Nick Matthew Academy

Train with three times world champion Nick Matthew.

Nick Matthew OBE, 3 x World Squash Champion launched the Nick Matthew Academy at Hallamshire in September 2015. The NMA complements the Apex programme at Development level and looks to progress young players at an Elite level. Nick works closely with Neil Guirey, Head coach of the NMA, to support and grow the Squash programme throughout the club and beyond.

'I've worked with Neil for a number of years and I know first hand what an excellent coach he is. When Hallamshire found someone of his experience and expertise it was the perfect time to set up my Academy. I'm very much hands on, but Neil is the driving force of the NMA day in, day out. I'm proud of the progress we have made in less than 2 years; going from having 2 Nationally ranked juniors to over 20 in that time, as well as a National Champion in the Boys U17's. The number of juniors coming through the schools programme is fantastic too & we couldn't have done it without the support of the club & our main sponsors, One Health. The plan is to turn Hallamshire in to the premier squash club, not only in this country, but in the world'.
