A good friend of mine first introduced me to squash in 2010 while we were both in school. The Arthur Currie Gymnasium at McGill University had recently been renovated to include 7 new international courts, where I spent my early days learning the game. However, tucked away in the older sections of the facility, there were courts which seemed to be narrower and had sidelines which were step-wise rather than angled uniformly. Initially I shrugged off these differences and assumed that these were just old-fashioned, out of date courts which were only to be used when the newer courts were unavailable. However, after a little more exposure, I’ve come to realize that these courts in fact were for Hardball Squash.
