We’re excited to introduce our brand new comprehensive series on volleying to the site this week – and who better to take us on this journey, than 3 x World Champion and legend of the game Nick Matthew!
It’s been great to welcome elite Australian coach Shaun Moxham back on the site this week, featuring a new series of videos where he demonstrates some very innovative and creative ways to apply pressure to his students – perfect for those looking to take their training intensity up a notch.
Due to popular demand, elite coach Jesse Engelbrecht is back with us on SquashSkills this week with another great playlist. For this brand new series, Jesse takes a look at the bane of many a squash players life – the backhand return of serve!
One huge area of frustration for a lot of players is the ability to deal effectively with balls that get put into the deep backhand corner of the court. In the playlist, a lot of key fundamentals were drilled down on and paid attention to, and in my opinion what areas need to be done well in order to have successful outcomes.
This week we welcome back Elite Squash Head Coach Hadrian Stiff to the site. Hadrian has put together a fascinating playlist that examines his personal philosophies surrounding the ‘learning journey’, and how he approaches that coaching process with the players he works with.
This week’s featured video content is focused on some of the common issues amateur players have on the forehand side of the court. SquashSkills founder and former Welsh international player Jethro Binns was joined on-court by friend of the site Paul Miles, for a much requested follow up to their previous playlist where they worked on the backhand side.
New Zealand’s Paul Coll is our featured player this week, and we’ve had a fantastic response to our exclusive documentary ‘More Than a Machine’ that examines the background and training regime of the Kiwi star.
The purpose of this blog is to give you some suggestions of elements you can incorporate into your training, to help allow you to put into practice some of Paul’s conditioning-related insights.
We’re delighted to have David ‘DP’ Pearson back on the site, sharing with us his expert insights on wrist position for the squash player.
DP is one of the best-known coaches in the game, thanks in part to his extensive work with both Nick Matthew and Laura Massaro. Much of what DP talks about in this series, you can really see demonstrated when watching any of his proteges in action.
Elite coach Paul Carter is back on SquashSkills this week, with a great new series taking an in-depth look at routines and condition games. The aim of this blog is to help you put Paul’s expert insight into practice, allowing you to better incorporate these kinds of sessions into your training for maximum results.
SquashSkills favourite Lee Drew is our featured coach this week, introducing a brand new series on creating flow through the shot. The purpose of this blog is to help you put Lee’s valuable insights into practice, supporting you as you learn to better link your movement into your shot and start incorporating more rhythm into your game.
Getting the biomechanics of your swing working correctly is essential to hitting a successful backhand. In the brand new series on SquashSkills with amateur player Paul Miles, we filmed a one on one coaching session and explained the key elements of the swing that allow you to hit with more pace and accuracy.
The modern game has seen players looking to increase the pace at almost every opportunity. If they’re unable to play a volley then you’ll increasingly see the top pros taking the ball ‘on the rise’.
So what does ‘on the rise’ actually mean? It means that the ball is being hit before the top of the bounce and it can be done from a variety of different positions in the court.
Who better to explain how to start adding this to your own game than one of the game’s greatest coaches, David Pearson.
In this week’s featured playlist, SquashSkills co-founder and legend of the sport Peter Nicol takes us through his guide to the lob.
