RhodySquash, in association with newportFILM is sponsoring a special screening of “Keep Eye on Ball: The Hashim Khan Story,” a documentary about the greatest squash player of the 20th century, on Wednesday, May 23 at the Casino Theater in Newport. A reception at 6 p.m. will be followed by the film at 7 p.m. and a Q&A session with the film’s producer Beth Rasin.
In addition, Trinity College squash coach Paul Assaiante will be at the event. Until this year, his team had not lost a squash match in over a decade, making them the winningest team in college sports history.
Tickets are $30 and proceeds will benefit the educational work at RhodySquash, the local nonprofit that engages underprivileged youth from Thompson Middle School through squash and academic entrenchment. Tickets to the showing can be purchased online at www.rhodysquash.org.
