What is squash?

Squash is a game the has to be played in a squash court. The game is played by two players whom both try to beat the other player. A point is won by making the ball bounce twice before the other player is able to reach it. Every game that is played on a squash court is till 11 points. The first player that reaches 11 points wins a game of squash.

Every game has to be won by 2 points difference. This makes the game extra exciting since it will be harder to win a game when you are 10-10 in the last game. Both players will be extremely tired at that stage and it will just keeps on getting harder to win a rally since the other player doesn’t want to lose the game.
