Squash Camp Abroad
Summer Camp in Europe!
JUNE 18 – JULY 1, 2012
Where Are We Going?
Although Pyramid Squash has been hosting Squash Trips to Egypt for many years, this year we have decided to make trips to Germany – Cologne for the Pioneer Cup and the Netherlands –Amsterdam for the Dutch Junior Open.
Camp Schedule for both events
We will arrive 2 days prior to the tournament to get adjusted to the time difference and the courts. A light but long practice will ensure that everyone is ready to take on the exciting matches in the following days.
“When I watched all
those great kids
playing I got inspired
and wanted to train
harder”, said my son
when he returned
The coaches will ensure that all players will get up in the mornings with plenty of time to have a good breakfast and warmup. After our tournament day, or between if time permits, we will do some sightseeing and get a break from the club.
An important aspect about these two big events is that both tournaments are run on the MONRAD System which provides players with continuous matches. Players are not eliminated from the tournament, but rather continue to play matches until a final ranking is established.
Why this trip will change your game…
Playing squash at a club with coaches is a sure way of becoming a better player, however, taking the sport to a different country will be a whole different experience. When playing at a club, a player may sign up for an hour lesson, go home and forget about squash for the rest of the day. This trip will force the players to think about squash all day long. They will dream squash, they will eat squash, and most importantly, they will play squash; a lot of it, too.
“I was so motivating to see all the
other players and their coaches. Plus
seeing the Pyramids, the Khan Khalili
bazaar and the Egyptian museum
was a great educational experience.”
Squash is both a physical and mental game. When experiencing squash beyond what the player is used to at home, the player’s mental toughness is increased to an entirely new level. Playing the Pioneer Cup and Dutch Junior Open will open your eyes to a different world of tournaments. You will be facing players from all over the world with different skill levels, all competing towards a single goal; to be the best they can be at squash. After playing these huge tournaments, a simple competition in the U.S will feel very ordinary to the experienced squash player. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity, and take a minute to think about what you want to do this summer.
Choose to benefit from this trip, and it will be the best choice you have made to improve your squash game.
“It is incredible how much my son
improved after this trip. I don’t want to
brag about it, but his ranking went up
by 20 spots.”
We are experienced in taking campers outside of the U.S to experience new cultures and understand the intensity of squash on a global level.
