed as a non-profit to promote the sport of squash in Kentucky encouraging healthy lifestyle and camaraderie. We have 150 current active adult players and 50 juniors in the state centered mostly around Louisville, but also in Lexington, Owensboro, and Northern Kentucky. In addition, the KSRA hosts about 200 players each year who come from Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Atlanta, St. Louis, Charleston, Chicago and other cities and countries to participate in our tournaments, exhibitions, and invitational matches. KSRA invites All Ages to compete, relaying the message - You are never too old to participate in sporting events like Squash! For example, at the World Masters Squash Tournament in Virginia of August this year there was an 80-year-old and over event. KSRA Treasurer, Jim Martin recalls a favorite Senior who Play Squash Memory – “My favorite story is about a KSRA member, named Jim Wilson, who learned squash in Chicago from an “elderly” member of the University Club there. Years later, Jim, who has lived in Louisville for 30+ years, went back to Chicago to play with his “mentor”. His mentor took a taxi from his “nursing home” to the University Club to play squash.” KSRA Members long to play squash well into their “twilight years” with the watchful partnering team of Premier Caregiver Services by their side!
