‘Squash 4 Women’ Clinics

The details of the upcoming ‘Squash 4 Women’ Clinics organised by WP Squash and the WP Ladies team covering various topics to educate and encourage girls and women to take part in a great sport like squash are on the poster below. To celebrate being Women! we’ve asked the 3 hosting clubs to reach out to their club members if there are any small businesswomen who would like to be involved on the various days to promote their own business etc. so hopefully will cover a lot of industries depending on the response (nutrition, fitness, beauty, massage, corporate) etc.

Squash South Africa co-hosts World Squash Federation Tutors’ and Level 1 Coaching Course

Squash South Africa co- hosted a highly successful and productive World Squash Federation Tutors’ and Level 1 Coaching Course at the Wanderers Club, Johannesburg  from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th July 2015.

As effectively as he parried his opposition’s strategies when a participant on the PSA circuit, Michael Khan, now chair of the WSF Coaching committee, mentored, facilitated, and guided his diversified group though 3 days of  thought provoking presentations.

Some of Squash South Africa’s most experienced coaches will be appointed as National Tutors and African Tutors viz. Graham Prior, Alan Stapleton, Mike Bester, Gary Plumstead, Alan Colburn, Mike Bester, Liz Mackenzie and Sally White. In the future they will be involved in presenting course to aspiring coaches in Africa, as well as fulfilling an even more valuable role in South Africa. Recently qualified Level 2 coaches: Mike Tootill, Gary Wheadon, Ravi Govender, Jason Le Roux and Munro Montanus will become National tutors pending an assessment of their presentation abilities under the mentorship of one of the National/African Tutors.

The delegates from Botswana showed lots of potential, learning much  from the exposure to South Africa’s top coaches and the valuable input from Michael Khan.
