About us

We offer coaching for all levels and ages of players no matter what your aspirations are

Elitesquash began 25 years ago with a vision to provide the ultimate environment for squash players to flourish, this still remains the same today. Over the years the academy has evolved into a place where juniors and adults of all standards can benefit no matter what the aspirations from beginner to world number 1. Having played at a high level in both the junior and senior professional game, Hadrian has drawn on his own experiences in the competitive domain and blends this with knowledge gained from the squash world and the wider world outside the sport  Always asking  what can be learned, where is the sport going next and what to we need to do and know to be one step ahead? This is an ongoing process and all members of the coaching team share their ideas and findings to help each other give all pupils the most effective teaching possible.

We want everyone who comes into contact with Elitesquash to feel our energy and excitement for coaching while enjoying a relaxed and professional service. For that reason, our team are encouraged to be creative and inspirational in every session and to love what they do. We share the same vision and philosophy and are all good friends who support and encourage each other to be the best.

We believe that the overall environment plays a crucial part in the experience and development for everyone who attends our sessions and conscientious, passionate coaches are a key part of this. Enjoying and experiencing each element of the squash journey from the sessions on court, to the people around us, to the city we are in all contributes to ongoing success.
