Technique development during summer camps

by Filip Madaric

We are only a few weeks away from our first ever Adult Summer Camp in Torquay. One of the major topics all players look for is technique and it’s progression.

We will dive into the core of technique development across all levels. What makes our shots really stand out and how simplicity in delivering our swing makes all the difference. Looking deeper into our own swing we can really see what makes it click and how to deliver the most optimal shots within the rally.

Some of the key points when analysing the swing are:

Comfortable preparation

Means we need our racket to be up and back as early as possible to be able to deliver a smooth and relaxed swing.

Timing of the hit

Heavily depends on what kind of pressure we are looking to inject. We will cover this in detail once on court, but the possibilities are a few when choosing when exactly to hit the ball, whether top of the bounce as well as earlier or after.

Angle of the racket

Cutting through the ball is a hidden jewel when it comes to playing a dying length to the back or putting the ball short.

Relationship between the hips and the arm are the key to fluency. Being relaxed within our body makes all the difference when playing shots under pressure. This is where we look into the connection between our hips and the arm playing the shot, to see how effective we are using our hips within each shot.

Players will have a chance to enhance their own technique through effective methods of elite squash teachings.

We are really looking forward to delivering these sessions to all of our participants.

British junior championships review

by hadrian

As always the team at Edgbaston priory club and Birmingham university provided an excellent experience for the British junior championships. Somewhere close to 500 kids battled it out across the two venues and it was very encouraging to see so many young players at such a high level when there is plenty of talk about…

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.
