Choosing the best squash racket
Choosing the right squash racket for you can be a difficult task. When I started playing I had absolutely no idea where to start. Which to select? Save the money and buy a cheap one or invest into some more expensive gear? Which brand to choose?
I visited some online shops and got confused even more – there were hundreds of products dedicated to squash and I had absolutely no idea what equipment is the most suitable for me. At that time there was no simple guide on choosing the right squash equipment on the internet so I gave up and bought a cheap racquet which seemed nice to me.
But you are in a better position! I will share all the tips I have learned from that time and help you choose the best racket for you:
1. First off, start with the price range
You can find racquets that are very cheap and also extremely expensive ones. It depends mostly on your budget, how much you are comfortable to spend on your gear.
While it is certainly better to invest into high quality racquet, you should remember that it is just a tool – what matters is your skill and how you enjoy the sport. So don`t rush into the most expensive equipment if you are a beginner.
Beginner class racket will cost you from 30 to 50 bucks – if you are just trying squash out and don`t want to spend a lot of cash, go for this one.
Advanced class comes in a higher price range of course – but will offer you much better performance so if you want to play squash more often, go right into some advanced gear.
2. Parameters of the racket
There are many attributes that affect the behavior and characteristics of the racket – the main are weight, material which it is made from (graphite, titanium,…), size and shape of the head and also balance.

And finally – the brand. Many players have their favorite which they stick to, others compare the sortiment of each brand closely and then decide which one has the best offer for them.
