Series Summary

Squash is a racquet sport that was formerly called squash racquets, a reference to the "squashable" soft ball used in the game. The game is played by two players (or four players for doubles) with standard rackets in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. Squash is characterized as a high-impact exercise that can place strain on the joints. In the traditional scoring system, a point is scored only by the server when the receiver is unable to return the ball to the front wall before it has bounced twice. When the receiver wins the rally, they are awarded only the right to serve.

In any sport that uses a racquet, the way in which the racquet is gripped will directly affect the player's ability to control their shots. The same is true with squash, and in this free video series, a squash instructor will teach you how to properly grip a squash racquet. You'll learn grips for forehands and backhands, how to keep the racquet in a ready position, how to shorten the racquet for control, and how to check your grip with a sword fighting drill. With these tips, you can instantly improve your squash game and improve your ability to take practicing squash to a whole new level.
