(iii) If the Server fails to strike the ball directly onto the front wall between the service and the out lines.
(iv) Unless volleyed by the Receive, the first bounce of the ball on the floor is not in the quarter court opposite the serves box.
(v) If the Server serves the ball out. .....

5. After a good service has been delivered, the players return the ball alternately until one or the other fails to make a good return, or the ball otherwise ceases to be in play, in accordance with the rules.NB If any part of the ball touches the out line the ball is deemed out or if the ball hits the tin or the floor on its second bounce the ball is deemed down. Similarly, if the ball bounces on or before the short line from a service, the serve is deemed a fault. .....
A Good Return
6. A return is good if the ball, before it has bounced twice on the floor, is returned by the striker on to the front wall above the tin, without touching the floor or any part of the strikers body or clothing, provided the ball is not hit twice, down or out. .....
Lets

(a) A let may be allowed
(i) If the striker refrains from hitting the ball owing to a reasonable fear of injuring the opponent.
(ii) If the striker, on the way to playing the ball incurs sufficient interference to impede their access to the ball when the striker would have otherwise played a good shot.
(iii) If the Referee is asked to decide an appeal and is unable to do so.
(b) A Let shall be allowed
(i) If the Receiver is not ready, and does not attempt to take the service.
(ii) If the ball breaks during play.
(iii) If an otherwise good return has been made, but the ball goes out on its first bounce.
iv) If the ball in play touches the receiver or anything carried or worn by the receiver whilst on the way to the side wall or back wall in anticipation that the ball would have reached the front wall and hence been a good return. .....
How strokes can be won
8. A player wins a stroke
a) If the server fails to make a good serve (See point 4 on the Service).
b) If the opponent fails to make a good return of the ball in play.
c) If the ball in play touches the opponent or anything carried or worn by the opponent whilst on the way to the front wall.
d) If a player drops the racket, calls out or in any other way distracts the opponent, and the Referee considers that such occurrence has caused the opponent to lose the stroke.
e) If the ball hits the ceiling or any object outside of the court. .....
Freedom to play the ball
9. After playing a ball, a player must make every effort to get out of the opponents way.
That is
(i) A player must make every effort to give the opponent a fair view of the ball, so that it may be sighted adequately for the purpose of playing it.
(ii) A player must make every effort not to interfere with, or crowd, the opponent in the latters attempt to get to, or play, the ball.
(iii) A player must make every effort to allow the opponent, as far as the latters position permits, freedom to play the ball directly to the front wall, or to either side wall. .....
Warm Up
10. Immediately preceding the start of play, a period not exceeding five minutes shall be allowed on court for the purpose of warming up. .....
Safety and Fitness
11. If your fitness is poor or you havent played Squash for some time, dont overdo it.
Remember, Squash is a fast game. If you have a rally which requires a lot of short sharp movement, it may take your body a moment or two before it realises that a lot of oxygen is needed for recovery.
This can result in a sudden increase in heart rate.
This is not a good thing for those who lack fitness. .....
About the Squash Serve
12. The server, with at least one foot in the service box, starts play by hitting the ball directly onto the front wall between the cut line and the outline to rebound so that, if allowed, it bounces for the first time in the opposite half of the court and behind the short line.It may hit another wall after hitting the front wall, providing the ball lands within the correct half court.The receiver may hit the ball on the full. If the server wins the rally they serve from the alternate service box.If the receiver wins the rally they choose which box to start serving from. .....
Return of Serve
13. While waiting to return the serve, watch the server to get an idea of
The type of Serve to expect.
The angle of the serve.
The speed of the serve.
all ofwhich will assist the racket preparation to return the ball.
Keep out of the back corner.
Keep away from the walls. .....
Rally between two players
14. The 2(or 4 for doubles) Squash players, each with a racket, take it in turns (for doubles, each team takes turns) to hit the ball onto the front wall within the large area defined by the outline at the top and the line marking the top of the tin at the bottom (the striker may play the ball onto the side or back walls first before it hits the front wall).The ball must stay within the court. The ball must be hit on the first bounce or volleyed.Play continues until the ball goes out or down or is hit after the first bounce. .....
International Scoring
15. A point is scored only when the server wins a rally.When the server loses a rally he or she loses the right to serve and the opponent becomes the server. When a point has been scored durng play, the server must serve from the opposite service box.The first player to nine points wins a game.A match usually consists of the best of five games; that is, the first player to win three games wins the match.If, in any game, the score reaches eight all, then the player who reaches 8 first, decides whether that game is to be played to nine (Set 1) or ten points (Set 2).The first player to reach the chosen number of points wins the game. .....
How to Record the Score
16. The procedure for marking a game
The Marker calls the Score.
The Score Sheet is divided into two sides, one side for each player.
Each side has an L and R marked in a box, which stands for Left and Right Service Box.
As the Server serves from the Right Box, the Scorers pencil points to Box R. The pencil stays in the box until the point is won or lost. The Servers score is always called first, eg 53 Smith serving or 3.5 Brown if Brown had won the point and was to serve.
The pencil would point to the appropriate service box.
Note There are two ways of scoring
1. Traditional Method The Server can only score points, and the first to 9 points wins.
2. PARS (Point a Rally) The winner of the rally wins the point, first to 11 points wins. .....
Basic Squash Skills
17. Hold the grip firmly at all times during the swing. Keep a firm wrist during the swing.Approach the ball from one side (usually from the side closest to the centre of the court). Right handed Squash players should try to play forehands on the right hand side of the court and play backhands on the left hand side of the court. (Reversed for left handers). .....
Basic Squash Tactics
18. Hit the ball away from your opponent, making them run.
Hit backhand shots on the backhand side of the court and forehands on the forehand side.
Hit the ball to the corners and close to the side walls.
Volley during play whenever possible. Return to the centre of the court quickly each time you make a return whilst watching the ball. .....
Basic Squash Rules
19. Once the ball has been struck, it is the responsibility of the striker to clear the way for the opponent to make a return.
If there is interference in the opponent reaching the ball, the players should play the point again (this is called playing a LET).
If your opponent is in the way of you making a return or is in danger of being hit in the process, a LET should be played.
Both the striker and the opponent should make every effort to clear the ball or to get to it if a LET is to be played.
If the player hits the ball back to themselves and hits them or goes very close to them, a STROKE is awarded to the opponent, winning the rally for them. .....
Squash Balls
20. There are a range of balls available for all standards.
The court temperature also plays a big part in Squash ball selection (In colder temperatures, you may need to use a bouncier ball).
The following Squash balls should be available in your area
Super Slow
Yellow Dot Slow
White or Green Dot Medium
Red Dot Fast
Blue Dot Fast
There is also an Extra Super Slow Double Yellow Dot ball used by professionals or by accomplished players in hotter countries. .....
Modified Equipment
21. Because squash is a very fast game and requires quick co ordinated reflexes the use of modified equipment (a shorter racket and larger ball) can help novices gain confidence, and have more enjoyment.Racket Ball and Mini Squash are games played on a squash court that might suit some players who are having difficulty managing the full size equipment. .....
The court
22. The squash court is a playing surface surrounded by four walls. The court surface contains a front line separating the front and back of the court and a half court line, separating the left and right hand sides of the back portion of the court, creating three boxes the front half, the back left quarter and the back right quarter. Both the back two boxes contain smaller service boxes. All of the floor markings on a squash court are only relevant during serves.

There are four walls to a squash court. The front wall, on which three parallel lines are marked, has the largest playing surface, whilst the back wall, which typically contains the entrance to the court, has the smallest. The out line runs along the top of the front wall, descending along the side walls to the back wall. There are no other markings on the side or back walls. Shots struck above or touching the out line, on any wall, are out. The bottom line of the front wall marks the top of the tin, a half metre high metal area which if struck means that the ball is out. In this way the tin can be seen as analogous to the net in other racquet sports such as tennis. The middle line of the front wall is the service line and is only relevant during serves. .....

Balls
23. Squash balls are unlike any other sports ball. The ball does not bounce until it is warmed up by hitting it hard 50 100 times. After that the ball reaches an equilibrium temperature and is quite bouncy. Unfortunately, you have to continue to hit the ball hard to keep it warm and lively.Since beginners and intermediate players can not hit hard and have long rallies, Dunlop offer four different type of squash balls. The difference among them is that they will bounce the same without having to hit them hard. .....
Racquet
24. There are dozens of racquets out there. Gone are the days of wooden and aluminium graphite. Almost any racquet made today is some composite of graphite and titanium. Therefore racquets are much lighter than ever before. With lighter racquets you get more control and its easier to work on the swing mechanics.Buy a racquet with an oversize head of 490 cm2 or greater head size. This will give you a larger sweet spot ( sweet spot is the center of the racquet head where maximum power and control is generated ) so that shots that are hit off center will still have power to them, though not much control. Smaller head racquets are more suitable for advanced players who are looking for control over power. Any racquet less than 180g would be suitable. Avoid a racquet that is too light (<130g) as it will have little power and make you use your wrist too much. Buy one that is durable and well balanced (not head heavy or head light) since you are likely to bang it against the floor and wall often. As you improve you will be able to control your swing on tight shots. .....
Eye protection
25. Eye protection is neccesary to protect your eyes from the ball and from the racquet. Wearing eye guards is mandatory in almost every pro tournament worldwide. Keep in mind that pros have spent their lives developing accurate shots with compact follow throughs. So if these players feel eye guards are important than you can be certain you should be wearing them too. .....
Shoes
26. For beginners it is best to buy shoes with plenty of shock absorption. Thin soled shoes or shoes with worn out soles should be avoided. Also do not wear running shoes as you are likely to sprain your ankle in them (no lateral stability and high sole increases twisting forces into your ankle should you sprain it). The Prince NFS shoe is often a highly recommended squash shoes. Otherwise there are dozens of squash shoe brands from Wilson, Addidas, Hi Tec, to name a few. .....
The squash grip
27. The proper squash grip is very counter intuitive. Instinct would tell you to grip the racquet with a clenched fist. The racquet has no control in the fore aft and side side motion with that type of grip. The proper squash grip has two subtle features that allow you to have full control over the head of the racquet. It is extremely important to master this grip early on otherwise you will be stroking the ball incorrectly and find it very difficult to play the touch shots that pros play with ease. Furthermore your game will suffer for several months as you try and fix your grip after developing bad habits. .....
