Coaches: Meet the club coaches
Squash Coaching.png

Melbourne University Squash Club provides an environment where players of all levels can develop and grow their skills and enjoyment of Squash. For those relatively new to the game, coaching involves a directed program of learning that is perfect for individuals and small groups looking for a tailored Squash experience. For experienced players, coaching provides an environment to hone skills, tactics and technique and build fitness under supervision. It’s like personal training for Squash, but better! 


At the Melbourne University Squash Club, we work with several coaches who are accredited through Squash Australia, and strongly recommend them to any player, new or experienced in Squash. Their profiles are shown below, and each coach can be contacted directly to arrange coaching sessions and discuss your tailored coaching experience.


Note: The Melbourne University Squash Club has no financial association with coaching sessions organised between a participant and the coach.
