SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TENNIS AND SQUASH.
Squash is a sport that evolved from tennis and they have some similarities and differences. I’ll start with differences. Squash is played by hitting against the wall against another player in a 4-wall enclosed court indoors, while tennis is played with a net separating two side of opponents court and it’s usually outdoors. Squash's ball, in comparison, is much smaller but denser than tennis's ball. A squash racket has much more smaller racket face area than that of the tennis, but their shapes are quite similar. A squash match lasts shorter (usually 1.5 hours), unlike a tennis match can last more than 3 hours on many occasions.
Now some similarities. Both sports need balls to play and more than one player. Like tennis players, squash players can play single (two players) or double (four players). There are also out line, service line that share a court of these sports. Similarly, both players can use different types of hitting a ball (service, volley, with the rebound and smash). Like in tennis, both men and women can take part in squash.
