Squash was first used to train artillery regiments in the Civil War, whose members would roll cannons back and forth and across the court, blasting iron orbs off the walls while the others tried to catch the rebounding ball in their barrels. For $12, today's deal gets you two hours of less-explosive, contemporary racket-based squash play from San Diego Squash, a $30 value. This deal includes a rental racket, goggles, and shoes. San Diego Squash welcomes all racketeers regardless of skill level to come acquire or refine squash skills at their Sorrento Mesa courtcastle.
The four-court, international-regulation facilities are open seven days a week at various hours, giving athletes ample opportunity to storm the walls. The three experienced, professional squashers on staff will always abide in setting up matches for all levels as well as special events, including league play and tournaments. Aside from the shining floors and shower-equipped locker rooms, San Diego Squash keeps a fully stocked bar and deli with televisions and free WiFi. Their video-analysis court allows players to duke it out under the all-seeing eye of the video camera and roll it back in slow motion to pick apart technique or prove cantankerous opponents wrong.
Squash is similar to racquetball but features different equipment and rules. With smaller balls and courts than racquetball, it's a lightning-paced highly active sport that pushes the body and mind to their rubbery limits. Privileging fleet feet and cooperative hands and eyes, rather than sheer muscle mass and the capacity to make Ah-nold noises, squash is a unisex game that's easy to get into and difficult to master—especially when your opponent is a wall. They're indomitable.
