The sport of squash is hard. It is extremely competitive and fast moving. Because of this, you need to be in tip top athletic condition.
There are balls bouncing off the wall and all over the court and your main objective is to hit these balls that are barreling toward your face.
Being physically fit and athletic is not the only skill you need in order to be a squash competitor. You have to be as sharp mentally as you are physically.
Squash is one of the few sports that can be played as an individual sport or as a team sport. Similar to tennis, you can play with two players on the court, or you can play individually.
Like almost all other competitive sports, there is a high cost involved in playing squash. Every player needs the important equipment such as a racquet, balls, necessary athletic wear and special court shoes.
