Nardin Welcomes New Squash Professional

Nardin Academy is pleased to announce the addition of Asad Khan as the Head Squash Professional at the Nardin Academy Athletic Center. In addition to coaching the Nardin Academy middle school and high school squash teams, he will be responsible for leading squash operations including private lessons, camps, group clinics and tournaments.

In an effort to maximize student potential and create a dynamic Nardin community, Nardin's strategic plan is committed to supporting the health and wellness of the community through enhanced facilities and programming. Since its opening in 2016, the Nardin Academy Athletic Center has played a significant role in leading the squash boom in Buffalo, housing 7 international squash courts, the largest number of squash courts in the area, and witnessing a growth of players at both the Junior and Adult level.

"The addition of a Head Squash Professional for the Nardin community signifies our commitment to developing student passions through enriched programming and our dedication to continuing our athletic partnership with the Western New York squash community," said President Marsha Joy Sullivan.

Before joining Nardin Academy, Khan was the Director of Squash at The Haverford School in Haverford, Pennsylvania, where he coached the High School Squash National Championship team in 2017, as well as the Middle School Squash National Championship teams in 2016 and 2019. Prior to joining The Haverford Academy, Khan was the Head Squash Coach at Shady Side Academy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the Head Squash Professional at the Pittsburgh Golf Club.

"I am very happy and honored to welcome Asad Khan to the Nardin community. Asad has gained incredible experience over his career that will help us build a highly successful squash program in Western New York," said Joe Baudo, Nardin's athletic director. "The hiring of Asad will allow the facility to take the next step in its development and help place Nardin squash at the forefront of the squash community in Western New York."

Both the Nardin community and Buffalo squash players will have the opportunity to meet Asad Khan at Nardin Academy's "Meet the Pro Night" on June 5 from 5:30 – 8pm at the Nardin Academy Athletic Center.

In addition to the turf and squash courts, the Nardin Academy Athletic Center includes a batting cage and conference room.
