I’ve created several squash equipment lists and reports to help you browse and buy the latest products. These guides are constantly being added to and revised. To get an alert whenever I publish a major update, click here to subscribe to my newsletter.
Key Squash Equipment
You’ll need to pick up a few pieces of squash equipment before you can play. Here are my guides to the the essential items you’ll need:
Additional Squash Equipment
In addition, you may want to pick up some other items including:
- Squash Bag – something to hold all your newfound squash gear
- Squash Grips – an overgrip for your racquet handle to absorb sweat or increase the size of your grip
- Wristbands – to keep sweat off your hands and racquet
- Headbands – to keep sweat and hair out of your eyes and off your goggles
- Clothing – to look the part on court
- Replacement Strings – for when your original strings break
How to Try New Squash Equipment
If your club has a pro shop, that’s an excellent place to purchase equipment because you can try things out before buying them. You want to make sure whatever you buy feels comfortable — your racquet should feel good in your hand, and your shoes should feel good on your feet. A dizzying array of brands and options are available to you, and the simplest way to choose between them is to try things out in person first.
If you don’t have a local pro shop or sports store nearby, or you just want to explore some of the other options available to you, please do check out my guides above for help.
