Asked by Squash legend Peter Nicol:
“How is it so many of your players are so skilful with the racket?” – What a
I believe the Game is in a most exciting era at present, with an array of
talented professional players playing a dynamic, adventurous, and
entertaining brand of Squash, which should be an inspiration to all those
aspiring to emulate them, but which demands the highest level of
racket-skill to achieve. Exactly the sort of skill which I have always

I may be getting older and slower, but I am certainly wiser for all my years
as a coach, and I really hope that my ability to help and enthuse players of
all ages and experience, to improve / realise their full potential remains
undiminished. However, they may have to hurry – if I were to stop enjoying
it all, I may just have to retire!
