Singles, Doubles, Mixed. 5 Golds. Reflex. Fitness. Speed.
Squash is a highly energetic racquet sport that requires outstanding levels of fitness, combined with a deft touch for precise ball placement within the enclosed field of play.
In this traditionally strong Commonwealth sport, athletes will contest individual Men’s and Women’s Singles events and pair up across Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Doubles competitions, where the width of the court is increased to allow for four players.
Competition will take place at Scotstoun Leisure Centre, where new permanent courts will be utilised in preliminary rounds.
Medal matches will take place under the lens of a purpose-built glass-walled show court, providing spectators with viewing angles from all four sides.
Expect pace, excitement and a masterful display of skills and stamina.
Watch out for: Since the introduction of Squash to the Games in 1998, Australia and England have fought for the majority of medals, but watch out for talented athletes from Malaysia, New Zealand, India and Pakistan.
