hi viper

we will be setting up a number of specific videos in the learn to play section, but as all of our content, it will be appropriate for that section.

 we will however, be releasing on a regular basis, special short videos on a wide range of technical subjects. they will give a fair taste of what is available for gold members.

we also intend to provide benefits back to loyal members, details of which we will provide in a few weeks.

Hi Ray,

Can I suggest you upload a couple of the more recent videos as free samples which were filmed under improved technical conditions.

I think the idea has merit, more so for beginners but it will hinge greatly on the quality of the presentation, the original free samples were only just ok.


Also, say 2 videos for beginners and most importantly 2 videos for advanced players, I think you will find interest from beginners but good players will need convincing that you can illustrate the subtle techniques required by advanced players, a couple of free advanced videos would help.

while we have addressed some of your concerns, especially putting more light into each video,  we are really trying to get the content right whilst having a reasonable quality of video. as f0r the court etc, we many of the videos we are starting with has been filmed on the same court, but others we are working on at the moment is on a different court (the original one was supposed to be painted by the time we did the sessions)

if we wait until we get everything absolutely perfect (video wise, not content wise), there will be no just as with the website itself, we will build on what we have started with.

we anticipate that there will eventually be thousands of videos on  the website so that producing tv quality video really is not an option at this stage. we are aiming to start off with reasonable quality video which is accessible at a reasonable price.


all videos are playable in flash, but are not available as downloads at this stage

Can the videos be downloaded, or only viewed online?

Is there an example of the new videos showing some of the feedback given re the original sample videos have been addressed, ie poor light, court walls needed painting and other technical considerations ?

I think it is an excellent innovation but the quality of the production was an issue.

Are all the new videos they same as these originals :

There are now almost 50 videos in the Gold Video Library and new additions have been put in the Squash Library to be found under:
  • Pair Drills
  • Solo Drills
  • Return of Serve
  • Volley
  • Decision Making
The decision making video on the return of serve is my pick as it highlights the decisions being processed as the serve approaches.
This is a skill to aspire to.
