Squash is very similar to tennis, only the players aren’t facing each other, and there’s no net. The players alternate in striking the small, hollow rubber ball onto the playable surfaces of the four walls of the court. The Verve – men’s quarterfinals held at Marena started with a racket spin (the racket is spun, and the direction in which the racket falls determines the winner of the toss). 

Following are the results


Winner: Devesh Jindal (1st Year)

Runner up: KP Ashwin (TIPS)



Winner: Shuchi Abhishek (TIPS)

Runner up: Anushka Acharya (1st Year)

With the girls kicking the ball across the lush greens of end point, it was truly a pleasure to watch each match. Scoring goal after gol, the match was finally won by 4th years while the 1st years put up a good fight and came in a close second.
