How It Works
You send me a 5-minute recording of a competitive match and I do a "live recording analysis", which normally last about 15 minutes. The best type of matches to send me are the very close ones or the ones you lose. I can perform the analysis on friendly matches, but the opponent must be of equal standard.
Use a transfer service like WeTransfer to send me the video or link to an online video. If the video is longer than 5 minutes, let me know the start time you want me to analyse from.
During the analysis recording I talk about tactical and technical aspects of your game, pausing the video to highlight my points.
I post the video on my YouTube channel and make it unlisted, so only you can find and see it.
When you are ready to start or if you have any questions, email me. I will reply and give you an estimated delivery date.
Cost: 25 Euros (paid after you receive the video and via PayPal)
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the most commonly asked questions. If you have others please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer them.
After using this service, will I be able to beat my arch-nemesis? ABSOLUTELY! Well, possibly. If your video is of you playing him or her, make sure you tell me that you specifically want to beat this player and I will give you tips to not only improve your game, but also counter your nemesis’ strengths and exploit their weaknesses.
English is not my first language, can I still use the service? Yes, definitely. If I know English is not your first language, I will speak slower, use clearer words and avoid phrasal verbs. Please let me know when you send your initial email.
What happens if I don’t feel I received good value for money? Notice that you do not pay until AFTER you have received the feedback video. I ask you to pay AFTER because I understand this is a new way to do this. I trust you and I hope you trust me. If you really do not feel that what you got was good value, then you can pay what you think it is worth.
What type of feedback will I receive? I focus on two aspects: the tactical and technical. I will highlight tactical mistakes you made, but also highlight the correct shot selection too. I will talk about the technical issues you may have and how that affects your tactical choices.
I am a junior, can I still use this service? Yes, but I require contact and communication through a parent or guardian.
Can I pay with my credit card? Yes, but I require all payments to go through PayPal. You can use your credit card to pay via PayPal.
Will you offer other ways to pay in the future besides paypal? Honestly, I do not know. I may consider other payment services if they are easy to work with.
I only have a mobile phone. Can I use that to record my video? I have received videos recorded via a mobile phone and it was fine. of course, it depends on the quality of your phone and where it is positioned.
Can I see a sample feedback video? Yes. Here is a link to my original announcement video which has a short example.
I have a question that is not answered here, what should I do? Send me an email and I will do my best to answer your question: [email protected]
"The service provided by Phillip helped me see rapid improvement in my game.He provided very clear analysis of both the things I’m doing well and the things I need to improve.He walked me through a number of drills I can do on my own to target my weaknesses.In the month since I received my coaching video my player rating has steadily risen, and I feel much more confident on court.I’m sure I wouldn’t have had this success if I hadn’t used his service. I highly recommend Coach Phillip."

"Phillip did a video analysis for a match that I lost. I did not understand why I had lost the match against a similar level player. His voice over commentary on the video was very insightful, sometimes painful, and extremely helpful. He was able to quickly spot 4 areas where I was lacking, showing the issues clearly in specific points, and providing advice on how to address them moving forward. I was very impressed by how he could accurately identify some not totally obvious issues in my game, and very clearly articulate the technical and tactical problems and opportunities. I will certainly use this service again as my game improves."

Want to talk about your squash performance or your training? Do you have squash questions that you would like us to discuss?
I offer two options: 15 and 30 minutes. (Paid via PayPal)
You decide what we chat about, so please prepare some questions or talking points, and ideally send them to me beforehand, although that's not required.
I don’t need any videos of your playing - this is an opportunity for you to chat about squash, not an analysis of your playing.
This could be a perfect gift for a squash playing family-member, friend or colleague.
If you applied for the free video chat I offered previously, I will be in touch soon.
Depending on your location and my schedule, arranging a time suitable for both of us, may take a little time to organise.
When you are ready to start or if you have any questions, email me.
Cost: 15 Euros (15 minutes) and 25 Euros (30 minutes)(Paid via PayPal)
I plan to make each year's articles available as one PDF download.
The 2022 download will include all the miscellaneous articles from previous years.
I hope to create a link to the PDF version of each article on each page, meaning a PDF version will be free for each article.
The yearly download will simply be more convenient, which is why I plan to make a small charge for it.
When the service is available, I will announce it via this site and my social media platforms. If you have any questions about this service, email me.
