Hardball #squash. (at Philadelphia Cricket Club)
Pro doubles #squash #rcop
I have a big doubles & singles hardball squash tournament this weekend, with a similar skill set as this video. I’ve been getting in the mental & physical full-on competitive state for the past 36 hours & have been barely able to focus on anything else.
New level of #racket or racquet insanity. Now 4 doubles #squash + lawn #tennis + #realtennis + # hardball + #rackets
I may end up buying their entire world surplus on this racquet. I’ve been through 3 of them, & have just bought another 2. So far I’ve been unable to find a good replacement for it. I find singles racquets break too quickly in hardball doubles. (I originally started playing with them when I saw John White using them, if they can take his force - 172MPH, they’ll stand up to just about anything)
The Dunlop aerogel rush squash racquet was designed by Dunlop specially for doubles squash. The aerogel construction combined with m-fil technology provides stiffness and a hitting zone with a softer feel. The result is a perfect balance between control and power. ). Headsize: 525cm. Length: 27 . Weight strung: 167g/(5.9Oz). Composition/construction: m-fil aerogel. String pattern(mains x crosses): 16 x 19. Recommended string tension: 20-30lbs. Balance: extra head-light.
I was requested to play in a club singles squash tournament. I normally play B or super B, but this year it’s A or C. So I’m playing up a level, at least I’ll get a good workout & improve my skill set. I won my first match by default, my next match is against the national champion, & the match after that is against junior who will be playing for an Iv(y) league next year.
Then I signed up for the member/guest doubles squash tournament, at the same club. In doubles I’m a super B player. Most of the A players are competing, in the past I’ve played with my cousin who is a professional player. This year I have a great partner, but as I’ve already seen the field it will be a tough battle.
Coconut water, ibuprofen, & my gym workouts will be key. Endurance is what wins these matches.
I use Iv(y) as it initially referred the IV (4) schools in their league. Not the Ivy on the building, as most people believe.
Love seeing the junior player crush the senior. #squash
Mixed doubles league tonight. #squash
I did better than expected today:
- 20 runs in 2 overs; till I was run out
- won 3-0 in squash; played another 2 games & won those as well
Whereas teammates didn’t fair so well:
- 40 stitches in the forehead; from a deflected fielded ball
- Split index finger + bent back thumb = blood & inflated thumb
- Caught a line drive into his back; while trying to avoid the ball = large welt
