SquashSquash is one of the many racket sports that developed from tennis. Players hit a squash ball against the walls in an enclosed four-wall room to gain points form their opponents.

Racket sports and fives (a sport similar to the modern day squash where players hit the ball with their bare hand or in a glove rather than using rackets or other sporting goods) were popular in schools in France and England in the 1800’s but it is Harrow’s school in England where the sport credits its modern game.

The school was the first to build specialized courts for match play and the students modified their rackets to accommodate the small area.

The World Squash Federation (WSF) is the governing body for international squash. It has been working with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) since 1986 to make squash part of the Olympic Games. It continues its bids for the London 2012 and the 2018 Olympics. The Trinidad and Tobago Squash Association is the governing body for quash in this country.
