Squash easily compares to some of the most intense, energetic workouts out there and is known for challenging players’ agility, strength and balance. At the same time, it is a fun, social sport that anyone can play, regardless of age and skill level. It is very easy to learn, but those looking to truly master it must really push themselves to the limit in more ways than one.
Like other racquet sports, squash helps players improve their motor skills, eyesight, and social skills, and is known to reduce the risk of heart disease by strengthening the heart muscles and lowering blood pressure. Giving players an intense full body workout, it also strengthens back muscles and wrists. In addition to the physical benefits, as a game that demands focus and strategy, squash has a variety of cognitive benefits as well and can improve players’ concentration in other areas of life.

It’s obvious that the future of sports, technology and fitness are going to be increasingly connected, our company wants to be at the forefront of that wave.'
