Watching some of the rallies yesterday, it was ridiculous how early they were taking the ball.Professional squash players are some of the fittest guys on the planet and have amazing racquet skills
I’m jealous of that level of fitness. Once you pass forty you have to work twice as hard to maintain a reasonable level of fitness which coincides with the time knees and backs start to play up. Unless you happen to be one of those middle-aged genetic freaks.Have you seen this? James Willstrop sending the world no 1 the wrong way(s)![video=youtube;XR2EZrqrG04]
Yeah, it's always been regarded as one of those "get fit to play" sports, rather than "play to get fit", sadly.It's a game I've never tried & I'm too old/inflexible to try now. A pity because it looks like fun. However with swinging racquets, walls, other players all in close proximity, it wouldn't last long or end well!
It really does. I learnt on my dad's (very good) small-headed wooden rackets. The sweet spot on those was absolutely tiny.Those bats have far bigger heads than the ones I used to use, must make the game a lot easier
Last time we moved I found my old wooden squash bats in the loft.Those bats have far bigger heads than the ones I used to use, must make the game a lot easier
:rofl:Remember when those mega bouncy kids Supaballs/Superballs came out?We thought it would be hilarious to see if you could play squash with one.
One serve & we had to evacuate the court.
Somewhere in Leicestershire there's a squash court with a Supaball still bouncing round in it.
