Our method

Squash for life

The connection between body and mind in order to bring the best performances in practice and competition lies at the heart of how we teach. All players feel at their best when this balance is achieved but it takes practice and guidance to find consistently, our coaching team are experts in helping players find this. We teach that feeling and trusting in the process of learning and competing is at the heart of reaching your best.

Players must be honest and open about their strengths and weaknesses and have the courage to accept and learn in the face of possible failure.  Squash can be an enormously powerful environment in which to develop individuals. It challenges each player to face difficulties and fears and to learn, grow and progress in the face of such challenges. In this context it is about more than just sport, it is an opportunity to develop skills for life. Our method aims to give players these skills to thrive and reach their full potential on and off the court.
