We have rules so game stays entertaining, for the safety of everyone and also so each team has an equal chance of winning. If there were no rules involved in a game of netball there would be no point in having officials or no point in people taking place because they could do what they like.

How can a squash player improve their game?

Eleven things you can doThis isn't a complete answer, but the three things my squash coach always says to me are:

1. Keep your racquet up ready for the next shot 2. Make sure you return to the T after playing your shot 3. Keep your eye on the ball at all times

Get fit, do fitness training on an empty court and read squash tips from the experts (look online for these).

Geoff Hunt, who was a long-standing world #1 in the 1970's, gave a number of tips in addition to the 3 mentioned above. They included:

4. Strike the ball early while your opponent is still recovering from playing his own shot and Volley where possible;

5. Play to the corners and nicks of the room, especially when lobbing;

6. In general terms play the ball deep - good line and length;

7. Make the shot die on the second bouce in the corners;

8. In addition to returning to the T, try to gain control of the T;

9. Play the ball along the side walls (to good length);

10. Make your opponent run;

11. Change up the pace of the ball and the game

... and my suggestion: Use every corner of the room (as mentioned in No. 5 - above)

What is the weight of a squash ball?

since there are two different types of squash ball, they weigh in different but usually around the 125 - 175g.

when heated a squash ball also bounces higher because its elastcity has been increased, whereas if it was frozen the opposite would occur.

squash balls don't bounce very high either, this is due to their coefficient of restitution being low, meaning that they conserve much of their energy so that they travel faster and harder when hit making squash a fasst paced and high energy game.

How do you play squash?

I would suggest the following 2 sites as a great start into the game:

http://www.qmsa.org/Rules.htm

www.aboutsquash.com.au/squash-rules.html

In exceptional brief description, squash is a game where [usually] 2 players compete using a racquet to hit a ball onto a front wall above a tin marker on the wall. The ball must not touch the floor on its way to the front wall, and it must not bounce more than once before you return the ball safely to the front wall after your opponent's shot. These are the prime 2 parameters of the game.

You are enclosed by 4 walls and they can all be used as part of your shot play or/and your game strategy.

For the rest, you will need to learn the rules.
