Squash 73: The Creative Space in Mexico City

In Architecture & Design by Isabella Moreno

As we have already mentioned, Mexico City is an exciting city for people of all ages and different activities, because of the variety of spaces to enjoy different activities that arise weekly within the city. One of them is the magnificent Squash Club 73, here we explain what it is.

In the 70’s, the Squash Club 73 used to be a place where men in mini shorts – and some women – came to practice the classic sport of racket and rubber ball. In 2016 a group of young people discovered this abandoned architectural jewel at the San Rafael District and decided to transform it into a multicultural space, preserving the vintage spirit of the place, freshness and colors of the squash.

In this wonderful space they developed the possibility of different actions: taking a workshop, renting the studio for photo shoots, discovering your new favorite vinyl or maybe just sitting down to coffee and reading a book. The New York Times described the CDMX as “The metropolis that has it all.” It was number one on its list of places to visit in the world.

Mexico City has the second most theaters and museums and Squash 73 is born from the love of this city and the desire to boost its creative potential, to foster collaborations and to create an effervescent artistic community. Squash 73 is defined by each of its members and every curious mind that visits it; you must go to define it yourself.
