NEW BIOMETRIC DATA SUGGESTS SQUASH COULD BE WORLD'S TOUGHEST RACKET SPORT
Ahead of World Health Day (April 7), the Professional Squash Association (PSA) has released new data captured through innovative partnerships with Sports Data Labs and interactiveSquash that suggests squash could be the most physically demanding racket sport in the world.
Through the use of pioneering new technology, data captured during recent PSA World Tour events in Chicago, Sweden and Zurich saw player heart rates regularly exceeding 190bpm – with players covering up to five kilometres in a single match, combined with hundreds of lunges, multi-directional movements and explosive bursts of acceleration.
For the first time quantifying the physicality of top flight squash, the data has shone a light on the supreme physical demands required of professional squash players when competing at the sport’s elite level – whilst reinforcing squash’s position as one of the healthiest sports in the world.
