Squash is a high-speed racquet sport played by two players (or in doubles 4 players on court at a time) in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball.
The game was formerly called squash racquets, a reference to the “squashable” soft ball used in the game. An effort is underway to qualify squash as an event in the 2020 Olympic Games.
