Liz Irving on modern squash coaching with SquashLab
SPORTS BULLETIN As a world-class coach, Liz Irving is perhaps most famous for her formidable partnership with Malaysian legend Nicol David, who was World No.1 for a record-breaking 108 months in succession. Recently, though, Irving has been a leader in using modern technology to make the game more accessible than ever, with SquashLab Communities –  which connects people via global sporting apps with a view that they will have access to a wide variety of sport learning content / know-how and coaching skills – her latest venture. Irving explains: “SquashLab Communities is an app with plenty of squash learning content for squash in a progressive way from absolute beginner to international level player. “I have developed it because there is absolutely nothing on the market for the average player with any real substance as it is all top-end or development. The question is: ‘Who is looking after the 95% of the rest of the playing community and helping them progress and have really good resources at their disposal?’ “We have it for squash in Australia at the moment and it is endorsed by Squash Australia and all members get the app as part of their membership. It is filmed in a deliberate way to speak simple language to the user and very focussed on the content and is very progressive in its learning. Once you do one module like a six-week span and you have finished that, and it’s all achievable goals, then you go on to the next course and help them on their journey. “We will also be joining forces with Alan Thatcher at World Squash Day and this will be an opportunity for people to download the app, get on board and support World Squash Day and we are pretty excited about that. “So the user will have an interesting experience that is only going to get better and it is a passion project that I am very excited about it and the opportunity it will give to players to get on board and make the most of some great content and resources.”

I always have a lead, I managed to choke it then. I tried not to think about it at all. I was cramping from game three to the fifth in my fingers, I tried not to show it to Paul. I was waiting for the opportunities to go for the shots and when it’s there, that’s the way to beat Paul. I can’t be negative, I had to play my game at the right time and I’m happy with the win.” Al Tamimi will have a rest day before playing England’s George Parker, who beat the USA’s Todd Harrity, in the next round. Elsewhere, Victor Crouin continued his terrific start to the season with a 3-1 win over No.7 seed Joel Makin to reach the third round of the Qatar Classic in his first season as a full-time professional “I came in and just wanted to win one game. “I just wanted to win the game and I believed that I could win the match. After winning the first game I knew I could go and get the win. I’m really happy about that.” Crouin will play England’s Patrick Rooney for a place in the quarter-finals after Rooney downed Nathan Lake 3-0 in an all-English affair. Also through to the next round is top seed Ali Farag, who received a walkover after an injury to Cesar Salazar, and defending champion Diego Elias, who overcame a spirited performance from India’s Saurav Ghosal to progress. “I won my biggest title here last year and played one of my best matches of my career [in last year’s final against Coll]. I think I’ve always played great here. I guess I just have to get used to the court again and I’ll be ok,” Elias said.

Catalina invites world to share coffee to promote World Squash Day
Sports Bulletin Report ISLAMABAD:-Colombian squash star Catalina Pelaez has once again invited the world of squash to share a coffee to promote World Squash Day. Pelaez, the former world No.56 who has won numerous medals for Colombia, has drawn on her skills as a photographer and graphic artist to produce another set of images to promote squash’s biggest global grassroots project. She said: “People often get together over a coffee to make plans, so what better way for the world of squash to plan World Squash Day than by sharing a virtual coffee.” World Squash Day takes place on Saturday October 15th and founder Alan Thatcher said: “It’s wonderful to see Catalina’s brilliant creative skills helping to promote squash’s biggest global party. “Simply by sharing one of these images on social media, clubs and federations can reinforce the message that it’s time to get together over a coffee to make plans to grow the game on World Squash Day.” In a recent article for Squash Mad, Catalina described a speech she made at a women’s networking event in Bogota. She held the audience spellbound as she told how she was rescued from a 2003 terrorist car bomb attack at the squash club where she was training in Bogota. Pelaez said: “In the year 2003, I was a victim of the Colombian armed conflict. I was in a car bomb explosion at Club El Nogal, led by the F.A.R.C, which was one of the biggest terrorists’ groups in my country. “I had already started playing squash and I was improving a lot. After this terrorist attack, I was lucky that a man found me, picked me up and took me out of the club. I had many injuries, couldn’t walk for two months, and couldn’t play squash for about five months. “Most of the time, all I could think of was to get better to be able to do sports. Sports was my motivation and my salvation during those hard times.” Seven years after her terrible injuries in the car bomb attack, she attended Trinity College in the USA, before reaching a highest world ranking of 56 in October 2015. In 2019, she and Miguel Rodriguez won the gold medal in the mixed doubles competition in the Pan-American Games in Lima, Peru. Catalina has won numerous gold medals for Colombia in the South American Games, in team events and doubles, and she won the singles championship in 2018 in Cochabamba, Bolivia. World Squash Day is endorsed by the World Squash Federation and the PSA Foundation, and is supported by federations and clubs around the globe.
