“What truly underpins my coaching philosophy is that I hope players will find a love for the game of squash that I found in my teenage years and still have now,” explains Chris when explaining the philosophy of his The Ryder Squash Academy. “Like the game itself, my appreciation of squash is multi-faceted: the intense gladiatorial nature; the high level of technical skill required; the tactical planning and problem solving that each opponent brings; the combination of movement and fitness; improvement through dedication and hard work.
“One of the great things about squash is it really doesn’t matter what standard you play at, you can work on these things at any level, making it an addictive and captivating sport.”
