Spring is finally here and there’s never been a better time to take up sports. It’s also time to get active and get in shape after a long winter of hibernation.

With such pleasant sunshine, sports like squash, racketball, tennis, volley and softball hardly seem like a work – more like a fun hobby. But a hobby that will keep you fit and help you lose some weight for swim wear season.

Five reasons to take up sports like Squash


Fun for all

Squash is a fun game for all ages and abilities, from junior sessions to beginner sessions to over 50’s, there is an option for everyone. Plus they are both sociable sports, you can get a great workout and then enjoy a drink afterwards.

It’s flexible

You only need thirty minutes for a great all round work out, so even the busiest people can fit it in around work, family and other commitments. You can even squeeze a game in on your lunch break!

Works every muscle group

Squash and Racketball can help to build strong, shapely leg and bum muscles – the sport requires lots of dynamic lunging to give you that toned look! Moving to and hitting a ball that is also moving also helps strengthen the back and shape the abdominals.

Burns calories

Squash and Racketball are great alternatives to visiting the gym, you can burn around 650 calories per hour on court and not even realise you are doing so.

Easy to get started

There are 5,000 courts in England in clubs, leisure centres, universities and colleges. Access can be very easy – 40% of courts are owned by local authorities and are easily booked – equipment is often available for hire and is inexpensive to buy.

The Big Hit is a national campaign running throughout 2013 to encourage more people to get involved in sports like squash and racketball for fun and fitness. It is successfully transforming some of the most valuable retail space in the country into a ‘pop up’ squash shop’s.

After the success of the original unit in Manchester’s Corn Exchange last month, Westfield squash shop Westfield will be open from 12.00 to 20.00 every Thursday to Sunday throughout the whole of May 2013.
