Breaking News – WA Open venue change

Due to 1 court being out of action at Squashworld Cambridge and with the record number of entries so far the 2020 WA Open sponsored by WA Squash has moved to Squashworld Mirrabooka.   The dates 14-16 August still remain the same.  Entries close 10 August, please get your entry in by this date to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the WA Squash Rackets Association (inc), which was formed in 1950.  It is unfortunate that the event will not be held at Squashworld Cambridge as this is the 60th year since the club was formed, however we are fortunate to be able to move this event to the largest squash centre in Australia………………..Thank you to Squashworld Mirrabooka.

Lets Drill

Lets Drill Who remembers this Let’s Drill book by Kim Buttfield?  Kim was one of our top female players in the 80s & 90s.  When she was the Coaching Co-ordinator and Development Officer Kim produced this book along with Life Member Alan East in 1993.  This book is given to all participants at WA Squash Coaching Courses, so there will be at least one within each squash centre.

As we are now getting back on court for training, this book is a handy tool for one and two person drills.  Pick out the ones that keep you 1.5 metres apart.  If you are competitive then set your own targets in these drills and score against each other.

Drills are a great way to improve technique and shot practice without pressure.  Top players around the world do drills 2-3 times per week – so give it a go.
