THE SUNNY BEGINNINGS...
SQUABALL was created in 2006 by Nikos Koutsou at Erotospilia beach, Greece. Passionate about playing with beach rackets and keen on competition, he invented a new sport that could be played all year-round, indoors and outdoors, with innovative rules and no special facilities required.
It was in 2011 when its founding members, Nikos Koutsou and Beatriz Sierra, improved the sport and developed the Official Rules of Squaball.
The Squaball Sport Association was founded in Switzerland, by a community of sports enthusiasts, in 2019. Squaball is currently based in Geneva, with supporters and a continuing presence in Greece.
