Singh is a former First-Team All-American squash player at Trinity College where he captained the 2010 National Championship team. He is currently ranked #8 on Pro Squash Tour and is the Head Squash Coach at Avon Old Farms School.
Singh, who is originally from India, played on the PSA World Tour before coming to America and studying at Trinity College. He has a strong sense of the skill set and training required to be an elite player but also possesses a balanced approach to sport.
“Squash for me is a life-sport because it keeps a squash player healthy both mentally and physically for as long as one plays and also because it teaches us so much about life,” says Singh.
“I am sure this is the case for many sports but I can only speak for squash. I learned squash mostly by watching players and less through coaching. I saw the most improvement in my game when I was a student at Trinity College.”
Singh was a top recruit for Trinity College. “Trinity’s Squash team had some of the most talented squash players from all over the world,” continued Singh. “Coach Assaiante, was a father figure to all of us in the team, and he taught us more about life than squash. He supported us in whatever path we chose in life. And we had the peace of mind that in case we fail, he will be there for us.
“Each player had his own style of play and each one was equally effective in the right circumstances. Coach Assaiante treated each squash player's outlook on the game with respect and suggested changes that would only make the squash player more comfortable in his style. This environment of support and diversity both on and off the court made the players willing to try new approaches and yet be comfortable in their own skin.”
Singh Squash Academy is based on these ideals of freedom and support. “In my experience with squash, I have learned that there are many approaches to learn the game. Singh Squash Academy’s goal is to bring the most diverse group of coaches and professional squash players to the keen learner and help him figure out what works for him best,” concluded Singh.
