Hi - new here as i am just beginning to play. I'm looking to buy a racket - the best I can get for a low -ish price if possible, and I am also quite short - does that make a difference? Have suffered shoulder injuries from tennis in the past, so wondering if a lighter racket would be better? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.  The Relevant Content tab (on the lefthand column when logged in) has some good reading for beginners. 

There are plenty of good buys in our Squashgame shop (see top right hand corner tab) as well as our Specials listed in the forum.  Where do you live?

Hi Polly,

You will find a lot of valuable advices in previous discussions:

Also, other webpages that you might find interesting:

http://www.squashclub.org/main/e-lessons/lessons/beginner_lessons/lesson1.shtml

I am a beginner as well and I bought a Dunlop Tempo for 40 euros (I am sure that you can find cheaper prices on the Internet including the Squashgame online shop). Most of the advices I found insist on the fact that a beginner should not focus on the choice of the racquet but rather practice a lot and use his/her money for good lessons.

Hope it helps.
