Xamsa Squash Camp

Regular price $40.00 CAD Save $-40.00 CAD

Xamsa's goal is to support grassroots squash movements by offering camps to club players of all levels, beginner to advanced, at an affordable price. Headed by former PSA pro David Phillips, the event usually takes place at the prestigious Club Atwater conveniently located in Downtown Montreal. Along with 5 more high-level coaches, more than 200 participants got a chance to improve their squash while making new friends and hitting partners. The camp consisted of 4 sessions, with each session emphasizing a different aspect of the game: foundations, attacking, movement and gameplay. 

Below you will see the original poster and summaries of those sessions describing the general layout and drills, along with some of the fun experiences. 

We are looking forward to running more camps in the future that will be accessible to everyone, and we hope you guys/gals will be interested!

      Dear fellow squash players, my name is Tim Burganov and I will be taking care of warranty issues. The following is information about the Xamsa Warranty Program. If you have any concerns after reading, please send me an email and I will get back to you shortly.

      The idea behind creating Xamsa Squash is to promote squash and to offer high quality racquets at fair prices. We do our best to avoid any manufacturing defect however if there is a problem, we are here to resolve it. Due to relatively high cost compared to selling price, we cannot afford a no-fault warranty program.

      You are the only person who knows exactly what happened to your racquet therefore we leave it up to you to decide.

      If your racquet broke within 30 days of purchase, we kindly ask you to assess the damage and choose one of the following options:

      1. Manufacturing defect. If you believe that your racket broke due to manufacturing defect, please let me know and I will arrange for a replacement at no charge.
      2. Contributed damage. If you do not think it was a manufacturing defect, but believe the racquet was nonetheless a little too fragile, let's meet half way. We will be happy to sell you a new racket with 50% discount.
      3. Significant impact with the wall causing the racket to break. This is not a warranty case however we understand how frustrating it can be to break a racquet so quickly. We will gladly give you a 25% discount if you would like to buy a new racquet.

      Please note: the custom stringing is not covered by warranty. There is a $15 shipping fee for the replacement racquet (Canada and the US). For other countries, the shipping fee will depend on your location. To avoid the shipping expenses for the replacement racquet, you can buy any racquet and we will enclose a replacement racquet at no extra shipping fee. If we need the broken racquet back, we will let you know and will provide a pre-paid return shipping label.

      If your racquet broke after 30 days of purchase but you only played with it a couple of times, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Please rest assured that we will find a satisfactory solution.

      Worth the Drive!

      This was a great experience. Well organised/hosted event offering content with good explanation and description with constructive feedback throughout. Our group was of a similar level which I feel helped greatly. David and Tash adapted the course content well to the group and were able to keep us all involved. Hope to bring a group next time!

      Mona Ebrahimnazari (Montreal, CA)
      Too many person in one court

      I really appreciate your work
      I think that would be better if in each court 3 persons are trained and they are at the same level
      I will be joining for your next camp for sure

      Augustin Parjadis (Montreal, CA)
      Great experience !

      Good pieces of advice from great teachers in a friendly and fairly competitive environment, the only downside being that all of this was too short !

      Philip Proulx (Montreal, CA)
      Good but too similar to last squash camp

      Enjoyed it, coaches/staff are great but the drills were pretty much the same as last years camp ;)
