Hi guys, I started squash only very recently. This website's been pretty useful and I have been reading up on the tips and tricks in the Squash Library. 

However, I was wondering if I can go one step further and train at home, since I can only visit the squash court once a week. Apart from mastering my strokes and techniques and also reading up on the online guides, are there any other way for me to train at home? I do have a tiny space in front of a wall in my room. The space is about 1.75m long and 0.85m wide only. 

Thanks for your help guys and happy squashing!

 one idea is to do some exercises targeting internal/external hip rotation, the glutes and the groin. if you combine that with lunges and squats, you'll get a nice increase in core strength that will help you get power in your shots.

Maybe you can try some bodyweight exercises to improve your strength. I also do my workout at home. One of my favourite exercises in this context are punches. It's a really good plyometric exercise ( at-home plyometric training and workouts). Or just have a look at Youtube for solodrills.

Any space is a lot of space if you dont fear your neighbour :) What I do is I hit volley or small dro shots from close distance, in my office, until other guy start complaining. any exposure to ball and racket and wall (of any size) will bring you more close to your racket. Feel your racket. Feel the touch of ball with the racket. Aim at a spot on the wall and try to hit there. Small taps/hits.

There are a lot of workouts available for tight spaces. I have seen whole body workout in just a narrow hallway in apartment with bands and bar in the door frame.

Spend more time with your equipment. It will definitely help.

Well that is hardly enough to do any kind of footwork. You can do the wrist pronation and supination exercises.

Do you have a park or playing field close to your home where you could do ghosting. If so take a look at Squash/Drills and Routines which will show you some good movement drills.
