The Double Dot Squash Academy programme has launched at the Herne Bay Ponsonby Rackets Club this week. This programme is for our most advanced athletes who are highly dedicated to their squash development and have goals of reaching the very highest level in squash.
The athletes in the Double Dot Squash Academy based at Herne Bay include Callum Goodson, Finn Goodson, George Danielson, and Riley McCracken. These athletes join the Academy alongside our existing Academy athletes from the Browns Bay Racquets Club. Our Academy will be working hard developing their squash throughout the upcoming squash season, and will once again be attending three national junior championships throughout the country, in addition to the Palmerston North PSA Tournament. The Double Dot Squash Academy is well known for assist athletes to achieve significant improvement in a short time period. The majority of Academy athletes in the past have achieved top Auckland and New Zealand grading points improvement, moving from J grade through to C grade in under one year.
"We are excited to be launching the Double Dot Squash Academy at the Herne Bay Ponsonby Rackets Club and look forward to welcoming athletes from this club to the Academy programme which has proved to be highly successful for other athletes. Our Academy programme is now operating at two different squash clubs which will allow for new opportunities and for the Academy athletes from both clubs to work together to achieve common goals and attend Academy Tournament Trips and other events together as a unified group. The Academy programme establishes a connection between athletes of the Browns Bay Racquets Club and the Herne Bay Ponsonby Rackets Club which will continue to grow stronger over time" says Double Dot Squash Director and Academy Coach Jarrod van Driel.
