What the coaches say

We’ve gone from strength to strength over the past few years, both with our performance levels and our offer for our players. We have a very strong group of players who are all making very positive strides towards their goals.

We are also very firmly in a position to support our players in the best possible manner, with a thorough programme and expertise right across the board in terms of the support services. If you want to excel academically and athletically then you need look no further."

Steve Townsend, Head Squash Coach

As a Platinum-Level Performance Club, Performance Squash receives the highest level of individual support on the Team Warwick Performance Program.

Our strength and conditioning team will research the principles behind world-class squash performance and will adapt these principles to be readily applied in the University Sport setting, thus allowing our Squash athletes to reduce their injury risk and to fulfil their athletic potential.”
