Number 15 on my list was to try a new sport. 

So tonight I headed to the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre in Truro and played squash for the first time. 

I was repeatedly beaten by my opponents and tutors, Ben Jones and Christian Ziar, and in the six or seven games I played I think I won about eight or nine points.

Three was the most I picked up in any game. 

I played a lot of tennis and badminton in my youth, and it did help a bit. But getting used to ball warming up and hitting ii off the side and back walls felt unusual at first. 

Despite my losing streak I did enjoy the game and will definitely play again. I liked the way it gets your heart pumping quickly. 

Thanks Chris and Ben (nice hat btw!)
