Squash and Racketball Coaching

September 2023:  The Club’s coaching contract with Elite Squash is currently suspended – with Hadrian Stiff (the owner of Elite Squash) moving to the US, John Welton (the club coach) is now focussed on running Elite Squash from his Bristol base and therefore regrettably has to leave Lansdown.  Junior Squash coaching will remain with John Welton and another coach is being sourced to get our full coaching programme back on track.
