The East Coast Squash Academy

Founded in 2011 when Aaron Frankcomb retired from the Professional Squash Tour, the East Coast Squash Academy set out to create a business model to expand the presence of squash within local communities surrounding squash centres. The first installation was at Willoughby Squash Club where Frankcomb was the club’s resident squash pro until early 2017.

Since inception, the Academy has produced some stellar results including: Attracting a handful of junior players with aspirations of going on the professional (PSA) tour. Its junior program has the biggest contingent of players on the NSW Squash Junior ranking list, with players on the NSW junior state teams, Australian junior teams and Australian senior players. The Academy has developed NSW and Australian Junior Champions.

The Academy has been home base to two full time senior players that have reached careers highs of top 240 in the world on the Men’s PSA Tour. Its best female professional reached a top world ranking of 130.

The junior program has boasted (pun intended) over 500 children participating in weekly squads and training sessions. Memberships and participation in squads increased by 100% and 300% respectively and tournament registrations reached at an all-time high.

Australia’s First Women’s Squash Camp for Women by Women


Australia’s First Women’s Squash Camp
For Women By Women

Sydney, 13 July 2015: Squash a gentleman’s sport? Not anymore. The East Coast Squash Academy based in Sydney, NSW is changing the face of squash with the announcement of Australia’s first All Women’s Squash Camp created for women by women.

“There is no reason why more girls and women shouldn’t play squash” explains Aaron Frankcomb, East Coast Squash Academy’s Founder. “Squash is accessible to all levels of physical ability, age, and level of ambition. In the past year, we have more than doubled the participant of female players and thought the time was right to create an all-female squash camp.”

The idea for an all-female camp came from other sports that used this approach as an introduction to their sport – so why not consider it for squash? All-girls or all-women squash camps have been run successfully overseas, but never in Australia – UNTIL NOW.

The camp will feature an impressive all-female faculty, including current World #31 (and former World #13) Donna Urquhart, East Coast Squash Academy Assistant Professional Moana Gray (former World #131), and top USA College Player Tiffany Hau.

As its name suggests, this Women’s Squash Camp is exclusive to female players and structured to accommodate first-timers to the sport as well as competitive players. Senior and masters players are expected to be the majority of participants with the encouragement of mother-daughter registrations.

”It’s always super exciting for me to come to a squash centre and see women competing with men on court, no matter the skill level or age,” Tiffany Hau candidly admits. “Even back home in the U.S., camps like this are either not running or are not marketed enough. It’s a shame for the sport and for women who feel discouraged and ignored in a sport dominated by men. I’m hoping this unique initiative can jump start the growth of women players in squash, at both the club and professional levels.”

Don’t for a second think this is not a serious squash camp! Participants will be on court for more than 12 hours and will also be privy to two hours of sports psychology training by the Academy’s mental toughness coach and resident faculty member, Dr. Marc Dussault.

Dr Dussault’s keynote presentation “How to avoid mental mistakes to instantly improve your squash game” has been a game changer for players across Australia and Canada. The mental aspect of the game is one of the four pillars reinforced by the Academy, along with technical, physical, and strategic development.

The camp will run the weekend of Saturday and Sunday August 22nd-23rd at Willoughby Squash Club (443 Willoughby Road, Willoughby NSW 2068).

Included in the registration fee is all the equipment needed as well as two catered meals and healthy snacks throughout the weekend. Expected to be scheduled only once a year, this is the ideal opportunity for girls and women to  step into the world of squash. The inaugural pricing (early bird pricing is A$495) has been set to entice newcomers to the sport.

Thanks to Amelia Priest of Just Snacks for sending the original notice through. She has done her bit to help as I have (getting the word out to more people), now it’s your turn!

Sydney To The Gong Bike Ride

As you would expect, I get requests to donate to charities all the time. I prefer to keep my philanthropic and charitable contributions private and confidential, but every once in a while something strikes me as unique or different in the approach, strategy or tactic used. Today’s post is a case in point. Dr Cary Fraser, a Sydney Eastern Suburb dentist with a dental practice based in Double Bay is going to squeeze into his cycling shorts and go the full 90 Kms… on the Sydney To The Gong Bike Ride — But that’s not what caught me eye.

It’s not that it’s a great charity that does exemplary work. Take a look at their donation page below – it’s brilliant. They SHOW you EXACTLY what each level of donation can do – That’s totally Exponential. I wanted to share that with you to motivate you to make your own personal donation to Dr Cary Fraser’s account or click here ->

Australian Engineering Week 2010

Tomorrow is the start of Australian Engineering Week 2010. As an engineer, Engineering Week brings back a lot of memories, most of them fuzzy for some reason…

Anyway, I thought I would remind you of it since Engineering Education Australia has an engineer’s blog for Australian Engineers amongst a wide variety of services.

I like their slogan “Make it so” – a tribute to Star Trek and the fact that engineers “make it so“. Click on a hyperlink and have a look around – I’m sure there must be something of interest if you’re an engineering or construction professional or technician OR if you have a son or daughter who one day aspires to join the engineering profession!

If you haven’t looked into what’s covered, click on the event hyperlink. The event page says it all – what it doesn’t reveal are secrets like the fact that I am announcing that I will stop doing doing Internet Marketing events in 2011… My 2010 Internet Marketing Bootcamp is the last one I am doing (outside of my Elite Platinum Program) which means this is the last time you’ll get access to my Exponential Internet Marketing Strategies UNLESS you become a Platinum Member…

No hype, just REAL cash in the bank.

If that’s what’s you want – come to the FINAL ENCORE presentation of The Exponential Extravaganza – it’s only taking place in Sydney and only THIS Saturday. Don’t get left behind.
