Message from Sam Hodgkins LSC Head Coach

I have thoroughly enjoyed working as Head Coach at Leicester Squash Club for the past 18 months and it is with great regret that I am leaving the club.

The achievement that I am most proud of during my time at Leicester has been the work that has been done on the Junior Academy. We now have between 40 and 50 juniors attending every Saturday morning, with over 140 juniors on our database. I think this makes us one of the largest junior squash setups in the country.

I would like to thank the committee and members for everything that they have done for me and wish the new coach the very best of luck!
