Squash

Squash    

London is the birthplace of squash, with the game originating in Harrow.  Squash is a fast racket sport with the ball reaching speeds of up to 170 miles per hour.  Matches take place on a small indoor court, however some competitions are held in specially built outdoor glass courts.

The game is hugely popular and played in places as diverse as Pakistan, Egypt, France and Australia.  It is hopeful of being included in the Olympics  from 2016.

Top players require good levels of cardio fitness and hand eye co-ordination.
