RULES
THE COURT
A Squash Court is rectangular in shape, with the back floor divided into two halves and a service box at the front of each of these two halves. The distant wall is marked with a horizontal service line (the 'Cut') and another parallel line just above the floor (the 'Board') with the 'Tin' below this.

SERVICE
All serves are taken from within the appropriate service box and must bounce off the distant wall, above the Cut, before landing in the opponent's half of the Court. However, the ball can be returned before touching the ground. There is an option to allow for a second service ('Old Rules').

RALLIES
The ball can bounce any number of times off any walls, before or after hitting the end wall. It amy then bounce only once on the ground before it must be returned, or it may be volleyed.

SCORING
A rally is won if the ball bounces more than once on the ground before your opponent can return it, or if they fail to hit the end wall in the required area. Service is then transfered to the rally winner, or if they already have service, then they will be awarded a point. The winner is the first player to 9 points. If the score gets to 8 all, the receiving player has the option to play up to 9 ('No Set') or 10 ('Set Two').

ARCADE SECTION
TO SERVE
If your opponent is standing in the left hand back quarter waiting to receive a service, move the joystick left and forward to make a power shot, left and back to make a lob shot. Holding the joystick in this way and pressing Fire, will start the game. (The ball must be hit the front wall and bounce in your opponent's back quarter to be a successful serve, unless your opponent returns your service before it hits the back quarter). For a right-hand serve, reverse the procedure.

RALLIES
After a successful service has been mode, use your joystick to move your player to the position you estimate the ball will land - at this point hold down the Fire button and move the joystick. Left makes a standard left bias shot, left and up to make a left bias power shot, left and down to make a left bias drop shot.

Right makes a standard right bias shot, right and up to make a right bias power shot and right and down to make a right bias drop shot. Up makes a straight power shot, down makes a straight power shot, down makes a straight drop shot, with joystick centred makes a standard shot.

If you have selected the easy option you will only have to move your player to the correct position and the return shot is automatic, but the shot bias will be in the direction of the current joystick position.

You start off in the bottm rung of your Club League and you must work your way up the ladder to become Club Champion. (It is advisable to become proficient at Club level before playing in the World Championships).

GOOD LUCK!
