SQUASH HAS A NEW FAN... ME!
I am definitely a newbie in squash, but I love the game! It tests attention, strength and stamina, while also being fun to play.
Squash is as old as the 16th century, originating in France. The squash racquet is smaller than the tennis one, and there are 5 types of balls, depending on the speed at which you want to play, thus giving you the possibility to play "differently" each time. There are two scoring systems, the English and the American one, but what's more important is that it is an excellent cardiovascular workout. In one hour it burns between 600 and 1000 calories and that is more than most other sports. Well, that just leads me to renewing my subscription :)
