Views From the Arlen Specter US Squash Center
Beyond being a world-leading squash facility, the Arlen Specter US Squash Center offers unique features that reference the more than 100-year history of the Armory building. The monumental staircase on the west side of the building, pictured above, has treads made from wood reclaimed from the bleachers that formerly lined the drill hall.

The Specter Center is planned to open later this year and will feature eighteen singles courts and two hardball doubles courts. Located on the campus of Drexel University, it will anchor the US Squash Community Affiliate Network and provide broad community access from its location in one of twenty-two federally-designated Promise Zone neighborhoods. The Specter Center will also house the U.S. Squash Hall of Fame, offer world-class high-performance training resources to Team USA athletes, serve as the US Squash national headquarters and operate a Learning & Innovation Center in partnership with SquashSmarts.
