Adult camp featuring James Willstrop

11 — 10

This was certainly a weekend to remember! Having James Willstrop spend the whole weekend imparting his knowledge on our camp and showing his insane skills in the Exhibition match with Eain Yow was something special. In addition, our pro shoot out on Saturday night unleashed our best young, up and coming professionals in a fast and furious tournament for the winner takes all £100 price. Sean Conroy came through the winner Against Bristol university number 1 Harry Anderson.

Our two day camp involved 16 attendees from all over the world who were taken through the fundamentals of the short game and mindset for squash and life. This included demonstrations by James and Hadrian, conditioned games and mind and body practices. The weekend was topped off with James playing everyone for 1 game back-to-back! He should be recovered in time for his next event the Qatar classic!

We will certainly be running another camp like this very soon and already have a superstar guest lined up. Watch this space…
