Squash, the game formerly called squash racquets was developed from five other sports involving racquets and gloves, from as early as the 12th century in France.  The next major development of squash took place in England where the game of racquets was developed, minus the gloves from its original conceptualization in the 12th century, racquets and balls were the main tools used in the game.



The game squash is a high-speed sport played by two players in a four walled court with a small, hollow rubber ball.  The game squash is recognized by the International Olympic Committee and widely debated for incorporation in future Olympic programmes.
