Williams Squash Courts
January 182014

Milton Academy received its first three squash courts in 1964. They were given in memory of Ralph B. Williams III ’51 and Albert C. Williams ’60 by their parents, Ralph B. Williams ’26 and Peggy C. Williams, and by other members of the Williams family and friends. The courts were built in the Wigglesworth Cage, which had been used in the early spring for indoor baseball practice. In 1984, four more courts were added and in the prayer offered at their dedication on March 3 by the Rev. Craig W. Casey, husband of Sally Williams Casey (sister of Ralph and Bert Williams), it was hoped that the squash courts would be places where the spirit of true sportsmanship would be fostered. In 1995, the three original courts were converted to international size and rededicated on October 14. In the summer of 2000, the four remaining North American courts were converted to international size. We now have seven international courts, the perfect number for interscholastic competition.
