As I've mentioned before, I'm no good at following instruction. I've been taught a few things but most of what I know about playing squash, I learned from the Internet. When people are trying to teach me a particular stroke or footwork, the information comes in too fast for me to absorb. I'm just a slow learner.
As I'm not paying for one on one coaching sessions, I think I'm better off reading and watching instructional videos. With those options, I can take my time absorbing the information.
I played squash after work today. The training squad I watched last week was on the courts. They either finished training early or their coach didn't show up. They weren't seriously training when I arrived, so I joined them. I've developed an aversion to serious training.
Spent the last few hours on youtube watching badminton and squash videos. There are some good instructional videos on the Internet and some of them are quite good. High resolution videos at short enough length to keep my interest. The best thing is you can always pause and rewind. Something you can't always do when someone is showing you the technique in person.
So yeah, I've learnt a few things I can try out on the badminton courts tomorrow.
