England Squash has finalised a long-term mentoring agreement with Laura Massaro that will see the former World No.1 develop and nurture England’s younger generation of female players.

Massaro, 35, called time on her storied playing career in the summer and is regarded as the most successful female English player of the modern era with 23 titles to her name including one World title, two British Open crowns, three silver Commonwealth Games medals and four British National titles.

The Lancastrian also earned 116 England caps and was part of the England team who won the 2014 Women’s World Team Championships and the European Team Championships seven times.

Massaro will work closely with the national coaching team and impart her world-class knowledge, experience and professionalism through one-to-one mentoring and match-play with England’s young female players, as well as assisting at tournaments and squads.

Massaro said: “I’m really excited to be joining England Squash in a slightly different capacity than I did while competing on tour. I feel I have a lot of experiences and knowledge I can pass on and I’m looking forward to working with some great young potential.”

David Campion, National Coach at England Squash said: “Laura is a fantastic addition to our team at England Squash. She has a huge amount to offer in terms of what it takes to make that very difficult transition from a promising young player into world-class.

“Quite simply, she has done it herself, and it’s those attributes and insights that we would like her to share with the younger generation of players. It’s a perfect fit as we currently have a number of young female players who are embarking on a professional career.”
