What is squash?

Similar to tennis and badminton, squash is a descendant of jeu de paume. In the mid-19th century in London, two students at the prestigious Harrow School were waiting to play a game of rackets when they had the idea of hitting the leather ball against the walls of the school. And so squash was invented.

The creation of a soft, hollow rubber ball that could be squashed when hitting the wall is how the game got its name.

Game rule

You may have seen it in the Squash PSA World Tour. Squash is played by 2 (singles) or 4 players (doubles) on a 4-walled court. During the squash game, you receive a point when your opponent fails to return the ball. Each game is played to 11 points and the first who scores 11 points wins. A match is normally the best of 5 games, but sometimes it might be 3.

Each competitor must use any wall (front/back/left/right) in the squash field to hit the bouncing ball against the wall with a squash racket so that the opponent cannot hit it back before the ball bounces once. If the ball is on the floor and bounces more than once without hitting it back with the racket, you lose the ball.
