Squash Tactics and Training

In September of 2009 I changed squash clubs due to a move and since then I have made some serious changes to my game too. I had a chance to play one of my friends at my old club the other day and there was a startling difference in both of our styles of play. We both had pretty predictable styles of play before, very different in that I almost always played long and he always tried to go short.

Squash Racquet Review – Dunlop Aerogel 4D Evolution 120

I had a chance to try out the Dunlop Aerogel 4D Evolution 120 for the first time this week. What a great racquet! This is the racquet that Nick Matthew, the current #1 player in the world uses. 

It is not the traditional shape of a Dunlop racquet with its tear drop head and longer mains but it retains the Dunlop feel.  That is a great combination as you get the extra power from the longer mains and the same feeling of the ball sitting on the racquet that you do from other Dunlop racquets.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTROL THE ‘T’ SPORTS IS PROUD TO NOW BE OFFERING DUNLOP SQUASH EQUIPMENT

Dunlop Sports

We at Control the ‘T’ Sports are very pleased to now be offering Dunlop squash gear.  Dunlop has a long history in our sport.  They have a history of greatness.

The three players in the above picture epitomize Dunlop.  All three have been number one in the squash world – just like Dunlop.  Dunlop racquets are used by more professional squash players than any other brand.

Gregory Gauthier uses the Dunlop Aerogel 4D Elite.  This great looking frame has plenty of power.  If you are looking for the Dunlop feel and want the maximum power offered by Dunlop look no further.

Nick Matthew plays with the Dunlop Aerogel 4D Evolution 120.  In Nick’s words it is “The reason why I moved to Dunlop”.  It is not the traditional shape of Dunlop but it has the the traditional feel of a Dunlop.  It is a lightweight frame that has lots of power and being head light is very maneuverable.  Almost nothing gets past Nick and he keeps his opponents under constant pressure, the speed of the Dunlop Aerogel 4D Evolution 120 certainly fits his game.

Amr Shabana plays with the Dunlop Aerogel 4D Ultimate.  The Ultimate’s denser string bed, a 16 x 19 string pattern offers superior control while still offering very good power.  The Dunlop Aerogel 4D Ultimate and Amr Shabana are a great match as both exude control!

Dunlop has a great selection of squash racquets and we at Control the ‘T’ Sports are definitely proud to be carrying them!

Asics Gel-Blast 3 Indoor Court Shoe

I have been using the Asics Gel Blast now for a couple of years and I am so used to wearing them that when asked why they are so good I simply said they are the best shoe I have ever played squash in.  While that is true it was probably not the most thorough explanation!  There are really a few key points that make these shoes great.

National Squash Academy in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Jonathon Power is giving back to the Canadian Squash Community.  He along with Jamie Nichols and Gary Waite are in the process of creating the National Squash Academy at Downsview Park in Toronto.  I am lucky enough to be in the area and am definitely looking forward to visiting the facility.

Having such a facility in the city of Toronto is great for the local squash community.  There are definitely other good clubs in the city of course but this is geared towards being a high performance center.  To quote the information below it is a “center of squash excellence, combining all of the necessary elements of Long Term Athlete Development to grow the game and it’s athletes from playground to the podium”  Clearly the focus is on training competitive athletes.
