Squash Resolution

One of my New Years resolutions was to start playing squash. I took a few lessons years and years ago but never really learned how to play the sport.

After my first clinic I decided my goal is to play enough (skill is not important) that I can justify getting the Harrow Vapor racquet in pink and green also known as "The Prep". I told JCW that I thought I needed my own racquet and he promptly nixed that notion. I have been admiring this stellar racquet for years. Much to my dismay I searched for "The Prep" and concluded it must be discontinued!

During my search I did come across some pink and green accessories.

The runner-up racquet would have to be the Harrow Breeze racquet. I really like the patches of plaid but I prefer the bubble gum pink of "The Prep". My selections are based purely on appearance as opposed to performance.

Maybe a pink bag would suffice?

I would love to be able to sport an Under Armour skort on the court and not look like a total poser. I guess I should stay focused on trying to learn how to serve and not get ahead of myself on a quest for cute squash gear. I need a whole lot of work but I am excited about learning a new sport.

EAS you hit the nail right on the head! Its all about the racquet and accessories. People will be looking at your cute outfit and gear they wont notice your serve. I have been dying to learn how to play squash and you have reminded me to sign up for some lessons! Good Luck!

Cute gear! I've never played squash, but I think it would be fun to learn.

Ok I am jealous! Husband is a great squash player, but not patient enough to really teach me! I should try and find a clinic or a teacher so I could at least try and keep up with him! Darling gear!!

Such a cute post! One of my girlfriends is a terrific squash player. I, on the other hand, am simply trying to master tennis (and when I say master, I mean be able to very casually play without embarrassing myself or my opponent).

I played squash ages ago. Fun indoor sport, hit my boyfriend in the eye, so it can be a bit dangerous at times!

Oh, he was fine, but it hurt.

Squash is a great game and provides an excellent workout while having fun! My Father, a Professor at Penn, played into his 70's and I play often at Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia. I play with friends and with my kids. You will love the sport and find it addictive.
