             Mini squash .....What is mini squash?
         It is for encouraging children to have fun on a squash court.AND
                                  Play at home or at school

It came into being because squash went out of fashion, so much so that squash courts were being sold  and used for other purposes.
The  Squash Association itself losing  considerable income and in danger of collapse.
Fortunately funds were  being given by the Sports Council  to various sports for the task of  increasing the numbers taking up Sport.

Faced with this task the  Squash Association decided to copy the LTA’s new scheme  of ‘minitennis,(balls developed by J Price) for encouraging  the very young to  take up  playing the game.... Before the age other activities  became more  attractive.
J Price was asked if they would develop  balls.  We said YES with the proviso that the balls had to be two colour  to make them  as attractive as possible to children. Overcoming all resistance to this condition  PRICE  decided to proceed and ‘minisquash’ came into being .
The  Squash Association testing balls under development for many months, requesting changes until they had the balls  that coaches said was needed
             The balls were approved and became the Official balls

Christened ‘Fundation’ for the beginner Red, ‘Improver’ for the Orange  next stage and ‘Pro’ for the Green stage. When players then moved onto a regular squash balls.

Distribution was arranged via Ransomes Sports. This continued for several years
They still do distribute but we also  sell direct to consumers
The balls being soft are also highly suitable for children to just play with and have fun
