Be ready the next time your friend challenges you to a game with your own squash racket. Look for equipment designed for beginners or even kids. Check the weight to ensure it is comfortable in your hand. An extra-light head will have a faster swing.
Check out the grip and composition for the right fit. Many rackets are made of aluminum to be lightweight. Sturdy strings with a heavy enough gauge are also important. Master the game with a high-quality squash racket.
