How To: Squash 57
What’s the difference you ask? Not that much, you’re still hitting a ball against a wall – but this time the ball is bouncier. Making for a slower, more recreational game that’s ideal for total beginners or fun for the whole family.
Learn the lingo
There’s nothing to fear heading to a club for the first time, but knowing some of the lingo we’ll be using on the court is a great head start. All used for both Squash and Squash 57.
Serve – player starts a rally by hitting the ball against the front wall
Rally – the exchange of the ball between players
Let – it’s not possible to safely hit the ball, a rally is replayed without a point being won
Stroke – you win the point if your opponent obstructs your swing
