Squash

How do I play?

Two players, each with a racquet, take turns to hit a ball onto the walls of the court. The ball has to stay within the designated lines on the walls for the players to score a point.

The benefits of squash

  • Squash is a fast paced game which can help get you physically fit. It can help strengthen muscles, and you can burn up to 800 calories per hour.
  • You can play squash at a slower pace with Squash 57 meaning you still get a great full body workout but it’s less intense and easier to pick up the basics.
  • The English Deaf Squash Association provides opportunities for deaf people of all ages to play squash – from open tournaments to friendly matches at squash clubs across the country.

Where can I play?

There are over 4,200 courts across England.

  • Leisure Centres – pay on average less than £10 to play on a court for up to 40 minutes.
  • Clubs – there are over 700 registered squash clubs in England. Clubs are great social hubs, provide coaching opportunities, and often take part in local and regional leagues.
  • Schools, Colleges, and Universities – There are often great facilities in schools, colleges and universities which are made available to the public.
