It's a game that does not tolerate hesitation.

Squash is the ideal test for mind and body. At once, both punishing and poetic. That's why we love it so much.

The Cambridge Club is unique in its focus on squash, both singles and doubles. Our pros design specialized programs to align with your level of play and will ensure you're at your competitive best, every match.

What you need to know

heart Why it's good for me

Squash helps to:

  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Increase strength and fitness
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Promote good coordination, agility, and flexibility
  • Build hand-eye coordination
clock Duration

We all know that the length of squash games can vary dependent upon the skill of the players, the temperature of the courts, and the scoring system. On average:

  • For beginners, a game will likely last around 20 minutes
  • For club players, a game lasts 40 minutes
  • Professional games often run approximately 60 to 90 minutes
barbell How to improve...

One of the best ways to become a better squash player is for you to become fitter. Consider trying circuit training, where you'll work a variety of muscles and improve your aerobic and anaerobic fitness. Also, try to incorporate yoga and Pilates into your training schedule.

heartbeat Frequency

How often you play squash depends on you and your fitness. Many Members play 2 - 3 times per week, while others train almost every day. However, you can play too much. Be sure you're taking enough rest to avoid injury.
