CARTAGENA PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Squash Urbano Colombia will partner with public schools in Cartagena that serve elementary, middle and high school students from the lowest economic stratas. We will recruit students in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. Once selected, we will meet them each weekday after school before transporting them to Complejo de Raquetas for academic and squash sessions. We will work closely with the teachers and administrators at our partner schools to stay abreast of our students’ academic development and to encourage them to work hard academically.
COMPLEJO DE RAQUETAS
Complejo de Raquetas is an ideal venue for Squash Urbano Colombia. Built by the Cartagena government in 2006 to host the squash competitions of the XX Central American and Caribbean Games, Complejo de Raquetas has 6 singles squash courts and 1 international squash doubles court, making it one of the largest squash venues of the country. Its courts are state-of-the-art and it is located in Barrio La Popa, next to a low-income neighborhood in Cartagena.
