If you are thinking of taking your first steps onto the squash court or are already a seasoned pro, our coaches can make a huge difference to your game.

Coaching is available on a 1:1 basis to all ages and abilities. Our coaches also host a number of group sessions, including private group lessons, clinics for box players, and junior coaching on Saturdays and Mondays.

Neal Brooker

Colets welcomed Neal Brooker in the Autumn of 2018 as the Junior Development Coach. Neal has since risen to the Head of Squash and Racketball at the Club. Having competed on the Professional Squash Association World Tour and been ranked inside the top 250 in the world, he is now spearheading the development of the department.

He began coaching 9 years ago, and now coaches all age groups and standards including nationally ranked juniors and professional players.

In addition to running the 1st team, Neal is working hard alongside Ruudi to develop our junior section and currently runs junior coaching courses on Monday afternoon and Saturday mornings.

Ruudi Clarke

A life-long member of Colets, Ruudi has recently joined the coaching staff in the Squash & Racketball department – having represented Colets Squash since the age of 14!

Spending most of his time in-club either on poolside as a lifeguard or on the squash courts developing his game, Ruudi is now deputising Neal and assisting not only with the Junior Coaching here at Colets, but helping lead Club Night (often jumping on-court to play members)!

For more on Ruudi’s squash (and football) background, check out his coaching profile.

Ruudi offers one-to-one coaching, as well as group sessions.
