Welcome to part 2 of our 'Why We Love Squash' series! This week's edition is a little different to last week...
After what feels like an eternity, squash is finally returning to Ontario on July 16th and we couldn't be happier here at Control The 'T' Sports.
I watched quite a few matches from the recent El Gouna International, which was again dominated by the Egyptian players.
I've been playing squash for around 15 years now and I've seen lots of changes and advances in coaching over the years in order to cater to the different playing styles.
Sometimes, squash training can get repetitive, mundane, and boring. Especially if you're always doing the same few exercises.
If there's one thing that pleases the crowd in professional squash, it's a crosscourt nick. It's a high-risk, high-reward shot, and it really gets people fired up.
Since I'm from the UK, I'm lucky enough to have been able to get back on the squash court recently.
Squash is often compared with chess. Being able to move your opponent around the court, attain a dominant position, and execute your strategy is the key to winning points, and ultimately, winning matches.
There's nothing more humiliating in squash than getting 'taxied' and there's nothing more satisfying in squash than 'taxi-ing' someone else! For those of you don't know, a taxi is basically showing that you're going to play one shot, but actually playing another shot and make your opponent run in the wrong direction.
