This is a really great stretch for a whole range of sports that require pivoting and agility but we use it quite commonly for our squash playing clients.

Squash players have a higher rate of calf injury than most due to the rapid changes in direction inherent to the game.

This is a great way of modifying a regular calf stretch to target the longer connective tissue chain down the leg and to ensure that all of the fibres of the muscle group are stretched and warmed up before a game.
