Squash is a unique sport and is also their players too, all the squash players vary in their purpose of practicing the sport, some people practice it once a week, while others cannot leave the court and do it every day; Some others do it twice a day. This interest in sport can go beyond and become an obsession. And I found that there is no age for the person who becomes addicted to squash.
