Calling all squash players - Raquet help.

Discussion in 'Training, Fitness and Health' started by Absinthe Minded, 1 Feb 2008.

  1. Hello all,

    I'm new to the game and I like it enough to buy a raquet. Now, what should I get - I want something nice, but bear in mind that I'm new to the sport so the poor thing might get belted off of a wall.

    Advice appreciated.

    Thanks, MP. Very helpful of you. So, anything else to look for, i.e. brand, price?

    Cool, so I can get a good raquet for under a score. Thanks, and have a good weekend.

    More advice from anyone else would be welcome!

    Get the cheapest you can at first,with the biggest face,as it will probably be destroyed after your first few games,hitting the wall and floors as you try to get those balls close to them,then when your getting a bit better at it,get a another one,but maybe go for a dearer one this time.

    I'll second Sportsworld. I was in your position about a year ago Absinthe and went in and a bought a Dunlop carbon one for £25, not realising what I'd bought -just thinking I'd got a reasonable value raquet that wasn't the very cheapest. My more experienced squash playing mates were amazed at my new raquet and couldn't believe how much I'd paid for it.
