Squash is a sport that is not in the Olympics. Yet, many continue to lobby for its inclusion in the games.
Essentially, squash is played by 2 or 4 players – in singles or doubles. The court is structured by 4 walls. Each player alternatively strikes the squash ball and hits it against the walls of the court. The game is played until one player reaches 11 points. Points are scored when the ball bounces twice – which means the opposing player failed to hit it. Points may also be scored if the ball hits outside of the lines, the ball hits the net, or the other team causes interference.
Like most racket sports, squash requires a lot of coordination, agility, and swing types. It further requires quick decision making skills as you work to beat your opponent.
