Readers, Digest this: Squash ain’t basketball!

For one thing, the balls are of totally different dimensions.

Secondly, the is no glamour in the game of squash, to put it bluntly. Hence the young people of today are not as attracted to it, as they are to sports such as basketball and the like, for example tennis, foottie and so on, etc, ad infinitum. Hence, we come to the conclusion that squash is headed the way of Reader’s Digest: an ageing audience that will die out with the product.

All this was brought upon me after a game with Ganesh on the weekend during which he mentioned that the top league players in the Western Cape are all in their forties. So, did squash have its heyday in the eighties, when those people were in their twenties? Modulo || ?

The days of the Khans, Hunt, Barrington. Heck, I have no idea who the current world No.1 is.
