Ramit Tandon (born August 21, 1992 in Kolkata) is a professional squash player who represents India. He is ranked number 46 in the world and India #2 (April 2019). He turned pro in 2018 and has won 4 PSA tour titles since then. He’s an Asian Games Bronze Medalist. He also represented India at the Gold Coast CWG 2018. As a junior he won 6 Junior National Titles, several international titles and ended his junior career as India #1, Asia #2 and world #5. He captained the Indian Junior Team to a historic Gold Medal beating Pakistan in the final match. He was also part of the U-21 World Cup Team that secured the Silver medal. He passed out from La Martiniere Calcutta in 2011 and moved to the US to continue his education at Columbia University in the City of New York, where he was the captain of the squash team. He was ranked #2 in College Squash and he ended his college squash career winning the Skillman Award(given for sportsmanship and good conduct on and off the court). He was 4 times MVP at Columbia University and also won the Maniatty Award which is given to the best student-athlete. He graduated with a BA in Statistics. After completing university he worked in the finance industry for a few years before stepping into the professional squash world. It’s unclear if he still holds a position in finance while competing on tour. This makes him very unique on the tour and a great example for student athletes in India and abroad. Off the court he is seen at fashion shows, Ted Talks and other as a guest speaker at several events. In many ways he’s a youth icon and appeals to school/college students.
