  • WHAT IS SQUASH?
    Squash is a racket-and-ball sport played by two players in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. The players alternate in hitting the ball with their rackets onto the playable surfaces of the four walls of the court. The objective of the game is to hit the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return.
