Over 5000 courts around the UK.
The game is played on a squash court and with thousands of courts around the UK the core infrastructure is already in place. England Squash quoted participation figures in the region of 500,000 people playing either squash or racketball regularly in the UK and the sport is rapidly expanding throughout the world and will continue to do so in the future.
A sport that comes naturally.
The game is easy for beginners. The rackets are very short making it a simple game to play as the eye, hand, ball coordination is as easy as hitting the ball with one’s hand rather than trying to judge the distance between the hand and head of a squash, badminton or tennis racket.
Longer rallies means more fitness.
The ball is very bouncy and does not need warming before normal play. The lower intensity and slower pace of movement required by the player allows older or less agile players to hold longer rallies without the risk of further injury. This often means many ex-squash players convert to racketball due to injury or reduced mobility or just for longer rallies.
