ALLENTOWN, Pa. – If you like tennis or racquetball, or just being active in general, we’ve got an idea for you: Squash.
For this Fitness Friday, WFMZ’s Melanie Falcon tried out the old sport that’s making a comeback.
Squash is similar to racquetball, but with a smaller ball that doesn’t bounce as much, a smaller court, and different rules. It’s a great cardiovascular workout and fun way to get your exercise in.
Two new squash courts were just built in the Jewish Community Center at 702 N. 22nd Street in Allentown, which is where our Fitness Friday took place.
Congressman Charlie Dent is an avid squash player and he even joined us for a segment!
