Hit That Ball

Havelock North Squash Club

Hawke's Bay

Kiera, 11

I jump out of the car excitedly ready for my game. I hop on court and my opponent's waiting warming up the black ball. The scent smells like old sweaty socks. I can see my coach and visitors watching the game. I can hear SMACK! SMACK! SMACK! SMACK! As the ball hits the wall. We start the game and sweat starts dripping off my face. My grasp is no longer grippy as I adjust my hands and finger. No air conditioning makes me feel like I’m 5 metres away from the sun. Come to this place and you will enjoy it.
