“No matter how close you are with a [male] coach, they just don’t go through the same stuff as you. To have a female role model who’s a coach is really, really important.”
In a Women’s Squash Week interview, US No.1 and World No.5 Amanda Sobhy explains the importance of female role models in encouraging women and girls to get involved – and stay involved – in squash.
Women’s Squash Week (18-24 September) is an international campaign that aims to celebrate and raise the profile of women and girls in squash.
This year’s theme is #YouBelong and throughout the week WSF will highlight how women and girls belong in all aspects of the game.
