Squash is a fast-moving high-impact sport that provides an excellent cardiovascular workout suitable for all ages. As squash is a strenuous sport, in which a player can use a lot more energy than they would in most other sports, it has enormous health benefits.

These include:

  • Improve cardiovascular health; a game of squash will see you running, leaping and diving for the ball
  • Increase strength and fitness
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Increase flexibility and strength in the back
  • Promote good coordination, agility and flexibility
  • Build hand–eye coordination.

Squash also has many other benefits including:

  • Improved general and psychological wellbeing
  • Better social skills and an opportunity to make new friends
  • Improved concentration
  • Stress release
  • All weather activity – as it’s an indoor sport, weather conditions don’t prevent you from playing.
