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 2018 – Grand Final Report

IMG 0850
IMG 0851

Brighter Whites shined brightest to defeat Team Three 3 rubbers to 1 and take out the Autumn Pennant 2018 Division 1 Premiership.

The night started strong for Brighter Whites as Michael Penna took the advantage early against opponent Chris Tassone winning in 4 games. (Penna) won the first 2 games to lead 2-0 before Tassone found some good ball striking to take the third game and it looked like a fight back was on. However, it was the speed and endurance of the younger Penna scoring the win.

Young gun Zac Sparks took to the court and Team Three Martin Hawson was looking for revenge after a defeat in the first final. The match started at a frantic pace and never disappointed. Sparks was not going to be denied a victory chasing every ball and seemingly had the ball on a string to cause a massive win in 3 games to hand Brighter Whites a 2 rubbers to nil lead.

In what can only be described as a near disaster for Brighter Whites, when the number 1s stepped on court, number 4 Simon Morrison was missing. A phone call was needed to remind him that the Grand Final was on and he would need to be on his way to the courts to play, if the result didn’t go the way of team Brighter Whites.

Paul Takacs (Brighter Whites) looking in good form was not going to take any chances against an always dangerous opponent in Gary Callaway. The first game was solid with Takacs taking the lead 1 nil. Still needing a victory to secure the premiership for Brighter White (Takacs) put the foot down, and command of the match, to win in 3 games and seal victory with an unbeatable 3 rubbers to nil lead.

Still with no Morrison in sight opponent Michael Bacon (Team Three) was happy to claim a forfeit win as his opponent was longer than the 10 minutes after previous match completion rule, none the less the result was secure for Brighter Whites capping off a great team effort all season.

Morrison arrived and still not knowing the results was informed by the team that he was not required to play, as the result was in his team favour and the look of relief on his face was “priceless” as commented by Zac Sparks once told that Brighter Whites had won the premiership.

In Division 2, an upset was on the cards in the Grand Final as team De-Faults full of confidence had the fire power to take on the top in Killer Whales in the end it was a close 1 game win to Killer Whales to take home the Division 2 premiership.

Te-Ahna Bacon started the night well for the Killer Whales with a solid win over the much-improved Heather Laity, winning in an entertaining 3 games. Izaak Luitjes having had a stellar season was able to level the grand final at 1 rubber a piece as he was able to with stand a shaky start against crafty opponent in Charlotte Fisher winning in 3 games to tie the grand final for his team (De-Faults)

Next on court was Jake Wilson (De-Faults) with great form to finish the season it looked like De-Faults could be amid an upset grand final win. The first game against opponent Daniel Harberger (Killer Whales) would prove to be crucial, hard and fast going all the way to 17-14 with Harberger winning. Wilson fought extremely hard to win the next game to level at 1-1. With all the momentum it was Wilson finishing strongest, handing team De-Faults a 2 rubber to 1 lead with the number 1’s to step on the court. None the less it would be the 1 game from Harberger that would be vital in the final result.

Megan Spinks in her farewell match before moving out of the district was up against long term best friend Emily Herrmann who had filled in for the injured De-Faults number 1 in Chris Edlington for the finals series in the final and deciding rubber. It was going to be a battle of nerve, Spinks with all to do to get her team the Premiership victory needing a win in 3 games to secure premiership glory. Spinks won the first game in a thrilling 17-14 and then capitalised in the second game winning 15-10 to get a 2 nil lead. Herrmann had put up a good fight but couldn’t match the power hitting of a determined Spinks who secured victory in the 3rd game and the premiership glory for Killer Whales.

Megan Spinks 1.3.47 def Emily Herrmann 0.0.29

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."
