Wealth of knowledge shared at squash clinic

Squash: Technique was the name of the game last weekend when pro coach Robyn Prentice took to the court with squash players from around the region.

Held at the Chinchilla Squash Courts, more than 25 players, including 10 juniors from Chinchilla and Jandowae attended.

During the two days Ms Prentice corrected grips, footwork and swing actions, and held a rules refresher evening.

Chinchilla Squash Club president Teneale Luckraft said the weekend was a tremendous success.

"It's such a privilege to have someone of Robyn's calibre visit Chinchilla and the knowledge and experience she offered our players was invaluable,” she said.

"It's not often we see high profile coaches come out this way and what Robyn was able to do with our players in such a short amount of time was remarkable.”

Ms Prentice has more than 50 years of experience and has coached at both international and national levels. Her own squash career includes world titles and Australian and Queensland representation.

Ms Prentice is the current Queensland Masters president and Australian Masters team leader, and her passion lies in developing junior squash.

The club hopes to bring Ms Prentice back to Chinchilla in the future.
