Squash is a racquet sport played by two (singles) or four players (doubles) in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. The players must alternate in striking the ball with their racquet and hit the ball onto the playable surfaces of the four walls of the court.
Squash provides an excellent cardiovascular workout giving good upper body flexability and lower body strength. In 2003 Forbes magazine rated Squash as the number one healthiest sport to play.
