SquashSkills Training Club is a unique online platform designed to significantly improve your game with the help of our elite coaching team!

Over the last year, we've perfected a number of programmes to match everyone's individual goals and we've seen some great results!

The aim is simple, to create a virtual training environment that offers support, accountability, advice and motivation for players of all levels who are looking to improve their technique and fitness, on or off court.


We have created multiple 6-week training programmes that use a combination of live consultation calls, how-to videos, PDFs and online training diaries to guarantee results. This will all be supported with the creation of a WhatsApp group offering real-time chat. We keep the group sizes small to create a great community spirit ensuring everyone receives quality time and attention from the coaches.


Check out SquashSkills Training Club regular, Scott Richardson's blog, and get the inside scoop on what to expect and why he keeps coming back for more.

"These weeks have been much more than just following drills laid out by Gary. The Training Club has also been about uncovering strengths and weaknesses, supporting each other, and learning how to become optimally fit for squash."⠀

"This programme is terrific. Targeted, effective, intense, yet fantastic camaraderie among the group participants. The squash-specificity of the drills and sessions really shines. And can be adapted to indoors or outdoors, smaller/larger spaces. I’d recommend this to everyone!"

- Juliet Lamont, STC participant

"Perhaps the biggest endorsement I can give for the SquashSkills training sessions is that after years of ghosting, court sprints, and running, it made me realize how little I knew about training smart. Gary patiently showed us that squash training is not about doing crazy amounts of court sprints. It's a sport that requires a balance of endurance, speed, agility, and strength. The program covers all of those areas and allows you to target weaknesses in particular ones so your overall training becomes so much more effective. Another thing the programme taught me was that this approach is not just for advanced players. My 11-year old son loved the sessions as well as my wife who does not play squash. Thanks to Gary for putting together not only an awesome set of routines but for introducing us to an infinitely better way of training!"

- Jim Marino, STC participant

"My highest recommendation goes to the SquashSkills 6 week Training Club, which I just completed last week. A definite rating of 10/10 from me.

Gary Nisbet has injected the programme full to the brim, with such a wide variety of squash specific exercises, resulting in a programme that was 100% motivating, novel, challenging and always interesting. The movement of some of the exercises were such, that I could almost imagine being back on the court!

Each workout could be completed in our own time, and readily adapted to any indoor and/or outdoor space, that we each had, in our own unique lockdown situations.

The SS team were available daily to encourage, give guidance and respond to any queries we each had. There was no shortage of support.

It was an added bonus that I got to train with such a great bunch of squash enthusiasts from all over the world, sharing mutual positive motivation.

My eyes were completely opened to the variety of skills and exercises that underlie squash, stemming well beyond cardio/endurance, to include stability/balance, power/strength and mobility, allowing me to discover my own individual pattern of strengths and weaknesses. The SS programme quickly identified for me some key areas to target in my ongoing training.

Since I finished my SS programme, I have continued with the workouts and could easily continue in my training independently as I am now familiar with the kind of exercises that are of value. However to keep the challenge and motivation going, I have opted to book again to participate in yet another SS programme, and this time bringing a few squash mates with me for the ride!

I cannot rate this training highly enough for any eager squash player."

The course is suitable for all levels from beginners to pros. The coaches will make sure you'll receive training suitable for your level and recommend any adjustments where needed.

Is this suitable for juniors?

The course is suitable for all ages, including juniors. As the main communication channel with the coach and the rest of the team is WhatsApp then it is either the junior or the parent or both in the WhatsApp group to keep an eye on any notes, activities etc, depending on how the family decides.
