Maximising the potential of the individual

We believe in challenging conventional teaching methods and are constantly searching for new and innovative ways to advance squash players. Our coaching method is centered around a positive and relaxed relationship between the mind and the body, this allows learning to occur as a sensory process which each player will feel and own. Our goal is for our pupils to be successful, independent and confident squash players who reach their ultimate goals. #THEELITESQUASHMETHOD
Working with Hadrian has made a lot of improvement to my game, I enjoy a lot our sessions and its great having them in my corner during matches. We focus on different areas of my game and a lot on my movement. I'm looking forward to keep my partnership with Elitesquash for more years to come.

‘In one week my game improved so much that it’s almost unrecognisable. Hitting the ball more cleanly and moving more efficiently. Squash is even more enjoyable now. ‘ Josh Goldstein – Los Angeles.

Josh Goldstein, Los Angeles

What is truly exceptional,  is their ability to not only get to the bottom of the issue but also, or primarily, to walk the player very quickly through the learning process to break old and implement new pattern. As for me, and I have been playing squash for 8 years now, I was really thrilled to be able to hit for the first time a decent backhand drive from back corner with a relaxed swing only after 1 or 2 training sessions. – Bristol camp 2018

Piotr Mikolajczak, Poland

Hadrian’s method is quite different from coaching I’ve had before in the style, a lot about improving the movement to make the game easier and how connecting the physical and mental sensations can help the whole body feel better and be more effective. It has helped me a lot in my career so far, not just on court but off court too! It helped a lot to get me into the top 3 and hopefully we won’t stop there!

Marwan Elshorbagy – World number 3

If you are tired of same old same old with your squash coaching or are looking for something different then Elite Squash is for you. I came across Hadrian Stiff, who founded Elite Squash, a few years ago and was immediately struck by how different his approach to coaching is. Hadrian and his team have a holistic approach to sport, and specifically squash, which is focussed around freedom of movement and creativity on court.

Seamus Singh, Bristol

Thank you very much for your personal comments, I can see and feel in myself, exactly what I am doing wrong now. It’s so good to have this constructive criticism. Hugely exciting. Thank you. I loved the course content and the relaxed manner that you delivered it. The strength and condition lecture was REALLY useful

Michael, Wiltshire

John was patient and balanced the different abilities well, giving us all strong direction on how to focus on improving our game. Lunch was lovely. Loads of fun and laughter. Really liked the way John dealt with the mental approach to the game too.

Where focus goes, energy flows

by Hadrian Stiff

As part of a personal development, I am part way though there is a section on ‘state’. The state being referred to is the combination of a physical and mental position which we hold ourselves. Many things will affect the state, from the posture of the body to the internal dialogue in the mind. For example,…

5 Tips For a Successful Return to Squash

by Steve Thompson

Solo practice, household play and individual coaching have been all that’s been allowed over the last 5 weeks, and players at all levels have been itching to get back to normal full court squash! That time has now arrived, and will now hopefully never be taken away. With a successful vaccination programme and a much-reduced…
