Squash Court Construction and Features

Squash is one of the few setback games in which the players share the playing field and in which the sidewalls of the playing field are included in the game. In the best-case scenario, a softball is played against the wall in such a way that the opponent can no longer reach it. The ball is also the namesake of the game: squash means something like punching, squeezing, or pressing hard. Squash sport has a multitude of rules that we want to bring you closer to with this article.

At the beginning in the UK they played a simple setback game called "Open Court Rackets" at the "Harrow School", in which they played with a hardball. Squash served as a warm-up exercise in which the players played warmly with a softball. They discovered that this softball had to be played with a lot more technical skill and the game began to spread to universities.


Squash Rules at A Glance

You can play singles or doubles. A serve must touch the wall above this line. From the middle of the transverse line, a vertical center-line runs backward, which divides the field behind the transverse line. Inside squash ball has hollow and contains a drop of liquid gas. The service must come from one of the two service fields and be played directly the front wall above the service line. The service side changes after each point are won. As soon as the player with the right to serve loses a rally, there is a change of service (comparable to volleyball).


In addition to serving, there are several ways to play the ball during a rally: the basic stroke is the long-line, in which you hit the ball straight and straight against the front wall and it flies straight back again. With a boast, you hit the ball over the sidewalls against the front wall. Ideally, the ball hits the front wall just above the tin and then falls onto the edge between the sidewall and the floor (nick). For the cross, you hit the ball directly against the front wall so that it bounces back at a V-shaped angle. With the volleyball, you can speed up the game. As a rule, the referee positions himself outside the field of play on the back wall of the court, if possible he takes a seat on a high seat.

The way the score is counted in squash is based on squash rules in the "point-a-rally" system, which is also used in volleyball. Each rally results in a point either for the player with the right to serve or for the receiver: the one who wins the rally receives the point. The game is played in sets of up to 11 points, but a set can only be won with a difference of two points. In addition, there are some safety issues you should keep in mind while playing. Mutual consideration is particularly important.
