    Most common squash injuries

    Due to the fast-paced and comparatively repetitive nature of the sport, squash injuries are varied and can be both acute and overuse-related. Here are a few of the most common squash injuries.

    Acute squash injuries

    The sprinting, stopping and jarring, pivoting and pounding nature of the sport often causes acute lower limb injuries, including knee tendonitis, ankle sprains and hamstring strains. Collisions with other players or walls can also lead to shoulder injuries.

    Overuse injuries

    High-velocity repetitive arm movements can lead to squash injuries including tennis elbow, rotator cuff syndrome or tears and shoulder tendonitis. Due to the stopping motion when trying to reach low balls, back pain and injuries are also common.

    Other causes of injury

    In addition to the inherent risks of squash, players may also be injured by slips, trips and fall both on and off the court. Slip, trip and fall injuries may consist of anything from bruises or cuts to broken limbs, back, neck and head injuries.

    Getting treatment

    As leaving squash injuries untreated could cause muscle weakness, joint stiffness and/or formation of abnormal scar tissue, getting treatment as soon as possible is imperative. If your injury was caused by someone else, getting treatment straight away will also ensure your injury is documented within your medical record. This will be useful if you decide to make a compensation claim.

    When to claim

    You may, for example, be entitled to claim if your squash injury was caused by another player’s lack of care, mistake or inappropriate behaviour. A slip or trip caused by wet, cluttered or damaged/uneven flooring off-court may also warrant a compensation claim. Either way, personal injury claims must be filed within three years of the accident causing your injury.

    How to claim

    The first step in claiming for compensation is to have a chat with an Accident Advice Helpline advisor. Backed by more than 16 years’ experience, our advisors can answer all your questions concerning compensation claims and quickly help you confirm your eligibility to claim.
