Squash – The Lunge

As squash players the lunge is something we are all familiar with.  I was practicing movement in to the front court with the help of my coach and one thing that we were working on specifically was how far forward the leading knee can go. If your leading knee goes too far you can lose balance on the shot you are playing.  Also if you go too far you will also not have the same strength to push back out of the corner.

I was quite happily into the main draw of all three without having to qualify, and in fact was set to play two qualifiers in Argentina and Brazil, respectively.

Daryl Selby – Black Knight Magnum Corona 6

@BK_1976 the Twitter Account of Black Knight in the UK has been busy this week asking people who their newest sponsored player was in the video below.

Today it was finally revealed who the player was. Many had been able to guess already but it was confirmed by Black Knight to be Daryl Selby

Signing Daryl Selby is a great choice for Black Knight. The highest profile player they have signed currently other than Daryl is David Palmer but he is no longer playing on the PSA Tour having retired. Having someone that has been a top 10 player and may well return to the top 10 in their lineup gives Black Knight some excellent exposure. Daryl Selby is someone that often goes deep in to the PSA tournaments so he will be seen on PSAsquashtv.com regularly as well as of course in person at the tournaments. We should get to see Daryl in action with his new Black Knight Magnum Corona6 shortly in the upcoming World Team Championships.
