Regional Academy

“The West Midlands Regional Academy brings some of the best juniors from the West Midlands together to train in an Elite Squash environment”

Players receive

  • high class coaching
  • fitness and nutritional advice
  • strength and conditioning training
  • matches against other academies
  • high quality Academy clothing.

Players are subsidised with thanks to the Academy’s incredible sponsors:

  • St.Bernards Care
  • Strawberry Bank Hotel
  • T8 Sports


Head coaches Chris Tasker and Jon Tate, are vastly experienced, both playing and coaching, and are committed to helping as many juniors as possible move along the junior talent pathway, through to Aspire and National Squads. 

Do I qualify?

To be considered for selection, players must be:

  • based in the West Midlands
  • players who are part of the Aspire set up, may be involved, however, Core Aspire players will only be taken into consideration if it is felt that their commitments aren’t already too big, or calendar too full.
  • Juniors who live and train within the region, but represent Home Nation teams, may also be part of the squads, but along the same criteria as Core Aspire players.
