Cameron earns his keep



NOTHING comes free in this world and Yamba's Cameron Pilley has found out how so.

Ranked at No.25 in the world of professional squash, Cameron was looking forward to a few weeks at home relaxing and training, but to earn his keep Cameron was asked to give some valuable coaching tips to the Friday afternoon juniors.

Cameron is no stranger to coaching juniors as he has done quite a lot if it overseas, fitting it in between tournaments in whatever country he is in at the time.

At Yamba Cameron showed the juniors lots of drills and routines they can do when practising on their own or with a partner.

He also showed the juniors a range of shots they could all have a go at as they improve.

Cameron then played a three game rally with each junior and it was good to see them running hard for every shot Cameron played, never giving up and trying really hard to get a point off him.

Cameron then answered lots of questions and posed for lots of photos with the juniors.

The juniors in turn showed lots of patience while waiting their turn.

At the end of the month Cameron heads off to Adelaide for the Australian Open then he is back home for a week before travelling to Malaysia for a training camp with Azlan Iskander, who has a world ranking of 12.

Following this is the Malaysian Open then off to England to prepare for the World Open in Egypt at the end of August.
