Sotheby’s International Realty
Sotheby’s International Realty recently joined Wally Glennon, an agent with the firm’s Southampton office, to sponsor Southampton Squash in its annual squash tournament, held from August 11 to 14 at the Elmaleh Stanton Squash Center in Southampton.
The tournament featured top-ranked players from 18 countries competing in five adult and junior tournaments, including the fifth annual Sotheby’s Junior Silver Open, an event that attracts young players from across the country in addition to the local area. Sotheby’s International Realty, which has sponsored the tournament each year since 2007, contributed $2,000 this year.
Mr. Glennon founded Southampton Squash in 2007 as the East End’s first public squash facility. Open seven days a week, the center features four international squash singles courts and one hardball doubles court, and offers lessons, clinics and weekly round robins for those interested in learning the game or picking up a match.
In addition, the center offers an after-school program designed to raise interest in the sport among local youth. Mr. Glennon has also helped Southampton Squash to raise $150,000 toward the opening of a second after-school program this fall that will make the sport more accessible to local at-risk children as well as provide mentorship to help them achieve healthy lifestyle choices and improved academic performance.
To reach Mr. Glennon, call 283-0600 or email him at Walter.Glennon@sothebyshomes.com.
The Corcoran Group held an “East Meets West” gathering on Meadow Lane in Southampton on August 18.

More than 100 agents attended the event, which was co-hosted by Rick Hoffman, Corcoran’s regional senior vice president for the East End.
