squash

hello, we are the essex blades squash club


Squash is a fast paced sport in which two players hit a ball with a racket. The aim of the game is to beat the other player by hitting the front wall and making the ball bounce twice on the floor before they can hit their turn, or for them to hit the ball out of play.
