What are the strengths in your squash game? It is very important to know what you do well. Playing to your strength is a very good place to start when you are playing a player you are not familiar with. It is also important to know what patterns and type of shots work well for you on the court. In addition it is to good fall back to your strengths if you are struggling in a game.
Squash is a game played in close quarters. You are constantly jockeying for position with your opponent. It is important to remember that you have the right to play the ball where you want. There are two reasons that this is beneficial. The first that you get properly set for your shot and the second that we can force our opponent out of position.
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.
