Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After more than one hundred years of playing squash with a hard ball, Americans switched, almost overnight, to using a soft ball. In order to aid this transition, Austin M. Francis wrote Smart Squash: How to Win at Soft Ball, a comprehensive guide to winning squash with this new method. For players of all levels, whether switching from hard ball or new to learning the game entirely, Smart Squash: How to Win at Soft Ball is a must-have.

Francis draws from experience and advice from over thirty US and international coaches, champions, and professionals, covering all aspects of the game. Readers will learn tactics, strokes, shots, drills, match play, and strategies from this invaluable source of instruction and inspiration. Experienced squash players and novices alike will gain enormous wisdom and expert techniques from this all-encompassing guide to soft-ball squash.
