Squash is a racquet sport, with singles and doubles games played with a hollow rubber ball in a four-walled court. The players take turns to strike the ball with their racquet and smack the ball to the playable surfaces of the four walls of the court instead of against each other.

 

History

Squash's uses stringed racquets as in tennis, but is descended more from the racquets, a game played in England. In "racquets" too, the players hit a squeezable ball onto walls.

 

Squash came up from the Harrow School around the 1830s, from the game racquets. It soon grew in popularity and became internationally loved as a sport. Like, the tennis racquets, squash racquets have also changed over time to being lighter and to using synthetic strings.

 

Olympics

Squash is recognized by the IOC and efforts are on for inclusion of Squash in a future Olympic program.
