UK Racketball Coaching tips

 

Introduction

Hi my name is Mark Fuller and I am a professional squash player currently ranked in the top 200 in the world for squash and 7th in the UK for racketball. Here I have provided some coaching tips to help you improve your game and for you to learn more about the sport, no matter what level you play at.

If you are just starting out in racketball then check out my beginners guide. Below the tips are structured into three categories, basic, intermediate and advanced. You will notice some of the shots are repeated in each section, this is due to more depth being added in the more advanced stages.

I have also provided a few routines for you to be able to try out to see what level you are playing at.

I hope the tips help, if there are any topics which you would like me to cover then do please let me know and I will create an article as soon as possible.

UK Racketball Coaching tips

Coaching tips by Mark Fuller - Squash world no 194



For those of you who have read any of my blogs know as a squash player I am playing at a standard somewhere between "club player" and "world number one" but my racketball standard is even harder to judge. My currant racketball CV is that I have won the Hallamshire Club Championships (which I played while I was still based in Sheffield) and have only been beaten once by Laura Hill (3 times national champion, and yes I know she’s a girl, she is also ridiculously good!) during an exhibition match in Nottingham.

With the work that I’m doing with UK-Racketball I thought it would be good to have a crack at the nationals this year and although I am aware how tough it will be. Both Daryl Selby and Tim Vale recently got their names on the trophy, it’s got to be worth a shot, at worst I will lose early and have longer to promote the site.

When I embarked on UK-Racketball a couple of people that I coach asked if I would be putting up any coaching tips as at the moment there is currently so little specific racketball coaching available. After searching on the internet I realized that this might be another unique idea for UK-Racketball.

One of the reasons why I hope that I make a good coach, is that no part of my game came easy for me, I had to work hard to improve every step of the way and because I started playing properly so late (at university) I was old enough when I learnt to remember exactly how I did it. I’m aware that these tips will not work for everyone and if they don’t work for you, you can always blame me. These are the ones that worked for me and their here to copy for anyone who wants to risk it.

The vast majority have been copied from the coaches that I have had in the past and who without I am certain I would have achieved very little. In two years of incredible effort Mark Hornby (who for very little personal reward) took me from an above average club player into someone capable of beating most of the weaker professional players. At the moment I am having coaching from the Nottingham team of Richard O’Conner and Gordon Hill who have transformed my game and given me new dimensions in both attack, speed and stability. Although my squash is definitely still a work in progress I am feeling better and better about the future of my game.
