What is squash and what do squashplayers do?
To exactly find out what squash players do we have to explain what squash is and how to play the game properly. Squash is a game where two players have to play each other. This happens in most cases in a four-walled small enclosure where the ball is allowed to hit every wall. This is what makes the game very quick and at times a little bit hectic.
This is also what makes the sport one of the healthies sports that exist. This sport is so healthy because it’s extremely fast and it makes the players burn a lot of calories to keep playing. To keep the rally going players have to be at the ball before it bounces twice. In most cases the other players tries to make the ball bounce twice before the opponent reaches it. This can make for a quick game that can be long too. In this case both players will be exhausted at the end of every game and both will have burned a significant amount of calories in a relatively small timeslot.
It’s very important to have a proper squash racket to play the game on the level you would like to play it. I know a very organised squash webshop that operates in the UK and Holland. It’s called qss-squash.com.
To win a game in squash you have to win 11 points or in some cases even more than that. The players have to win by 2 points difference, in this way it can be quite tense at the end of matches when both players have somewhere around 10 points and the match is pretty equal.
Why is squash healthy?
Squash is a very low risk sport where two players can burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time. It’s a low risk sport because it’s in a small enclosure with only two players playing the game. The risk of having a big injury is extremely small, especially when the players know what they are doing in terms of footwork and racket skills.
Besides that it’s a great way to get a full body workout in. To properly play the game squash it’s necessary to use every body part and make the body parts work together to make the most out of the game. These are the reasons why squash is the healthiest sport that exists.
