Squash

According to Forbes Magazine’s survey, squash is rated as the healthiest sport in the world.

Played on an indoor court, squash is a brutal sport. You have to be extremely quick to get to the ball but you also need to have great endurance and recovery to keep getting that ball back time and time again, especially when it can travel as fast as 270 kmh.

Whilst being a physical adonis, you also have to be as shrewd as a chess player, weighing up your shot options, the position of your opponent and more, all in a fraction of a second.

Spectators will have the opportunity to see this fast and furious game at the state-of-the-art Darwin Squash Centre in the Marrara Sporting Precinct.
