Walk series moves to Whitby

Whitby WalkWhitby walk png

Following on from the questionable health benefits of the Gallon Walk earlier in the summer, there was decent challenge in September’s walk from Whitby. Everyone looked full of cheer at the start but this was significantly challenged with almost constantĀ fog and that rain that makes you wet never far away. Not helping was the regular drip feed of runners doing the 62 mile trek from Guisborough to Filey.

Anyway having broken the back of the walk, the day dried, the sun soothed and fog and spirits lifted coming into Saltburn before the victory stretch to the club. The mist must have hidden large numbers of walkers as once back at the club around treble the number of people spotted on the walk shared in the celebrations and food.

Special thanks go to Paul and Debbie Wilson for the remarkable cruelty of meeting us in their van every couple of miles just to gloat and also to Nikki Smith for organising it all and the numerous folk who chipped in with food for the night. There was even a positive contribution to club funds from it all.

Final word must go to the two nippers, Greg Wass and Sean Maley, both having walked further than they’ve ever done before and both completing the full quest.

Level Two Coaching

Level 2Level 2Level 2 v2Level 2 v2Level 2 v2Level 2






Redcar has been very fortunate to have just hosted the North East’s only publically advertised Level 2 coaching course this year. An example of how rare these courses are can be seen by attendees coming from as far as Essex and the course was fully subscribed.

The programme involves four full days split over two weekends. Attendees have the first weekend learning, then a month to compile numerous proofs of coaching individual and group sessions as well as doing a referees exam, before returning for the second weekend which includes a full day’s practical examination of on-court coaching by two England Squash coaches.

Amongst the group were two coaches from Redcar – Maria Maley and Sam Hill – both of whom passed, so many congratulations to them. The qualification, which is highly updated to be based on the new philosophy of the five pillars of squash, allows people to coach up to and including county level.
