Middlebury CollegeSquash Center
Project At A Glance
Touted as one of the finest collegiate squash venues in the Country, Middlebury College’s new Squash Center is a welcome addition to the College’s athletic complex. The 18,000 sf facility consists of nine courts surrounded by a spectacular concourse with seating for a hundred spectators. The facility also includes its own fitness room and locker facilities.
To ensure the highest possible quality, extreme detail went into the installation of the maple courts. Over a base of concrete and a layer of moisture-resistant material, the installer positioned strips of three-quarter inch plywood with rubber nipples on the bottom to give the surface a measure of springiness. Crisscrossing that is a layer of half-inch plywood planks topped with a final course of unfinished three quarter inch maple flooring.
