An International squash court measures 21' wide by 32' long and requires a minimum ceiling height of 18' 6" for lighting. An optimum design would allow for ceiling/lighting height of 20' as a lob ball off the front wall (15' high out of bounds height) will have less chance of hitting the ceiling and the striker losing the point.
The choice of Court Wall System will be decided based on the owner's preference and budget. Anderson Courts will guide owners on the benefits of each system and work with architects and General Contractors in areas of layout, floor transitions, lighting, colors, and overall budget costs. Specifications and details will be provided as well for Flooring and Glass Walls.
