Hi, I am SquashCoachPhillip
and I create videos to really improve your squash.
Squash is about having fun while doing a healthy activity.
Squash For Beginners
This video series has one objective: To teach complete beginners everything they need to know to play a game of squash via concise videos.
Most videos will be under 3 minutes, some under 2 minutes. Each video will focus on one aspect. Eventually, they will cover equipment, basic technique, basic rules, scoring and tactics. I hope to release at least one video per week, sometimes two.
PLEASE NOTE: The episode number and title are links to each video.
