Squash



  •  
    Squash was invented at Harrow school in England around 1830, when pupils discovered that a punctured Rackets ball, when 'squashed' on impact with a wall, produced a game with a greater variety of shots. Racket players, who, at the time, simply could not wait for the ball to bounce back to them, found that this variant of the game required much more effort. The game proved to be a smash hit and in 1864, the first four Squash courts were constructed at the school and Squash was officially founded as a sport in its own right.
