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.

29 Hours in Bristol

by Hannes Schoeman

After a very cold winters morning drop-off at 04:45am in Cambridgeshire, about 30 minutes from Royston, I took the bus at 05:05am to Bristol via London. My stopover in London was cut short when I was luckily allowed to board an earlier bus than intended – score! Whilst travelling (collectively) for 5 hours I was…

“TRAINING IS IN EVERY MOMENT”

by Tom Ford

In most circumstances we tend to view our training sessions in isolation to life. Whether we are a professional or an amateur, younger or older; whether we go to the gym or we do cardio; we play the game and return to “normal life”. We use this brief moment in time to learn or develop…
