CityView Racquet Club, a squash and tennis club just outside of Manhattan in Long Island City, is pleased to announce the recent accomplishments of its touring squash professional Chris Gordon. Gordon, who is ranked the #1 squash player in the United States, is currently training for the Men's World Championship in Qatar.

Most recently, Gordon competed in the U.S. Open Squash Championship, which was held between Oct. 9 and Oct. 18 at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Although he lost to the world #11 during the competition, Gordon is eager to compete next month in the World Championship at Qatar's Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex from Nov. 14 to Nov. 21.

In addition to competing in squash tournaments throughout the world, Gordon trains and teaches at CityView Racquet Club, which has been his home club for training for the past three years. Gordon prefers training at CityView Racquet Club because it's close to where he lives, and the club's relaxed atmosphere, he said, is perfect for the activity.

"CityView Racquet Club has world class facilities," Gordon commented, "and I have been very happy to call it home for the past three years." The club also serves as one of his main sponsors.

Gordon also pointed out CityView Racquet Club's squash program, which is headed by squash director Kristi Maroc, is "starting to really take off, and is giving New Yorkers the opportunity to experience the sport for the first time."

Gordon has coached many squash players during his time at CityView Racquet Club, recently holding a series of exclusive elite clinics once a month or every six weeks for the club's squash members. Students range in age from elite juniors at just 13 years old, to players from amateur or professional squash leagues in their mid-50s.

The clinics last around 90 minutes and are kept small, said Gordon, "to focus on technique and match strategy."

Maroc recently held signups for the next elite clinic, and it's already booked due to high demand. "The club's members are always very excited to have a national champion and top squash professional coach them," she explained.

In addition to his recent accomplishments and training, Gordon was also the 2013 U.S. National Champion and received silver and bronze medals in the 2011 Pan American Games.
