The court size was codified in the 1920s at 975 cm (32 feet) and 640 cm (21 feet) wide. The front wall has a “front wall line”, 457 cm (15 feet) above the floor, connected by a raking “front” line meeting the “out” line on the back wall at 213 cm (7 feet) above the floor. The front wall also has a “service line” whose top is 183 cm (6 feet) above the floor with the “board” (the equivalent of a net) 48 cm (18.9 inches) high. The floor is marked with a transverse “halfcourt” line and further divided into two rear “quarter courts” and two “service boxes”, as shown in the diagram.

For Your Information

The basic strategy of the sport is to hit the ball straight up the side walls to the back corners referred to as a straight drive, wall, or “length”.
Attacking with soft or “short” shots to the front corners, also known as ‘drop shots’, causes the opponent to cover more of the court and may result in an outright winner.
‘Angle’ shots are used for deception and again to cause the opponent to cover more of the court.
A skilled player sometimes attempts to finish rallies by hitting the ball at an angle onto the front wall and into an area known as the ‘nick’ i.e. the junction between the side wall and floor, which if done properly will cause the ball to roll out along the floor and be unreturnable.

Ball Specification:

Balls are 39.5 mm and 40.5 mm in diameter, and weigh between 23 and 25 grams. They are made with two pieces of rubber compound, glued together to form a hollow sphere and buffed to a matte finish.
The small coloured dots on the squash ball indicate the level of bounciness and hence, the standard of play it is suited for the recognized colours and ‘speeds’ are as given below:
Double Yellow – Extra Super slow
