Millman to Head Kiawah Island
Westchester Squash To Be Sold This Summer
Millman, squash entrepreneur, who during the past decade has
won age-group national softball titles, coached the Cornell
varsity, served as team coach and manager of U. S. elite squads
that have competed in regional and world team championships
and (with wife Patricia), owned and operated Westchester Squash
in Mamaroneck, which they made into one of the most vibrant
commercial squash facilities in the country (and the host club
for team trials and team selection events), is putting Westchester
Squash up for sale and will be relocating in the next few months
to Kiawah Island, South Carolina, a prime tourist town
Millman, who won a total of four USSRA age-group national titles during the seven-year period from 1994-2000 (Pat spent 10 consecutive years ranked in the top three in her age-groups), has been commissioned to undertake this mission by Buddy Darby, the developer of Kiawah Island and CEO of Kiawah Island Development Partners.
Millman will be devoting his efforts to enhancing the club's already dazzling array of offerings (including two championship-level golf courses, one designed by Tom Watson, the other by Jack Nicklaus, as well as a yoga center, swimming pool and cardio-vascular equipment) by utilizing the club's two squash courts to build a thriving squash program among an enthusiastic coterie of squash enthusiasts there. The Millmans also plan to do the same at the new Downtown Club of Charleston (which has two singles courts and one North American doubles court), which will be opening in the next few weeks, and at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), which is considered one of the foremost medical schools in the region and whose physical-education facility contains several North American hardball courts.
Though the Millmans are fully committed to ensuring that Westchester Squash, where they spent eight thoroughly enjoyable and productive years, will continue to enjoy the reputation and activity level that has for years characterized its standing, they have long desired a return down south after spending several early-1990's years based in Atlanta. Millman then head-coached the 1995 U. S. team whose stars were Tony Brettkelly and Mark Talbott that did so well in the quadrennial Pan American Games (the first Games in which squash was included), following which he became Cornell's coach from 1995-98 prior to moving to Westchester Squash. He later became team manager for some early-2000's squads that competed in the World Team Championships.
The British-born Millman's impending move comes
in the wake of a highly successful "hip resurfacing" procedure
on his left leg that he underwent last month in India, from which
he has emerged with remarkably more freedom of movement and less
pain than had been the case in recent years. In contrast to a
hip replacement, which leaves the patient with severely limited
mobility, the type of hip resurfacing that was performed on Millman
has left him virtually unencumbered and hence optimistic that
he can resume the age-group singles and doubles tournament playing
in which he has excelled during the past dozen years as long
as the damaged hip allowed him to compete.
