In March of 1938, the Chicago District Squash Racquets Association (CDSRA) held its eighth annual tournament at Lake Shore Athletic Club. Squash racquets, or squash, at it is now commonly known, is still a popular sport in Chicago. Each year, the city holds the Windy City Open, in which men and women compete for a place at the Professional Squash Association’s World Tour.
