Squash is the game. Not really a lazy man game as there is really lots of running to do chasing that little ball. But it is very effective and fast to work out a sweat. Hence, very suitable for someone who want a good workout with minimum spare time. You can get a good work out for 45 min and it doesn’t come with co$tly equipment outlay. Maybe thats the reason i have been playing the game since univ days when cash were a lot tighter…. with the same buddies. Rain or shine you will see us at a squash court between 7.30 to 9.30 pm. The only time i broke the routine was when i sprained my ankle and later picked up golf.
Some of the courts we had played on are no more. Casualties of redevelopment and change of use probably due to the general waning of public interest. Well, as a group we also lost a few members to golf and family commitment. We are not chasing the balls as hard and worry too much about the score line nowadays. However, the joy a quick adrenalin flush and meeting of old buddies is driving us on. Occasionally we get free coaching tips when, Zainal Abidin the ex-National player is giving lesson next door.
Our squash days are numbered but till then we look forward to our Tuesday of squash fix.
