The general idea of squash is to keep hitting the ball against the front wall until your opponent fails to hit it back.
If the ball bounces twice, hits the floor or goes outside of the line, the rally is lost.
The player that scores 11 points first wins the game.
Games can be played by either two (singles) or four (doubles) players.
You must hit the ball within the boundaries on the back wall.
The ball can hit the side wall at any time as long as at some point it hits the back wall.
If a game gets to 10-10 then a player must win by two clear points to steal the game.
You cannot hit the ball twice or carry the ball.
When serving, one foot must be within the service box.
Whilst the key is to prevent your opponent from returning the ball, there are plenty of handy tricks you can use in order to make this more likely.
Our top tips for outsmarting your squash opponent...
Whether you’re just getting started on your squash skills, or a pro ready to get to the next level, add these squash drills to your workout three times a week to add some extra punch to your game...
Take to the squash courts for a spot of solo training. Work on your agility as your move between the centre T and the six points around the court.
Imagine you're in play, and push your body to move between the marks as fast as possible.
A strong core is key for maximising your squash skills. A great squash player has excellent balance and can maintain it as their weight shifts around the squash court.
Grab a stablity ball and lie face up, with your upper body in the centre. Keep your feet flat to the floor and your knees bent. Lift your feet and return, one at a time to work the core muscles.
The legs take a beating during a high impact game of squash. Strengthen your thighs, glutes and hamstrings with deep lunges.
Aim for three sets of 15 on each leg.
LET is called when a squash player accidently gets in their opponents way.
FOUL is called if the player purposely tries to get in the way of their opponent.
A BOAST is a shot hit to the near sidewall before it hits the front wall.
A RAIL is a squash ball hit for good length along a side wall.
