Mostafa Essam, Founder and Head Coach


Mostafa reached number 104 in the world as a pro squash player before completing his studies in Business Administration in 2006. He founded Smart Squash with the goal to provide the same high level training and coaching that he received as a top junior in Egypt.


He has been coaching in the USA for the past 13 years and during that time has had eight students to reach a #1 age-group ranking and over 35 students accepted to Ivy League or comparable institutions.


Mostafa has served as USA National junior coach since 2015.

Adam Walker, Head Coach


Adam is the Head Coach at the Eastern Athletic Club in Brooklyn Heights and is also a National Team Coach.

They don't just run you around like other coaches.  We worked on dynamic training and strategy. You could tell that Mostafa not only played squash a high level, but he knew how to help other players get there.
