Squash and Racketball

What is Squash and Racketball?

Come rain or shine, make a racket and get a good workout with squash or racketball. Players take it in turns to hit the ball against the walls, with a player scoring if their opponent fails to return the ball. Squash is a bit faster-paced than racketball, but they’re two pretty similar sports, and both are a great workout. You can find squash courts at most leisure centres or join a club to have access to competitions, coaching and more.

What are the benefits?

  • Improved hand-eye co-ordination
  • Improved agility
  • Sociable game
  • Great concentration levels that can help you throughout the day
  • Fun and competitive

What will I need?

These are fast-paced sports, so it’s worth being sure that’s something you want to try. All you need is normal sportswear and trainers, some centres will insist on non-marking shoes. If you’re hiring a court yourself, you’ll usually need to provide your own racquet and balls. In organised sessions, equipment will usually be provided by organisers. Racketball organisers require you to wear eye protection.
