After a rule change in the mid-1980s, they are now almost always made of composite materials or metals (graphite, Kevlar, titanium, boron) with synthetic strings.
Modern rackets have maximum dimensions of 686 mm (27.0 in) long and 215 mm (8.5 in) wide, with a maximum strung area of 500 square centimetres (77.5 sq in).
Squash was invented in Harrow School out of the older game rackets around 1830 before the game spread to other schools, eventually becoming an international sport.The first courts built at this school were rather dangerous because they were near water pipes, buttresses, chimneys, and ledges. Natural rubber was the material of choice for the ball.Small colored dots on the ball indicate its dynamic level (bounciness), and thus the standard of play for which it is suited.The recognized speed colors indicating the degree of dynamism are: Some ball manufacturers such as Dunlop use a different method of grading balls based on experience.They are made with two pieces of rubber compound, glued together to form a hollow sphere and buffed to a matte finish.
Different balls are provided for varying temperature and atmospheric conditions and standards of play: more experienced players use slow balls that have less bounce than those used by less experienced players (slower balls tend to "die" in court corners, rather than "standing up" to allow easier shots).Women normally wear a skirt or skort and a T-shirt or a tank top, or a sports dress.The National Institutes of Health recommends wearing goggles with polycarbonate lenses.This platform does NOT host any content itself, we are a GATE between the censored users and the original websites we proxy.Squash is a ball sport played by two (singles) or four players (doubles) in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball.Depending on its specific rubber composition, a squash ball has the property that it bounces more at higher temperatures.
