Squash sensations to visit Truro School

The school is set to welcome Mohamed Elshorbagy and Marwan Elshorbagy for a masterclass on Friday 25 May

Truro School will welcome two world-renowned squash professionals for a masterclass on Friday 25 May.

The world number one, Mohamed Elshorbagy, and the number four, Marwan Elshorbagy, will be visiting the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre squash court.

Parents and students have been invited to watch the masterclass with the School’s squash players being given the opportunity to learn some skills.

Truro School’s squash Co-ordinator, Tim Smith, said, “Mohamed came to Truro School in 2016 and was very impressed with our facilities and is therefore very happy to return now.”

He continued: “This high profile event will undoubtedly inspire and educate our squash pupils. Having the World No1 and No4 helping them on the court is a huge incentive and thumbs up for our squash programme at Truro School.”

The Egyptian bothers are set to visit Cornwall having recently played against each other in the World Open Final.

Squash has rapidly grown as a popular sport at Truro School, with over 70 active players making use of the Sir Ben Ainslie Sport Centre facilities.

Marwan previously coached Truro School Sports Scholar, Jack Mahon. Jack has been quickly rising through the squash ranks and is now No3 for British Under 13s.
