Squash originated in London, England back in 19th Century. It began when a group of boys at Harrow School took a small rubber ball and using racquets, hit the wall off the walls of their school yards and alleys. The innovation of the game rapidly spread to other schools and to other countries around the world.
In the 20th century, several countries as Australia, United States, Canada and South Africa form their own national governing bodies to elevate the game of squash in an international context.
In Australia, the first court of squash appeared in 1913 during the Melbourne Cup in Victoria. From there, the game became extremely popular among Australians, producing several legends of the sports such as: Geoff Hunt, Heather McKay and Sarah Fitz-Gerald.
