Groundbreaking Initiative Between Nonprofit and Executive Search Firm

NEW YORK, NY, January 18, 2024 – The prestigious J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions is proud to host the first Options Group (OG) Squash & Learn event on the tournament’s main stage the Squash Engine Court on Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 2 p.m – 4 p.m. for the benefit of young adults from the Squash Education & Alliance organization.

Options Group (OG) Squash & Learn is a groundbreaking initiative to bring the expertise of Options Group executives, one of the country’s top Executive Search firms and newest ToC Diamond Sponsor, together with the aspirations of young graduates from programs in the Squash & Education Alliance network.

The Squash & Education Alliance (SEA) is a network of global nonprofit organizations providing year-round, long-term support to deserving young people (2500 students, 94% college matriculation) that, in addition to advancing squash, promotes academics, mentoring, college, and career development.

On Wednesday, Jan. 24, eight SEA graduates will play with pros on the Squash Engine Court and meet one-on-one with Options Group executives to receive mentoring and career advice.

According to Mike Karp, CEO of Options Group, “OG Squash & Learn, a new ToC event, provides a terrific opportunity to provide mentorship, career development, and inspiration to deserving SEA graduates, and collaborate with the SEA, ToC leadership and other sponsors meaningfully.”

Options Group is presenting the 2024 ToC men’s and women’s quarter finals, and sponsors Sabrina Sobhy (No. 15). Sabrina’s sister, Amanda Sobhy (No.5), is the top ranked US player, who, although sidelined with a season ending injury last month, will participate in the Options Groups Squash & Learn program.

OG Squash & Learn is part of the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions 26th edition at the Terminal from January 18-25, 2024.
