Anyone play Squash?
« on: September 19, 2016, 09:35:09 AM »

Does anyone play squash?
With the new squash season starting in a few weeks time I am wondering does anyone play squash on TNMS.

I can play up to 5 times a week playing mates and training, trying to get better, it is a very addictive sport. The team I play for has its first club game in October 5, so trying to get my fitness up with running, rowing and spinning. Hard work.

So any other squash players?

Not any more, but I play golf with this feller, who is rather good:-

Apparently he is number 3 in the world now or something daft for over 35's

Possibly the worst putter of a ball I have ever seen in my life, which is odd as normally racket sport pl;ayers are decent golfers

I am also awful at golf and pretty good at squash! I have coaching from a chap who was ranked 167 in the world and is still in his twenties, and when he gets going wow, the control he puts on the ball is astonishing,both the speed and spin.

ow that's painful. I also tore my calf muscle once, I remember a bang as if a shot gun had gone off and thought the the guy I was playing had hit my calf with his racket. Then the pain hit me and I fell over. Lucky for me it has not happened for 10 years.


Do you just play with your mates? internal leagues? or county squash?

As in ''lets forget this and go down the chip shop!" ;D

Used to play to club standard squash many years ago and also table tennis in the Cheltenham leagues. Havn't played either for about 30 years but am thinking about taking up table tennis again.

Just played a pre season Friendly with a Lilleshall's First division and Second Division teams against our First Division and third Division team. Then down the pub for food and Beer.  20 people playing squash in three and a half hour tournament, brilliant fun.

The season starts in 2 weeks time!

Genuine question out of curiosity as someone who likes to keep in shape: isn't squash "dangerous" and not recommended for, say, the over 35s..?  It seems notorious for having a bit of a high mortality rate...or is that just a myth?

Thoughts?
