Columbia Squash Coaching Staff Welcomes Alister Walker

Alister Walker

NEW YORK - Columbia Squash Head Coach Jacques Swanepoel has announced that Alister Walker has joined the men and women’s squash staff as an assistant coach this season. Walker comes to Columbia with a wealth of knowledge from his experience playing professional squash since 2002.

"We are really excited to have Alister onboard," said Swanepoel. "It will be great to have another coach with some fresh ideas, different perspectives, and a ton of experience at practice every day. “Alister's reputation as a player will be very helpful in making waves with recruiting moving forward.”

Walker has captured 11 PSA World titles en route to his highest world ranking of 12. He also competed internationally representing both England and his birthplace of Botswana. In 2013, Walker made history by winning the country’s first gold medal in an international squash event, beating Zambian Kelvin Ndhlovu for the Men’s Individual All-Africa Title.

Walker’s coaching acumen began at his alma mater, Wycliffe College in the UK. He currently holds the England Squash level 3 coaching certificate. While attending Wycliffe he coached in the Wycliffe club junior program, which help develop young players and encourage participation.
