GARY NISBET

We’re excited to be returning to Berkhamsted for our first camp of the new decade. 

 

The newly renovated club is a great facility with very easy access from all parts of the country.

 

The theme for the weekend will be length hitting. It’s at the foundation of any successful squash player’s game and there’s so much more to it than just making the ball hit the back wall.

 

Over the weekend we’ll explore the different types of length and help understand what type of length you should be hitting from different parts of the court at different times. 

 

Don’t snooze! We’re expecting tickets for this event to sell out very quickly. Book your spot today to avoid disappointment. 

IMPROVE YOUR LENGTH HITTING

The camp will be held at Berkhamsted Lawn Tennis & Squash Rackets Club, Lower Kings Rd, Berkhamsted HP4 2AL, UK

ACCOMMODATION

"Length forms the basis of our sport. As much as players such as Amr Shabana or Ramy Ashour were known for their ability to hit winners, it was really there length hitting that set them up for success.

 

You need to be able to attack all four corners and finding the right weight of shot when hitting to the back will dramatically increase your ability to win points on the squash court."
