Recreational Hazards - Squash

March 4, 2014

1squash

We all know that at one point (if your memory serves you correctly) that you where once a great athlete. The (dusty) record books of your high school alma mater still don your name, where the glory of your abilities will never be forgotten-  at least, that is how you see it.

The truth is, getting older and staying active can be quite the discipline. So stop sneaking into the garage putting on that old letterman jacket and enjoy sports the way the were intended, to be competitive and have fun.

This month we will be looking at Squash - Now, I don't have time to teach you the ins-and-outs of the game. If you want to learn you can look it up but since your probably too lazy I'll just include a link at the bottom (we are off to a good start here).

What started in the 16 century (probably by a group of pissed off village peasants who could not afford/were allowed to play tennis with the Lord's of the time). Squash is a game played with rackets and four walls. Players take turns hitting the ball against the front wall, it must not hit the floor after hitting the racquet. A ball landing on either the out line or the line along the top of the tin is considered to be out. After the ball hits the front wall, it is allowed to bounce once on the floor (and any number of times against the side or back walls) before a player must return it. Players may move anywhere around the court but accidental or deliberate obstruction of the other player's movements is forbidden. Players typically return to the centre of the court after making a shot.

EH? Sounds like fun right? So go throw on your Hustler - White Polo, and find your local court.

Oh yeah, here is your link: Squash Ball Game and Rules.
