How to Get Your Kids Playing Squash

I recently put together this video discussing how I’ve gone about trying to get my kids interested in playing squash. As of this video, they’re 8 and 10 years old: As I was publishing that video, I remembered I wrote a similar post when the kids were younger. The specifics are a little different because of their ages, but my general philosophy seems to have remained largely the same! Here’s the original post from 2011: Read more…

Squash Bag

Tecnifibre Squash Green Bags

These are coming out in April 2018. There’s a 12-racket bag and a 9-racket bag. Looks like they have added a squash-specific holding area for your balls and goggles, while also increasing the ventilation area, so your stank can dissipate more quickly.   Tecnifibre Squashbag Green 12R               Tecnifibre Squashbag Green 9R               Tecnifibre Squashbag Green Backbag             Read more…

Squash Goggles

Squash Goggles

Squash goggles protect your face and eyes while playing squash. Here are some brands of squash goggles I’ve posted about on 24squash.com: Squash Goggles Why Wear Squash Goggles?

I wonder if Salming is consolidating them into a single strain, the Race X. Personally I think that is a good call — much simpler.

Dunlop Force Evolution 130

The Dunlop Force Evolution 130 is new for 2015, and is replacing last year’s Dunlop Biomimetic Evolution 130 in the Dunlop lineup.

I weighed both rackets (strung), and the 130 was only two grams heavier than the 120, Read more…
