SQUASHED FOUNDER AND COACH
SquashED was born from Phillip Barker’s dream to provide students in America with a platform for the kind of training, attention and mentoring he received in England as a junior player and subsequently, on the Professional World Tour. Phil Barker was one of the only professional squash players to achieve a University degree whilst holding a top 40 ranking in the world, so he knows first-hand the difficulties of balancing education with training.
Relocating from England to the US, Barker became the youngest Head Squash Professional of any member’s club on the East Coast. Over seven years, Barker built the Greenwich Country Club’s squash program into a nationally recognized hub for performance, growth and learning.
Barker's impressive track record proves his effectiveness: 25 of his students are nationally ranked players and over 40 have gone on to play collegiate squash. He has coached the last 4 Brunswick Varsity #1 players, as well as other members of the Varsity Team.
