Over the past few months of 2017 Squash Waikato has run 13 coach development modules which has seen more coaches gain a national coaching qualification.
Already this year more than 90 keen teachers and club coaches have taken part in an interactive and practical module workshop where they have learned the skills required to coach their school-aged students or players for the upcoming season. By attending the coach development modules, the coaches will soon be passing on even more knowledge to the squash community.
Our impressive Waikato players have brought home 5 medals after competing at The World Masters Games which commenced on the 26th April at North Shore Squash Club. Waikato had 19 players entered into the Open Divisions of their respective age groups with 3 taking advantage of the recreation draw.
With 8 days of intense international competition, all players were fortunate to be a part of the Auckland Games which have been declared the best ever by The International Masters Games Association.
