Squash (the sport)


#1

Played this for the first time yesterday and I am BROKEN today. Think I did something to my back. Really expected the ball to be bouncier than it is. Quite fun though. Am I officially an old sad bastard now?


#2

Or as it’s known to some, sboncen.


#3

Love a game of Wallbonk! :tennis:


#4

Two things:

a) you can play with a bouncier ball if you want, there’s different types
b) you’ll be fine after your first few games.

#6

It did always seem superior to tennis to me. Played indoors, less faffing with collecting the balls.


#7

There was A LOT of picking up the ball for me unfortunately.


#8

More of a fives man tbh

#10

I reckon the sport could be improved with a proper toy bouncy ball, and an unlimited number of bounces.


#11

It is quite Tory, isn’t it.


#12

Is that racketball? Genuine question - my knowledge of racketball is based entirely on popular hit movie (with troubling paedo undertones) Big…


#13

I used to play fives* :raised_hand:

*MASSIVE Tory…


#14

Never played, despite being very competent at racket sports in general.


#15

I always associate squash with proper 80s yuppies and very short , tight white shorts

Got quite the mental image of HYG going - sweatbands are involved


#16

I’ve played this about four or five times now. Was enjoying it until I fell over. Have since split with the person I played with but would definitely play again. Fun innit.


#17

Prefer racquet ball


#18

Stick some Roxy Music on before a game to really get in the mood.


#19

highest % of utter cunts playing it of any sport - perhaps even higher than polo.


#20

This game is getting sexier by the minute.
