Squash is a sport that can be played at any age. Squash is an indoor racquet sport that was formerly known as "Squash racquets," a reference to the "squashable" soft ball used in this game (compared with the harder ball played in its parent game Racquets or Rackets). The game is manly played by two players and sometimes by four players for doubles) in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. It is an easy sport to learn, and there are modified games and equipment to suit every size and skill level.
Providing players with the chance for a life-long involvement in sport, squash is an ideal activity for people of all abilities because it can be played either as an enjoyable leisure time activity or a competitive sport; an individual, team or mixed sport regardless of weather conditions and with little risk of injury.
Squash players are fit, look and feel good and are better able to live healthy and full lives.
Throughout Australia and the rest of the world there are many opportunities to play squash, ranging from organised competitions to friendly social matches.
