The Bondi Squash Junior Open is back for 2017! Lock in the dates for this awesome event. This year we will be hosting a BBQ and fun for the junior players after the event! The bar will be fully stocked with soft drinks, the shop will be full of new gear and the Squash will be fast and frenetic.
Sydney Squash Academy welcomes Darcy Evans to the coaching team of the Academy. Darcy joins fellow Melbourne-based Squash Mechanics Touring Professional Rex Hedrick adding a mix of experience and youth to the team. Sydney Squash Academy will be operating from Willoughby Squash Club, Lane Cove Squash, and The Bondi Waverley Squash Club.
Darcy is well known in the Squash scene in Australia both as a player and coach. The Tasmanian-born professional made the move to Sydney in 2013 chasing his dream of becoming a Professional Player. In that time he has worked under and with some of the greatest coaches in the World including RMS head coach, ex-World #2 and World Champion Rod Martin. Darcy is currently ranked #9 in Australia and #208 on the PSA World Rankings. “Darcy is an amazing coach” Ian Aitken, Willoughby Squash Club’s owner states.”His ability to connect with his students, his attitude, personality, and skills are amongst the best I have encountered in more than 40 years in the industry.”
“Willoughby Squash has a huge junior player base, many of who have just competed in the AJO in Darwin.” Darcy states “I can’t wait to get on court with all the juniors and help them get to the top of their game. There are going to be a lot of changes at the clubs and I am looking forward to seeing all the kids continue to improve.” Sydney Squash Academy will also be developing Junior programs at its other venues Lane Cove Squash and The Bondi Waverley Squash Club.
