Squash is a racquet sport played in a four-walled court that can be played year-round by people of all ages, athletic abilities and fitness levels. Squash is a fun energetic sport that combines agility, stamina, strength, strategy, focus and mental toughness.

Playing squash is a high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout. On average players burn 750 calories per hour. A recent study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found participants in racket sports were healthier than participants in any other sport.

Squash is easy to learn and everyone can progress quickly to match play. More than 200 colleges and universities in the United States have courts. Seven of the eight Ivy League schools have a varsity squash team. Squash is growing in the United States with regular local/regional tournaments and lots of opportunities for summer enrichment.
