Doubles Squash/Double Trouble/Double Vision!   Get ready for a double helping of intense sporting action!   Doubles Squash puts four players in an enclosed space and challenges them to show off their skills.   Players don’t just have to keep one step ahead of their opponents; they have to work in perfect tandem with their partner; anticipating, reacting and perfectly positioning every shot. The court is over 2 metres wider than a Singles court and the players use every inch of it.   They go up high, down low, and lunge in every direction as they hunt down points. Teamwork is everything and the action doesn’t let up, not even for a moment.   In Doubles Squash, the pressure is shared, but so is the joy of victory.
