“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the process of starting coaching. The feedback I have had from all the ladies in my session has been amazing.”- Janene, Level 1 coach

Thornton Le Dale – Squash Girls Can
Over a 12 week period the 3 ladies of Thornton le Dale invested time in Squash Girls Can. What happened?
“ As a result of the coaching we went from losses to wins – I actually won a match.”
“ We increased our female membership from 3 to 7 because everyone was enjoying themselves and having fun.”
“ I got fitter without realising it”
“ I wish we could have a coach here every week all year round”
Personally at female only courses –
“ Initially everyone was really quiet, then as time went by it was so noisy – everyone talking and sharing ideas.”
“No one wanted to participate because they perceived themselves as not being good enough – then someone volunteered playing with their non dominant hand and we realised it wasn’t about playing well, it was about having a go.”
“ for two days there were no men telling us how good they were.”
