Equipment

A pair of indoor non-marking shoes, a racket, a ball and you’re good to go! For juniors, wearing eyewear is mandatory in clubs and during competitions.

Balls

There is a ball for every level in squash. More bouncy for the beginners so more time to go to the ball. There are four types of squash ball:

  • Pro balls are used by elite players and feature distinctive double yellow dot markings
  • Competition balls are ideal for regular/club level players and have a single yellow dot
  • Progress balls are for improving or recreational players. Slightly larger, with more bounce, these are plain black
  • Max balls are larger and bouncier so good for beginners and are black with a blue dot.
