Get Ahead Of Your Opponents Next Season!

After a very successful course last summer, we're excited to announce that Nick Matthew joins us again this summer, sharing his elite squash championship experience during this ultimate pre-season online training program!

Squash is a tough sport, and struggling to get match-fit in the first month back can be frustrating (and painful). That's why maximizing your performance for the competitive season starts with getting into peak condition during the off-season. The foundation you build before the new squash season sets the stage for success.

About the Program

The Summer Training Program, starting on 9th July, will be headed up by Nick Matthew and SquashSkills Fitness Director Gary Nisbet.

Over 8 weeks, you'll follow a program designed specifically for the start of the season. The course includes on-court and off-court workouts, periodic fitness testing, and guidance on recovery and healthy living to maximize your results.

We'll focus on endurance, power, and speed in a structured way that leaves you in peak condition, ready to dominate your first match.

Concerned about your holiday plans or work commitments?

No worries! You can fit the entire program into your schedule, regardless of your other commitments or location.

Many players struggle to make the most of the off-season, but with Nick Matthew and Gary Nisbet's guidance, you'll learn how to optimize your summer training and elevate your game to new heights for the 24/25 season.

How It Works

A step-by-step overview for what to expect once you've signed up

Before The Course

Before the course starts, you will receive an email with the final details to get you all set up.

We will give you links to download the SquashSkills Training app, join the WhatsApp chat with the main coach and you will also get the first Zoom call date and time.

Your First Day

You will have an introduction Zoom call - The purpose of the Zoom call is to run you through the course details, get to know everyone else and ask any initial questions you may have.

You will also receive your first weekly sessions in the SquashSkills Training app.

Training Blocks

We work in four blocks, so you will receive new sessions on weeks 1, 3, 5 and 7 and then repeat those sessions on weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8. This way you will have enough time to really improve your technique - practice makes perfect.

The program consists of 2 main sessions and 1-2 bonus sessions per week. Each session is around 30-45 minutes long. You can finish the sessions around your availability.

Coach Contact

Throughout the course, you will have 4 Zoom calls with the coaches - The topics vary based on the course but the main topics are usually: Q&A, follow-along fitness session, game analysis.

Sharing Progress

You will be a part of a WhatsApp chat with the coach and the rest of the participants - This is really your chance to share how you're getting on with the course and ask the coach any questions that you have about training (recovery, technique, nutrition, feedback etc).

After The Course

Once the course is finished you will still have all the materials - You can always go back and re-do the 6-week course if you want. All the sessions and the Zoom call recordings will stay with you and the WhatsApp chat will stay available as well if you ever want to message the rest of the participants.

Testimonials From 2023 Summer Training Club

I've completed a few of the training camps, but this one far exceeded my expectations. I loved the variety the training blocks provided. I tend to focus more on playing than training, but this STC really opened my eyes into how I could and should structure my training week around playing. I feel stronger, faster and fitter than ever and my match results are reflecting this. Thanks to Nick, Gary and my fellow STC team mates from across the globe. The accountability, camaraderie and access to elite level coaching make these training camps something very special to be a part of.
I really recommend SquashSkills Training Courses! You can have access to extremely profound approach to the game, from the best players in the world! It's a kind of dream for us who love squash and who love learning and improving all aspects of the game! Thank you very much! Good luck!
I had an amazing time with the summer training course and would recommend it to all levels of squash players. It re-emphasizes out of court work, yet makes it fun, and the combined wisdom of the group, ad-hoc video analysis has ensured that I see tangible improvements in my game
My footwork has improved 100%. My movement 100%. My confidence to believe in myself 100%. Back again next year 1000%. A really really great course. I would recommend to all levels. Loved the discussions and tips.
A great well-rounded course for developing skills and fitness for the squash season. Great value!
The STC offers brilliant insights into how pro's prepare for games, both physically, and mentally. After the program concludes, you get to keep all that you have learned, including the materials describing the training program. So you can focus on the items that you feel have to be improved. During the program itself you are being cheered on by the consisting of your squash peers, SquashSkills coaches and Nick Matthew himself. What more could you ask for?
SquashSkills have provided a place for me to link up with other players young and old around the world as part of a community. The learning is excellent and the sharing makes it fun! Nick and Gary are so generous with their time and advice- even when we go slightly off subject! The online group is key to my enjoyment of the training clubs and I have met so many other squash lovers -we come together to challenge ourselves and share the love of our great sport whilst learning from the best in the game. Thank you to Sandra, Jethro, Gary and of course Nick for making it a brilliant experience.
8 weeks. The focus was to train smart & train hard in order to get fitter, stronger & faster. The end result is that I feel that I achieved these objectives and got my body ready for the new squash season. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.
