Why Play Squash?
Squash is one of the most athletic sports in the world. Beyond just being great fun, new benefits of the game are discovered every day.
A Forbes magazine study in 2003 indicated that squash was the healthiest sport in the world. In one hour of squash, a player can expend between 600 to 1000 calories. Squash is affordable, easy to play, accessible, builds muscular strength and endurance, and is an excellent cardiovascular workout.
