Rules to play Squash
Squash is a racquet sport played by two players in a four walled court.
1. Squash equipment
Squash is played between two players on a squash court each using a standard racket, and a ball approved by England Squash & Racketball.
2. Scoring
Matches are the best of 3 or 5 games, at the option of the competition organiser. Each game is point a rally scoring to 11 (PAR 11). If the score in a game is tied at 10 10, a player must win by 2 clear points.
3. How to win points
Points can be scored by either player. When a player fails to serve or to return the ball, in accordance with the rules, the opponent wins the point. When the Receiver wins a point, they become the Server and add one to their score.
4. Service
a) The right to serve is decided by the spin of a racket or coin. Thereafter the Server continues to serve until they lose the point; the opponent then becomes the Server.
b) At the beginning of each game and each rally, the Server has the choice of serving from either service box and shall thereafter alternate for as long as they score points and remains the Server.
c) The ball must be served direct on to the front wall between the service line and the out line, so that on its return, unless volleyed, its first bounce lands within the back quarter of the court opposite to the Servers box.
d) A service is a fault
(i) If at the time of striking the ball the Server fails to have at least one foot in contact with the floor within the service box, and no part of that foot touching the line surrounding the service box (called a foot fault ).
(ii) If after releasing the ball the Server fails to strike it before the ball falls to the floor, touches a wall, or touches anything the server wears.
(iii) If the Server fails to strike the ball directly onto the front wall between the service and the out lines.
(iv) Unless volleyed by the Receive, the first bounce of the ball on the floor is not in the quarter court opposite the serves box.
(v) If the Server serves the ball out.
5. Play
After a good service has been delivered, the players return the ball alternately until one or the other fails to make a good return, or the ball otherwise ceases to be in play, in accordance with the rules.NB If any part of the ball touches the out line the ball is deemed out or if the ball hits the tin or the floor on its second bounce the ball is deemed down. Similarly, if the ball bounces on or before the short line from a service, the serve is deemed a fault.
