James Hayes [Head Squash Pro]
Born in Toronto and raised in Peterborough, James competed through high school at the Central Ontario level in badminton. However, once introduced to the game of squash James knew he had found his new passion! The transfer of skills to squash was quick and easy and it wasn’t long before he was competing at the provincial level. James’ skills developed enough to be ranked among the top 10 in Ontario and top 25 in Canada. In addition to competing at the provincial and national level James has been coaching since the early nineties and has been a full time squash professional since 1995. He has been fortunate enough to have coached 4 students to multiple national titles. Although having some great success coaching at the advanced level, James has not forgotten the “grass roots” of squash. It is at the beginner and intermediate levels that it is so important to establish good squash fundamentals. Whether you are looking for simple tips, in-depth analysis, match play, or “personal training” on the squash court, James can help make your “squash learning” a positive experience!
