London is the birthplace of squash, with the game originating in Harrow. Squash is a fast racket sport with the ball reaching speeds of up to 170 miles per hour. Matches take place on a small indoor court however; some competitions are held in specially built outdoor glass courts. The game is hugely popular and played in places as diverse as Pakistan, Egypt, France and Australia. Top players require good levels of cardio fitness and hand eye co-ordination.
The first players used rubber balls, which, when hit, squashed against walls (hence the name “squash”).
GET in touch to compete
To get involved in open competitions, you will need to contact the Borough Team Organiser (BTO) in your borough or via the LYG App where you can register your interest.
Only a BTO or nominated Team Manager can enter a team into a competition. A borough can enter any number of Borough/ Open/ Schools competitions with a maximum of 1 team per competition.
A competitor is eligible to represent a borough if they are a resident or attend a school or college of further education in that borough. You cannot represent more than one borough in the same competition but competitors are allowed to compete for different boroughs in different competitions.
