promoting SKILLZ in squash



Liz’s love for coaching comes from an early age, having completed her first coaching qualification while still at school. Liz competed in a number of Jarvis/Kaplan Cup Inter Provincial Tournaments representing Northern Transvaal and Natal. After completing a BA Phys Ed degree from the Univ of Pretoria and a Higher Diploma in Education from the Univ of Natal, she spent a couple of years gaining coaching and playing experience in Israel, Switzerland, and the USA. Although a serious car accident ended her competitive days, Liz continued being involved with squash coaching and administration.

In 2017 Liz was qualified by the WSF as a Level 1 Tutor and in 2019 will take up the position with the Africa Squash Federation as the continent’s. Liz will be presenting the Level 1 coaching course in Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Malawi as a starting point to this position with the World Squash Federation.

Liz is Head Coach at both TuksSquash and Menlopark Muurbal Akademie (MMA).



Alex has been involved in squash as a player, coach, and administrator for most of her life. Moving over from tennis at high school, she represented Northerns at a junior level and until recently still actively played in the NSA Women’s league. Once her sons started enjoying the game, Alex got involved in coaching again. She has done exceptionally well with start-up programs and can motivate beginners to start playing the game, helping them to reach a reasonable standard where they can start competing on the Provincial circuit.

Alex is also the backbone to the administration involved in World of Squash and is the office keeper when World of Squash is running Camps and National Academies.
