Start a training group.

Start a training group.

Maybe you belong to a club that has a coach or coaches and runs training sessions. If you do, great and I hope you make use of those sessions – at least sometimes.

If however, you don’t have that option, I suggest you make the effort to create a group of like-minded players and do it yourselves. It only needs to be once a week and if you have enough players, they won’t all need to go every week.

The idea is to have a regular slot, where you don’t simply play matches or games, but actually practice routines.

I understand that doing something like this yourselves can be a little daunting, mostly because you don’t know what to do, but nowadays, there are enough videos around for you to pick and choose your routines.

It won’t take long for you to see the benefits of these sessions and it snowballs – the more you feel the benefits, the more sessions you want.

I love training alone and squash gives us that option. But there is little doubt that training with other people makes you work harder.

The sessions you have don’t only have to be routines. They could be partly fitness sessions too.

One last point. You could occasionally hire a coach to come in a run the session for you. That way you can make sure you are doing the right thing and also inject some new ideas into your sessions.
