            ALAN STAPLETON'S                                          15 March 2016

BALLS TO THE WALL BOOK LAUNCH

Alan has now published a book, which contains many of his "Balls to the Wall" articles that he has been publishing in a local Port Elizebeth newspaper for the past 4 or 5 years. Some of these articles are featured on this website.

They involve a myriad of squashing stories, from coaching tips, anecdotes, pink elephant mist and general frustrations of a normal league player.

Please contact Glenda at the WPS office to place your order. The book costs R200, and all proceeds from the first print run will be going to a good squash cause.

 

MARKING and REFEREEING COURSE                  15/03/2016

WP Squash, through Ian Harvey and Munro Montanus, will be holding a marking and refereeing course in the very near future, ultimately to gear people up for the 2016 Keith Grainger Memorial UCT Open in early April.

All clubs are encouraged to submit names of aspiring and interested players to the WPS office - please phone Glenda.

But, if you are reading this and are interested, then please give Glenda a call yourself.

Final date for the course has not yet been decided, however it is likely to be on a Thursday evening soon.

 
HOW IMPORTANT IS THE "COOL-DOWN"?

(Article copied from "Squashskills.com" - 11th Feb 2015)

For the diligent squash player, the cool-down (or warm-down) has long been as much an integral part of training/playing as the warm-up. But while for most players the warm-up will follow the same general pattern of progressively warming and mobilising the body in preparation for exercise, there is usually seen a far higher degree of variance in cool-down routines. Similarly, whilst the benefits of a properly constructed warm-up are fairly well established and understood, you’ll hear a far wider variety of perceived reasons for the presumed necessity of going through a cool-down routine post-exercise. So just how strong is the research support for the cool-down, and if we are going to go through a cool-down routine, what exactly should we be doing?

EARLY STAGE DEVELOPMENT FOR JUNIORS

Should your child specialise in a sport? Or play a multitude of them? Read here a blog by Gary Nisbet, a professional fitness and conditioning expert with "Squashskills" what the current thinking is! Also follow his blog at 'squashskills.com/blog'...

For those that coach juniors, or have children of their own that are keen squash players, the question often comes up of ‘How soon should my child specialise in just the one sport’? It’s a difficult one, with lots of factors to consider, and it can often be very difficult to give a categorical answer.

SHOULD WE DO AWAY WITH "YES LET?"

OR START BEHAVING ON COURT?


Towards the end of 2013, PSA CEO, Alex Gough was in hot water for apparently using some rather 'flowery' language, directed at the volunteer referee presiding over his match. He apparently called the ref a "%$#ing wanker" for calling "yes let". Gough then told the referee that he was the reason that squash was not in the Olympics (for calling so many lets). (For the full article, see the 'Squash Ezine' edition dated 14 November.)

NEW SQUASH RULES EFFECTIVE 1st JANUARY 2014

The current squash rules have been in effect since 2001. Since then, there have been only two changes:- the major one being the move from a “hand-in hand-out” scoring system to the ‘Point-a-Rally’ (PAR); and a minor one stating that the “tin” includes “board.”

A working group was established, primarily to simplify the language, and make the rules more “user-friendly” through a more logical structure. At the WSF AGM in October, the changes were ratified and will come into effect from 1st January 2014. Although no major changes have
