What is squash?

Squash is an indoor sport suitable for people of any skill or ability. It can be enjoyed by people who have never played much sport before, and those who play many sports every week. The key is its simplicity.

The sport can be described as running with a racquet. Two players run around a small room, hitting a small bouncy rubber ball off the walls and floor. The aim is to hit the ball in such a way that the other player can’t return it. That’s about it.

You can start playing games with a very low level of fitness and sporting ability. Of course, if you keep playing, you will get much fitter and more able!

To give you a calm and relaxed start to squash, we have specialised programs for men, women and teenagers to teach the basic skills in a supportive and friendly environment. It doesn't take long to get the hang of playing squash, but you can play it your whole life and never master it. And your life will probably be a bit longer because of it!

Get fit the fun way with squash!

Getting more exercise is something many of us know we should do, but it just seems too hard to achieve. No one disputes that regular exercise can improve sleep, decrease weight, alleviate depression, strengthen bones and reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and breast cancer. Yet many of us aren’t as active as we would like.

Sure, running repeated laps of an oval or swimming from one end of a pool to the other will help, but it can just seem too hard and boring.

The secret to getting fit and staying fit is to find an activity that you want to do week after week. Something fun you can do with friends, something that remains playfully challenging over time, and can provide the reward of winning. Something you can do when it’s raining, and when it’s 40 degrees outside.

If this appeals to you, try squash!

Mildura Squash Inc. – Autumn Pennant 2019 – Grand Final / Finals Report

Results Sheets: Div 1 Grand Final Result SheetDiv 2 Grand Final Result Sheet

Point “O” Five won a thrilling Division 1 Premiership contest against Undecided by only 1 game to take out the Autumn Pennant 2019.

The night started strong for Point “O” Five as Father / Son match up of Wayne Sparks and Zac Sparks took the court, senior Sparks (Wayne) was calm under pressure and scored the first rubber winning in 3 well played games against a solid effort from junior Sparks (Zac).

Donna Fisher took the court against a very consistent and most improved Wade Stephens. The crowd where treated to a solid match of cat and mouse as players looked to get the upper hand. Stephens (Undecided) took the 1st game, however it was Fisher (Point “O” Five) who knew if she could just tighten up her game, she could earn a game or even un upset win. Fisher was able to win the 2nd game going all the way to 17-16. Looking a little mentally tiered she (Fisher) was not able to continue with the same vigour as was her effort for the 2nd game, as Stephens got on top in the match and earned victory in 4 games to level the rubbers up at 1-1

The crowd knew this was going to make other results very close as it was looking like the night would go down to the wire. Jeannette Vear was ruthless as she accounted for Steve Pongrac in 3 games giving Point “O” Five a 2nd rubber and 1 game advantage. Some quick calculations where made, and it was known that even if the final rubber went the way of Kevin Healy (Undecided) who defeated Doug Garsed in 3 games as was predicted, the match was still played at a high level.

Once the scores had been finalised it was clear that the great effort of a consistent and steady team of Point “O” Five come out on top as the Division 1 Premiers.

In the 3 / 4 Play Off it was 4 rubbers to nil win for Hard Knutts over CC’s & Dried. Paul Takacs was able to account for Gary Callaway in 3 games. A marathon effort by Michael Penna saw him get a win over Chris Stamos in 5 games. Graeme Whyte had a walkover win against Simon Morrison and Chris Tassone was to good for Cameron Whyte winning in 3 games.

Division 1 Results:

Grand Final: (3) Point “O” Five 2.7.162 def (2) Undecided 2.6.158, (Doug Garsed 0.0.22 lt Kevin Healy 1.3.45, Wayne Sparks 1.3.45 def Zac Sparks 0.0.32, Donna Fisher 0.1.50 lt Wade Stephens 1.3.61, Jeannette Vear 1.3.45 def Steve Pongrac 0.0.20)

Play Off 3 / 4: (1) Hard Knutts 4.12.210 def (4) CC’s & Dried 0.2.126, (Paul Takacs 1.3.47 def Gary Callaway 0.0.34, Michael Penna 1.3.73 def Chris Stamos 0.2.59, Graeme Whyte 1.3.45 w/o Simon Morrison 0.0.0, Chris Tassone 1.3.45 def Cameron Whyte 0.0.33)

In Division 2, it was the solid Team Three who scored Division 2 Premiership honours over Team Two winning 2 rubbers to 1.

Gloria Jago started the night well for Team Three as she was able to use the colder conditions to take advantage of a slower more precision style of game play to defeat her fast hard hitting opponent in Chris Edlington to win in 4 games and get a 1 rubber to nil lead.

Michelle Le Roux (Team Three) was in a battle against opponent in Chelsea Thornton (Team Four) with the crowd treated to an amazing match that when for well over 1 hour on court. Thornton was able to play some crucial winning shots at vital points in each game to get the upper hand and at the end of very entertaining effort, gave her team every chance of winning after she (Thornton) won the 5 game thriller and levelled the night at 1 rubber each.

Players from both teams knew that the winner of the final match up would take premiership honours. Natalina Mammone showing no sign of nerves against opponent Heather Laity was able to close out a great team win as she won in 3 games against Laity. Team Three certainly the most consistent team of the Autumn Pennant 2019 deserved a very solid win.

In the 3 / 4 Play Off it was Team One defeating Team Four 2 rubbers to nil. Fill In young junior Grace Sparks has made great improvement and was able to get a good win in 5 games against Kane Woolfrey. Chelsea Thornton filling in for the injured Maz Valentino was able to score the 2 rubber for Team One as she defeated Helen Munro in 3 solid games.

Healthiest Sport in the World

Forbes Magazine found squash to be the healthiest sport in the world.

"The preferred game of Wall Street has convenience on its side, as 30 minutes on the squash court provides an impressive cardiorespiratory workout. Extended rallies and almost constant running builds muscular strength and endurance in the lower body, while lunges, twists and turns increase flexibility in the back and abdomen."

The Ultimate Fitness Sport

Men’s Health Magazine calls squash “the ultimate fitness sport.” 

No other sport tests your range of movement and acceleration like squash, so the correct warm-up is crucial,” says David Pearson, national coach with England Squash. Pearson prescribes 5 minutes of dynamic flex drills: “Warm-up with alternate arm rolls, ankle flicks, high knees, walking lunges and squats. This encourages higher blood flow through your joints to minimize injury risk and up the intensity and calorie burn on court.” Even if you do look like you’re an employee of The Ministry of Funny Walks while you do it."

Excellent All-Round Health Benefits

Britain’s National Health Service advises “regularly playing squash gives excellent all-round health benefits.”

"Regularly playing squash gives excellent all-round health benefits, particularly for the heart and lungs. Squash can help build strong muscles in the legs and buttocks. 
The sport requires quick movements and lunges, which improves muscle tone. Moving to and hitting a moving ball also helps strengthen the back and shape the tummy."
