Squash is an intensive sport in which physical endurance is of great importance. It is related to tennis; it is a racket sport that is played by two persons. In contrary to tennis, squash players do not stand opposite, but next to each other and you can make use of the walls. There is no net in between the players and the (soft) ball is hit to the wall that is opposite of the players. Psst! Did you know that Tessa Ter Sluis, Dutch Champion ladies squash 2017, trains with us?
