If you are looking for a great way to get fit, meet new people, and have fun, squash or racquetball could be the sport for you. To get started all you need is a ball, a racket, and a wall (or four!) Your local squash centre can provide all of these for you.
Squash provides an intense cardiovascular and muscular workout – perfect for burning calories. Players burn around 1000 calories per hour.
Racquetball is very similar to squash, but is played with a slightly larger racket and a bigger, bouncier ball, making it easy to get a rally going.
The rules for both sports are almost identical, and to put them simply, you hit a ball against a wall! It’s as easy as that, so don’t worry if you have never picked up a racket before, grab a friend and get on court.
There are approximately 40 South Australian clubs, recreation centres, universities and colleges with courts available for public use. Use our Court Finder to find a great facility in your local area.
