Well, here we go, this is our first Arun Squash Club Blog! We will see how it goes, but I will try and post a message once a month to keep members up to date with what's happening at the club, with a few snippets of information about the sport we all love to play. If there is anyone at the club that wants to contribute to this Blog, please let me know, I can give you access to post your own messages about whatever you feel you would like to share with all the folks out there.

So far so good, it has been another successful squash season, with lots of new faces and keen people joining the club. Not to mention a few old ones coming back from injury, work commitments or just having a break. Or maybe, they noticed that middle aged spread taking hold around their waistline....I will leave you to be the judge of that when you see them next on court.

There have been lots of good things happening at the club this year that it is hard to remember them all. So I will try and pick some of my highlights.

Choosing the right squash racket PDF Print E-mail

It’s been said that your squash racket is like an extension of you arm, so you can see why it is so important to find the right squash racket that suits your style of play, or is it?

When you buy a squash racket for the first time you may not be thinking of the weight, balance, head size, strings and grip. But then again, why should you? As long as the racket looks and feels good to you personally, then the chances are that you will probably play well with it, for a while at least. However, as you improve all these factors may help you to decide which racket best suites your playing style.

Racket weight

Generally heavyweight rackets are > 160g, mid-weight rackets are between 160g and 140g and finally lightweight rackets are usually < 140g. To add to the confusion most weights shown on rackets are unstrung, and with the strings these rackets can weigh a little bit more. But as a general rule the heaver a racket the more power you get on the shot. The lighter a racket the more control and feel you get when playing a shot. Technology has moved on, and in recent years lighter rackets using more sophisticated materials can produce the same amount of power as some of the heavier rackets, with better feel and control. A winning combination you may think, but this comes at a price, and if you are just starting out you may not even notice the difference. So bear this in mind when you buy your first racket.
