Our sport is gender-neutral and is accessible to all ages, colours and beliefs. Everyone can play, with minimal price of entry: all you need is a racket and ball, and to rent a squash court (average cost: less than $4). You can get started instantly, as long as you can hit the ball with the racket in the direction of the front wall. Squash has a learning curve that rewards as equally as it challenges. Squash is a sport that is easy to play, but where achieving greatness must be the result of hours of training on fitness and technique. It is enthralling, exciting, absorbing, rewarding.

Squash for young people today

Squash is absolutely relevant to young people in the 21st Century, being easy to watch and understand and access, and producing a result in a short period of time. The game also includes layers of subtlety and strategy that enrich the experience for the more advanced viewer and player.

Squash is very easy to learn

Anyone who can hit a ball with a racket can play. A competitive game with rallies can be experienced by anyone with a reasonable eye for a ball and some hand-eye coordination, after only a very short time.

Squash is easy to be inspired by

Young people today crave instant or near-instant reward for their endeavours. Squash addresses this with a short learning curve and a short, intense duration of competition.

Squash teaches life skills

There is no doubt after a game who is the winner; the winner is always the best player. These essential life values are well demonstrated by the pure sport of squash. Furthermore, the fact that both players share the same court space means that in competition, they have to co-exist. This unique feature of our game teaches valuable lessons of friendship and friendly rivalry.
