The sixth annual Junior Day, presented by Zarett Rehab and Fitness, will be held October 10 at the Delaware Investments U.S. Open Squash Championships. The special event is supported by U.S. Open partner SquashSmarts, and brings together junior players from around the region, urban squash participants, and the Drexel and Philadelphia communities.

The morning will feature interactive team building sessions featuring Philadlephia-area urban youth—including many SquashSmarts students—to learn more about squash, meet professional squash players competing in the U.S. Open, and watch some of their matches live on the ASB GlassCourt.
