"Just wanted to follow up and say how positive I feel after the squash camp - I have a warm fuzzy glow type feeling about the whole thing :)

Prior to this, I've taken lessons, I've read articles on site, watched the videos on your site & studied the pros in action. However, I don't think I've ever before had such a clear understanding of what I need to do now to improve my game - and it's also given me fresh, simple ideas about what to do for my physical training."

"The weekend was outstanding. I may have mentioned that I have done camps before and what stood out above the others were the take-aways - the personal sheets, the skill games etc and the V1 analysis. TO me that marked the course out as exceptional and sets it apart from the others I have done and the others I know about - I am acutely aware, as an accountant, that fundamentally this is a business and that you have competitors!!! With others I always get the feeling that whilst the coaches are undoubtedly skilled in the game, (with the amount of information disseminated, it's simply impossible to take very much in and the majority is often forgotten in the subsequent days, often the most important things too!) the coaches skill set is based more on their understanding of the game rather than the less glamorous aspect of paperwork, which is essential if you are going to give players the tools for them to improve their game in the long term."
