In my 26 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.

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 �

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.

Craig is a fantastic coach - Couldn't have developed as much as I have without him! Also has a good laugh on court too! Can't recommend highly enough!
- Chris Fernandez

I would recommend everyone gives this ago. Ben & Leonie have thoroughly enjoyed being coached by Craig. They both started at the Saturday morning group sessions at the Edge, Barnham Broom - first with Ben having one on one sessions with Craig and now Leonie. Ben has gained so much by being trained by Craig - so much so that he has just got straight into his Uni Squash team - beating virtually everyone in the process. Must be something to do with Craig being an England Squash Level 4 Elite Coach (the highest qualification available)!!.Leonie is now benefitting from one to one sessions with Craig, and I already see a big change in a very short time. Craig is very patient with the way he trains, building up your skill levels at a pace to suit. Give him a go - as this is a great sport to do....
