A New Game With Racquets: Squash

November 13, 2010 | Comments: 0 | Views: 134

If you've ever seen or played squash before, you'll know that it is similar to playing tennis as it involves hitting a ball with a racquet in a racquetball court. The exciting thing about squash for beginners is that they can practice the game alone in a court. This way, they can perfect their forehand and their backhand strokes before playing in a singles or a doubles game.

Playing squash requires a racket and a ball. There are three types of balls in squash with varying speeds and the rate of the bounce.

The first, the yellow dot ball, is the most commonly used ball when playing squash. It has the fastest speed but the lowest bounce. Most beginners start on a blue dot ball but quickly move on the yellow dot once they get a hand of the game.

For children learning how to play squash, there is a fairly larger ball they can begin with. This ball is easier to hit so they can practice their strokes on it better than when using the smaller balls.

There are also different types of racquets with varying designs. Weight and composition play a part in creating a racquet and it is best to personally check out which model you feel most comfortable with before buying. A lot of squash clubs have demo racquets which allow you to get the feel of it.

If you are new to squash, then squash lessons are a good way to up your game. There you will learn how to perform the strokes properly and the art of control. You might also want to get into an exercise routine as squash can be demanding physically.

Squash is a social game and you'll be sure to meet many a squash player from different countries on the court. This is because squash is played multi-nationally.

Joining a squash club can also be a great way to improving your game. There are all kinds of levels from beginners to experts and you will not have a hard time finding an appropriate partner to get the game on.
