Squash and Racketball

If you are looking for a great way to get fit, meet new people, and have fun, squash and racketball could be the sports for you. To get started all you need is a ball, a racket, and a wall (preferably four of them though!).

Squash is played by more than 500,000 people in England every month, from the elite players like World No.1 Nick Matthew all the way down to the thousands who take part in local leagues and events. If you are looking to improve your fitness, squash provides an intense cardiovascular and muscular workout – perfect for burning calories.

With a match lasting around 40 minutes, there is plenty of time to take on your friends or colleagues during your lunch break and get back to work or Uni with bragging rights intact.

Racketball is very similar to squash, but is played with a slightly larger racket and a bigger, bouncier ball, making it easy to get a rally going. This ensures a good workout for both players, so if you have never picked up a racket before, or the old wooden racket is gathering dust, grab a friend and get on court.
