Cheap Squash Rackets
Here are the cheap squash rackets I've posted recently.
I mean cheap in the cost sense. Cheap squash rackets are often pretty thick and therefore durable.
Cheap squash rackets are usually heavier than a top-shelf squash racket. Is that bad? Not necessarily. Heavier rackets are more difficult to whip through the air quickly, and tough to make last-second adjustments with. But if you're a beginner, these things aren't as important, because you're still working on grooving a basic swing anyway.
Why get an inexpensive squash racket? Often these are a good starting point for beginners who want to try out squash or play once in a while but don't want to spend a ton of cash.
