Squash originated from the ancient game of tennis, also known as le Pauem (the palm of the hand). Following the invention of a racquet by the Dutch, tennis begat rackets which was simply an outdoor version of tennis and involved no more than smacking a ball against one or two walls. The racket was a stretched tennis bat whereas the ball was unsqueezable and made from wound clothe, similar to a golf ball. Britons started building rackets courts as the sport spread across Great Britain. And it continued to spread to colonies such as Canada, India, Australia.
