Squash Rules

Squash rules can appear daunting but you can get help by reading World Squash articles below or THE RULES OF SQUASH Singles and Doubles.

Derek Advises
Squash is more fun if you can keep going but when in doubt, stop and ask for a let. Most games are between friends and no-one wants to inflict an injury (well almost no-one!).

  • Once you have hit the ball, get out of your opponents way
  • When it is your turn, you can move in a direct line to the ball;
    it is then your opponents job to get out of your way.

If you turn and strike the opponent with the ball, you LOSE the stroke.
