I have coached raw beginners, through to world class professionals including Cassie Jackman – former world #1 and most successful English female player.

Reviews

Take a look at my reviews from past and present players.

  • 5 star review  ..having had coaching with a number of squash coaches, Craig has helped me understand most about the game and in particular the detail which other coaches miss.. In the short time I've been attending one-to-one coaching, I've noticed my level improve with my understanding of the game hitting new heights. As a keen club level player and avid watcher of the game on SquashTV, I'm seeing things in the game which I simply couldn't see before having coaching, with an understanding of why I play well and not so well - it's all about the timing, or in Craig's words 'time signatures'. If you want to improve your game then I cannot recommend Craig enough.

  • 5 star review  Craig is excellent with my son Monty (5years old). He teaches him technical moves in a fun and interesting way that keeps Monty actively engaged. Surprisingly Monty pays attention and listens to constructive advice. Thoroughly enjoys it and always comes off with a smile on his face after beating the old boy in a running race.I can also personally say I would not be the squash player I am without Craig’s advice and expertise.He has successfully taught three generations of the Gedge family! (Sorry craig, I’m showing your age now��)Five stars �

  • 5 star review  I can definitely recommend Craig as a squash coach for children, he has coached my 10 year old Son for the last few years and has always been patient and kind, explaining things in a way James understands, so naturally he's improving every week and enjoying it.
