 I have take the game up relatively late, (I'm in my late twenties). I am really enjoying the game and I have taken a couple lessons to improve technically. But I have encountered a bizzare situation where the only coaching pro in my area has made it fairly clear this he is not interesting in coaching older new players. After two session he made up some story about having an injury and having to take a break for couple of months and yet the following week I met him coaching a group of club players.  Has anyone encountered this before and what can I do to improve without coaching?

Never heard of anything like this before, it's a bit strange and just goes to show how ignorant and unprofessional that individual is.

I'm a recently qualified coach and I'm always more than happy to pass on tips and advice to others, regardless of age or standard! Tell you what, I don't know where you're from but if you're anywhere in the north-west of England I would be happy to help you out and give you a few lessons to get you on your way.

It looks like this coach is not as professional as you think. Well I guess you find another coach who has the heart for coaching.  Also you can start training with other groups  or friends, this will surely help you. For tips and advice you can also visit squash training for great squash routines.

My club has an over 55s vintage team, in fact it has 2 of these teams. Many memers of my club are in their thirties getting back into squash.


Late 20s is not old, you have got 20 years in you of squash.

Welcome to our forum.  I do not understand how a player in their late 20's could be declared over the hill for squash.  Most players in the 60's did not start squash till they were 20 or 30 or even 40 and still made the grade as they got hooked on the game and played four times a age is nothing to do with this equation.  What does help is the other sports that a person has played as those attributes carry through, especially the hand-eye coordination and fitness.

Back to the coaching.  Squashgame do have an e-coach tab in the browser, have a read, and if you want to give it a go, submit your video and we will give you an honest appraisal and guidance to take you forward with your game.. 

Don't give up and get  on the courts often.
