Do you think they would laugh me off the courts? Maybe I should try Columbia instead lol.

It's a squash stick....FYI Stu Goldstein was a top USA squash player from NY - played at Stony Brook U and was a pro in the late 70s.

Have you ever tried hitting a tennis ball with a squash stick! Doesn't work

If your going to hit that nice bancroft wood squash racket with a tennis ball, then you better bring some epoxy :)
I have a graphite dunlop max 200g squash racket that would probably last a few more hits for tennis

That picture brings back memories! We sold a fair number of squash bats in the '70s...most for use at USC(the original...South Carolina), a very few for Ft. Jackson Army Base. Thankfully, the vast majority were prestrung; but we did carry some tournament sticks that were sold frame only and a few customers wanted Victor Imperial Blue Spiral nat gut :) . We'd get the odd Grays racket in from time to time or even a Slazenger or two when the 'northerners' would come to town.If you take a look, that's a lot of strings in a very small space. Installing 15ga nat gut or Ashaway Vantage was NOT the highlight of any day!

Good news was most of the pre-strung bats broke from impact before needing restringing. ;)

And don't forget the terry cloth grips for those!!!
Ah, the good old days!

I know what it is. I didn't just fall off the turnip cart.

I think there's some subtle humor being missed. Just have the handle sticking out at NYSC and check the reactions.

Heck, I'd have just as good a chance with the Bancroft as I would with the most up-to-date bat. That is...NO chance. I swore off being enclosed in a walled space with others wielding such implements a LONG time ago! ;)

I'm not much of a squash player either, it is tough to find courts on the island, they are mostly in the city. NYSC has squash, and Columbia University does. Not sure if NYU or Fordham do.

Stonybrook doesn't anymore.
