Meet the coaches

Keep things simple

When you speak to Rob Owen about squash he makes you realise that it’s a simple game that often gets over complicated. His philosophy centres around getting into good body positions, clean ball striking, creating options, and hitting the right shot at the right time.


His recent work with Paul Coll has been well documented and the impact of Rob’s coaching has seen the Kiwi rise to the top of the world rankings and become British Open Champion. 


We’re delighted to announce this new coaching camp, and we’ve been keen to work with Rob again since we launched the ‘If I were a betting man’ documentary in 2021.


Rob is a larger-than-life character with a wicked sense of humour and an encyclopedic knowledge of the game. The camp provides a truly extraordinary opportunity to understand the philosophy of one of the smartest minds in the sport. 


The camp will take place on the 25-26th of February at the Edgbaston Priory, Birmingham (England).
