Zoom sessions: Live Q and A with Mohamed El Shorbagy

by hadrian

One of the positives from the recent lockdown has been the efforts of so many people connecting online through various media channels sharing ideas and experiences.

We are now into our second week of daily zoom classes with our elitesquash juniors and squash friends. This idea was sparked by our lead coach at elitesquash Russia, Alexey Severinov during our weekly Skype call; ‘We need to engage our kids and parents and make sure they stay active and healthy during this tough time.’ This started a conversation with the entire elitesquash team on Zoom where we agreed to run sessions daily for our players and share the delivery between us. I am so grateful and proud to be part of such an inspiring and committed group of people who stand so clearly for the values of elitesquash.

 

As part of our schedule we were delighted to welcome the world number 1 Mohamed El Shorbagy will join us for an in-depth experience reviewing his recent match with Ali Farag in the final of Canary Wharf. This was a rare opportunity to hear first-hand what goes on in the mind of a world number 1 before, during and after such a big match. Please find the recording of the call below.

We look forward to seeing you soon, stay safe and stay positive.
