TUCKAHOE, NY (WCBS 880) - At the Pyramid Squash Course in Tuckahoe, a little black ball is smacked against the wall and two players run back and forth. Players here are competing in the Pro Squash Tour.

WCBS 880’s Catherine Cioffi reports from Tuckahoe

“Guys who can master the angles or master their opponent’s weaknesses really do well in this sport,” tour commissioner Joe McManus told WCBS 880 reporter Catherine Cioffi.

McManus explains that 16 players from nine countries have come to Westchester County to take part in this tournament.

Player 18-year-old Muhammad El-Sherbini, from Egypt, explains what he loves about the game by saying, “It’s not about hitting or running. You have to think. Every point you’re playing, you have to think.”

Then he tried to teach Cioffi how to play, which lead to an “Oh my gosh!” from the reporter. At least she tried.

The Westchester Open concludes on Friday, Feb. 4.
