In a landmark development for sports psychology and squash coaching, SportMind.io, a leading sport psychology company, is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with the Nick Matthew Squash Academy, founded by three-time World Squash Champion Nick Matthew OBE. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in integrating advanced mental training tools with top-tier squash coaching.

Jesse Engelbrecht, creator of SportMind and former South African No.1 squash player, will serve as the psychological partner for the Nick Matthew Squash Academy. Through this partnership, players will have unprecedented access to SportMind’s comprehensive suite of mental training tools, including the mobile app, Training Syllabus, Squash Playbook and Squash Playbook AI, as well as personalised psychological lessons with Engelbrecht himself.

Engelbrecht expresses his enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, 

“This partnership signifies a monumental shift in how we approach mental training in squash. Having experienced the challenges of professional play without adequate mental support, I understand the crucial need for accessible psychological tools. With SportMind, we are providing a one-stop shop for players of all levels, offering both light touch points and deep dives into mental training. We are empowering players to reach their full potential on and off the court.”

Matthew comments, 

“Jesse has run some webinars for our professional players recently which have been incredibly well received. Having witnessed first hand Jesse’s enthusiasm and expertise I had no hesitation in furthering this partnership between us. Sports psychology is such an underrated tool in my opinion that often athletes only tap in to when something is going wrong rather than proactively looking to improve the many aspects of the mental game in the same way you might do in the physical sense. Jesse’s understanding of squash offers a unique insight & I’m incredibly excited about the improvements that can be made with our players from juniors all the way up to the senior pros.”

Nick Matthew’s academy, founded in 2015, is renowned for its comprehensive coaching, catering to juniors, club players, and professionals. As a player celebrated for his unparalleled athleticism, strength of character, and extraordinary achievements, Matthew’s coaching philosophy embodies his own relentless pursuit of excellence. The Nick Matthew Squash Academy is synonymous with maximising talent and unlocking potential, making this partnership with SportMind a natural and synergistic fit.

SportMind, accessible 24/7 via its mobile platform, offers a unique blend of daily insights, expert advice, guided meditations, and personalised training. Its approach to mental resilience and peak performance has garnered acclaim from users across various domains, including sports, business, and academia.

The primary objective of this collaboration is to establish a reliable psychological support system for players at the Nick Matthew Squash Academy, offering practical ways to cultivate mental resilience and training coaches with effective and proven mental strategies.
