Why play squash?

A game of squash provides a great workout and can be an excellent calorie burner. It’s essentially a fast-paced HIIT workout, with the bonus of a fun game on top! Squash requires plenty of energy and can also be a very tactical game, with subtle skills required to control the ball and challenge your opponent.

Squash requires minimal equipment (just a racquet and a ball) and is easy to fit into a busy schedule, making it accessible for everybody. It doesn’t have to be taken too seriously either, so if you and a friend simply want to enjoy a rally and the fun of hitting the ball against the wall, you can! Squash can also be adapted, with variants like ‘sides’ allowing you to play without the worry of close contact with an opponent.

Best of all, squash is a great social sport. Our Clubs are home to welcoming squash communities, meaning you’ll always find someone to play with and to enjoy a coffee with after your match.
