British Squash Pro Lee Scott Offers Zenith Squash Academy Summer Program for All Ages & Skill Levels at the Louisville Boat Club
May 12, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsMay 12, 2017 - Louisville, KY. Lee Scott, professional squash player and qualified Advanced Coach, is expanding his program for the 2017 season at Zenith Squash Academy in Louisville, KY. This summer, Scott is offering a variety of options including several 5-day camps to help younger players learn more about squash and hone their skills, along with numerous full day intensives for players of every age and skill level.
While a small, but enthusiastic group of local squash players has enjoyed this indoor racquet
game for years, in October 2016 British squash pro Lee Scott accepted a position at the
Louisville Boat Club (LBC), moving from England to Louisville with his family to support LBC's
growing racquets program, and to increase the popularity of the sport regionally.
"My aim is to really help the kids and adults improve their playing ability and knowledge of the
game and increase the awareness of squash in this area," Scott explains. "My plan is to build
more courts and really grow the numbers that play this fantastic game."
Squash is played similarly to a more familiar sport, tennis. Both require a racquet, a ball, and
either two or four players. Squash courts are smaller than tennis courts, but squash players
cover more ground during a match because of the game's fast paced nature. Squash requires a
high level of physical fitness because of the variety of movements. A relatively short game will
still yield an intensive cardiovascular workout. In just one hour of squash, a player may burn
approximately 600-1000 calories.
While the health benefits of squash certainly play a part in the game's growing popularity, it has also garnered increased attention for a very simple reason: it is fun. Scott has been playing squash since the age of nine, and has had many successes through his professional career as both a player and a coach. Most recently he enjoyed an impressive victory in the British National Squash Championships for the Men's Over 45 division in 2016. Watch the full video here. As a lover of the sport himself, Scott emphasizes the core component of joy in all of his classes.
