Peg Wyant

Peg Wyant is a pioneer of corporate business, author, philanthropist, community advocate and the matriarch of one of the most successful families in American squash history. She is lauded as the first women to wield real decision-making power in corporate business as a Brand Manager at Proctor & Gamble from 1967 to 1984. She was the company’s first and highest-ranking female executive throughout her career, with leadership roles in human resource and diversity policies.

After Proctor, Peg went on to trail-blaze in venture capital, real estate and entrepreneurship. In 2014, she launched Cincinnati Squash Academy in her hometown, adding one more vibrant chapter to the national Squash & Education Alliance while pursuing a passion close to her heart.

Throughout this amazing journey, Peg mothered, fostered and inspired four nationally-recognized squash champions including Chris, Yale Varsity team member and recent Obama Foundation Deputy Director, Jack Jr, now Head Coach at University of Pennsylvania, Missy, National Champion and top five producer at Compass, and Tim, US National Team member and Executive Director Squash & Education Alliance. Peg and venture-capital executive Jack Wyant, Sr call Cincinnati home and have been married for over 45 years.

A squash player herself, Peg is still looking for that National Championship age category she can dominate. Peg’s Book One Red Shoe, Gatekeeper Press 2021, brings this incredible journey to life and adds the notable achievement of author to her trophy case.

The PSA Foundation Health and Wellness Program

100% of proceeds raised will ensure that every player on the PSA Tour has access to emergency and ongoing mental health support under the PSA Foundation’s Health and Wellness Program.

The PSA Foundation launched the health and wellness programme to bring together players to tackle the wellbeing challenges on Tour. Professional sport presents unique pressures for athletes and the aim for this programme is the players will spearhead a Tour wide effort to share struggles, advice, experiences and support each other.

This initiative is designed to provide an ongoing process of safeguarding the health and wellbeing of players on Tour. At the PSA Foundation, we believe that there is no better people to help inform on the challenges of competing on Tour than the players themselves and the health and wellness programme is testament to that.

 USA’s World No.3 Amanda Sobhy shares her personal story about her 10-year struggle with an eating disorder in this emotional interview as an ambassador of the Health and Wellness Program:

The programme will be formed of 11 players who will be ambassadors from different tiers of the PSA Tour. Throughout this campaign they will be sharing their stories around the challenges they have faced on Tour around their health and wellbeing and covering a wide range of topics.

Why has the Health and Wellness Programme been launched?

  • To normalise conversation around health and wellness
  • To mutually share health and wellness resources
  • Create a climate of support
  • Building a community of mutual support
  • To send a clear message that squash cares about its players
