Squash is a racket sport played by two players in a four-walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball. The objective of the game is to hit the ball against the front wall in such a way that the opponent is unable to return it, and to keep the ball within the court boundaries. Points are awarded only when the server wins the rally.

The players take turns serving, and each rally starts with a serve from one player. The ball must be served from the service box and land in the opposite quarter court. After the serve, players can move freely around the court and hit the ball in an attempt to win the rally. Points are scored when a player wins a rally and the opponent is unable to return the ball, or if a player hits the ball out of bounds.

Squash is a fast-paced and physically demanding sport that requires quick reflexes, agility, and good hand-eye coordination. It is often played in singles (one player per court) or doubles (two players per court). The game can be played informally or in a more organized setting, such as a club or tournament. Squash is popular around the world and is recognized as an Olympic sport.


Squash made its first appearance in Luxembourg during the 1960s.

Introduced by certain Luxembourgers, notably Colette Flesch and Marc Meyer, who discovered the sport in the USA.

With the help of a squash fanatic, Francis Hoogewerf, the first court was established in a warehouse in Findel which had the exact dimensions of a court. A club was formed and the inauguration of the court took place in 1972. Squash became established, and with a strong British following, a new club was formed (Squash d’Or) and four courts were built at Cloche d’Or.

The “Fédération” was formed in 1973 and is affiliated with the COSL (Comité Olympique et Sportif Luxembourgeois) and international organizations ESRF (European Squash Rackets Federation) and the WSF (World Squash Federation).
