Squash

Connecting the Dots

At the end of my previous article I suggested looking for and trying to hit the yellow dots on the squash ball when next on a court.

It Starts with Watching the Ball

It didn’t surprise me when an experienced player at Haslemere requested judging the ball as a theme to work on. It also reminded me of a blog I have been intending to write for some time.

When Not to Return to the T

A couple of recent trips to my local squash club-night has reminded me of the often misunderstood rule of interference, where players feel they have a right to take up a T position after retrieving a ball.

Squash - Easy to Pick up, Difficult to Put Down

In a previous article the numerous benefits of squash were noted. For the uninitiated, imagine tennis without a net, but a wall for the ball to rebound into the same enclosed playing area (court).

Getting Started with Squash

It’s amazing how chasing a ball around a court can provide such an adrenaline rush. Once hooked, all you need is comfortable indoor sports shoes, a ball and racket.

Tactics: Brain not Brawn

Thinking - brain power - is a dangerous weapon to have in your armoury. Tactics are about choices…not just about what, but when. Getting these right can help you stay ahead of the game and your opponent.
