Squash Tips: PhotoCoaching – Analysis of Nicol David Practicing

In this video I analyse a photograph of Nicol David practicing. I look at her head, arms, wrist, shoulders and leg position and discuss what club players can learn from the photo.

This is the first in a new series of videos that I hope will become popular.

Very near the end of the video, I mention I don’t know who the player is she is practicing. It is of course Peter Genever, who I have not seen or spoken to in twenty years, so I hope he will forgive me – Sorry Peter!

This photgraph was taken from an article entitled “The Rise of Squash” on Blogspot:

At the time of publication, I was unable to receive permission to sue this photograph. If you are the owner of this image and would like credit or, hopefully not, me to remove this video, please email me.

If you are a photographer and would like one of your photographs used, please don’t hesitate to mail me. Also, if you have seen a great squash photograph that you would like me to analyse, please send me the link and I will endeavour to get permission to use it.

Hi, I’m phillip. I’m an ex-professional squash coach and have been lucky enough to work with some amazing coaches and players.

Although I no longer coach squash professionally, I feel I still have knowledge and insight to offer. That’s why I started making videos and hope that viewers find them useful.

I have plenty of plans and ideas for future videos, but I won’t detail them here at this time.

If you have ANY questions about me, my coaching videos or this patreon, don’t hesitate to contact me at or even visit my website: CoachPhillip.Net

Subscribe to my CoachPhillipNet YouTube channel to see a variety of videos to help club players improve.

  • brilliant !

  • Great video, coach!

  • when you are on the T watching your opponent, do suggest watching the ball, or the opponent's racket and wrist? I find it distracting to watch the ball

  • I love your tutorials!! I can't currently played because of strained Achilles, so at least I can practice in my mind and watch these, which always give me something to focus on when either practicing or playing. Thank you.

  • That is Peter Genever.

  • WOW! This is very helpful! You pointed out everything that I normally do not do. It's also extremely helpful to someone like myself that reside in an area where Squash is almost unheard of. I can now also come back to this video after recording myself doing backhand practice. Will you be doing something like this with forehand as well? Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!

  • The grip must be grab strong or not?

  • This was a really well made and useful video. Thank you for your free coaching! We don't have a squash pro in Indianapolis where I live so this is gold to me. Gives me stuff to work on and think about when I practice.

  • I've discovered you channel recently and I am glad i did.
    I appreciate the effort and time you put in making these videos. Some of the coaching you did has been eye opening.
    I am an amateur player, discovered squash 3 years ago (wish i discovered it sooner), and i absolutely love it.
    I noticed a pattern in my behavior. When my frustration is high, i re-watch your videos, and helps me a lot mentally.
    Thank you. Keep up the good work.
