Pros

Mick Joint, Detroit Athletic Club. Mick started playing squash at the age of 5 in Melbourne, Australia. It did not take long for him to become one of Australia’s best juniors where he won 2 Australian titles, 7 state titles, and remained undefeated in my age group for 6 years. At the age of 17 I spent 15 months at the Australian Institute of Sport under the eyes of Geoff Hunt and Heather McKay. He joined PSA for 18 months, reaching the semi-finals and quarter- finals of many tournaments throughout Europe, reaching a top PSA ranking of 110. Overall, he has 6 national titles and over 25 years of international playing and coaching experience. He left Australia at the age of 19 to pursue a career in coaching and playing internationally, first in Argentina, then Germany, Canada and since December 2004 here in the USA.

Graeme Williams, Windsor Squash and Fitness Club. He has been involved in squash since the age of 8 when his dad used to hit with Graeme before his matches at their local club. After a moderately successful junior and student career, he became interested in helping others learn the game through coaching. He was fortunate to work as an England Squash and Racketball Regional Coach between 2009 – 2012 as well as work on various National Squads between 2010 – 2012 before relocating with his family to Canada. In 2010 Graeme was selected as the Head Squash Coach for the Great Britain student team at the World Student Games in Melbourne, Australia. This was followed by being selected one of three England Coaches at the 2011 5-Nations-Team Championships. These experiences offered him lots of opportunities to further develop his coaching style and understanding of the game. In coming to Canada Graeme hopes to continue his own development and also help develop new squash players of all ages and abilities.

Julian Wellings, Birmingham Athletic Club. Julian became fascinated with squash as a boy, and eventually won numerous international tournaments both as a junior and 30+ player. He has coached many juniors to rank nationally within the top-ten of their age group. He is proud to have helped many players achieve academic excellence by providing them access to colleges and universities through the game of squash. Julian played full time on the PSA tour from 1992-2002, and reached a world ranking of 42nd. He currently develops the adult and junior programming at the Birmingham Athletic Club as well as Tournament Director for the Motor City Open.
John Seidel, The Toledo Club. John came to squash late, relative to most pros, following a football injury in high school. His Dad brought him down to the Indianapolis AC to play squash where he found himself infected with the ‘squash bug.’ He has been blessed to be surrounded by wonderful mentors, and coaches throughout his career including: his Dad-Wild Bill, Jim McQueenie Professional and AD of the Indy AC, and his college coach Bob Snider all of whom have been indelible, positive influences on my life. John played #1 singles for SUNY Stony Brook and competed on a top 10 intercollegiate team. Following school, he dabbled on the WPSA hardball tour, and performed teaching professional stints at the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis, and the Baltimore Country Club before arriving at the Toledo Club. His career highlights include finishing in the top 25 for college players and being the finalist for the Skillman Intercollegiate Sportsmanship Award. John was fortunate to qualify for several North American Open championships and has won singles/doubles titles in seven different states and in Canada. Representing the USA in Lapham Grant and IMAST 35+ teams has been a great honor for him. Playing for Team Great Lakes, winning two NACAD McQueenie Cup team competitions, playing dubs with partner Rob ‘Roberto’ Graves, and teaching his kids and other junior players to play the game they love is simply the best! The satisfaction gained in seeing a pupil, under your tutelage, master a skill in competition is an immense dividend of being a squash professional. In the end, however, it’s always the camaraderie, great friendships, and connections that make squash such a great game to be associated with. See you on the court!
