In this episode, we connect with Alan Thatcher, who has been helping to grow the Sport of Squash at all levels from the Professional Tour down to the grassroots. Several years ago he launched squashmad.com which is a fantastic sources for news, articles, activities on how to the grow the sport but most recently he released a book he co-authored with Rod Gilmour called Jahangir Khan 555: The Untold Story Behind Squash’s Invincible Champion and Sport’s Greatest Unbeaten Run.
In our conversation, we cover a range of topics from a behind the scenes look at writing his most recent book as well as his role with the Canary Wharf Professional Squash Tournament. But also get into the weeds about his grass roots efforts of growing the sport and some key factors that could truly help sharing the sport we all love. We both thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and hope you do too!
