about me

In my 30 years of coaching, I have worked through the England Squash Coaching Program and passed the Level 2, 3 and 4 Elite qualifications – Level 4 being the highest possible.

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

“Whatever your reasons or goals starting squash, I can help to make them achievable.”

  • positive review  After coaching my son for many years, I too started having coaching with Craig a few years ago. I now wish I had started earlier! Always enjoy my lessons, my game has certainly improved and continues to do so as Craig takes you to another level each time you find you have mastered one aspect of the game

  • positive review  Having not played squash for the last 15 years, Craig has been giving me lessons to get back into squash, and he has improved my game well beyond my expectations, I would recommend Craig to anybody what ever level they are at.

  • 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.
