Looking for a sport that’ll boost your child’s confidence whilst improving fitness and co-ordination? Squash and Squash 57 is a great choice. While both sports offer a great cardio workout, most kids won’t notice while they’re having fun hitting a ball around the court and enjoying themselves. It’s an all-year-round indoor sport too, so a great alternative to muddy pitches and cold mornings on the sidelines.
