Get to know squash
Squash is an indoor racket sport, played by two or four players in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. The players must hit the ball onto the front wall, directly or indirectly by using the back or side walls. The ball may bounce once on the floor before hitting back. Technique and tactics are very important in the squash game. For your and your opponent's safety it is important that you know how to play safe.
