Smartest Commentary I've Read All Year ...

... about squash is right HERE, in which squash novelist Aubrey Waddy discusses the televisual pitfalls of the sport. I completely agree....


  1. My squash DVDs show replays from front wall perspective. Is there a link to an entire match shown from front wall?

  2. I've never seen a film of a match that was predominantly from the front wall, and that was the point of Waddy's very nice commentary. We should flip the perspective: most should be looking at the players head-on, because it's at the front court where most of the exciting action is at the pro level and you get to see player reactions. Use the back court angle when necessary, and even shots from above, which tend to dramatize how fast the players are in getting tot he ball.


Sorry, but due to increasing spam, I've added the Word Verification step. My policy on comments is anything goes, as long as it is about squash and as long as it isn't unnecessarily nasty....
