Losing is important.

"Soup of the Day"...just got Serious!

No matter how great a golfer you are, you are not going to win every game. That’s not to say there isn’t something to be said for approaching your game as if you are going to win. However, you are defining winning at any given moment. A winning mentality is accompanied by hope, determination, confidence, and is, in some cases, self-fulfilling.

But winning, and a constant need to win, can also be accompanied by arrogance, self-righteousness, and a refusal to ever accept you might be wrong. It can alienate others and reduces opportunities to learn and grow.  

Do you always have to win? What do you gain by being right? Are you sure you’re right? Try being so open minded and generous in spirit that you honestly consider the possibility that you may not be right. And that either way it doesn’t matter. And give the other person the space to express their perception. Maybe they are right? Their perception is as real and true to them as yours is to you. Maybe you are both right. 

It’s pretty awesome what can happen when you let go of the need to be right.

Racquet of the Day

Don't Underestimate your Serve!

The serve in many sports is seen as a powerful weapon and gives a big advantage. However, this is often overlooked in squash!

Many players tend to rush their serve, opting for power over accuracy, and see it just as a way to start the point instead of a way to end it.

A great serve can force a player to defend early in the point and create a lot of attacking opportunities.

Master your serve:

  • Take your time! It’s the only shot in the game where you have full control, so there’s no need to rush.
  • Use the full height of the front wall. Sometimes the highest shots are the hardest.
  • Vary the pace. Take your opponent out of rhythm by mixing softer, higher serves with lower, powerful serves.
  • Take the T. Your momentum after you serve should naturally carry your feet to the T - the most important part of the court!

And don’t forget… you should try and target your opponents’ weaker backhand side. So, remember if you’re playing a left hander, that will mean serving from the left box!

For questions about keeping your Squash skills razor sharp, you can connect with Laurence directly here.
