The Squash Pod (The Story)
The Squash Pod is the fantastic idea of Bevan Duff & Jamie McAnsh. Both Jamie & Bevan relished the chance to have some fun whilst also having a serious message about supporting and growing squash and racquetball at grassroots level. This is where The Squash Pod came in.
So who are these cheeky presenters? Well both are from South Africa and have now made Wales their home.
Jamie McAnsh is a real inspiration. On 7/1/14 Jamie woke up without the use of his legs. He was diagnosed with a rare and incurable illness called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) CRPS UK. This is a rare condition that leaves the sufferer in constant pain due to the brain sending the wrong messages. Jamie shares his story through Jamie Seenobounds as well as promote a #getbackup attitude with The Squash Pod.
Jamie McAnsh’s bravery and attitude lead him to being recognised with the “against all odds” award at the Charles Holland awards which was presented to him by Falklands Hero Simon Weston OBE. Jamie McAnsh has a fantastic outlook on life. He hopes to inspire others and to help grow squash and racquetball through The Squash Pod. Jamie is a keen player himself and competes against able bodied players in tournaments recently Welsh Masters supported by Squash Wales – Sboncen Cymruand also very recently in Squashland Ljubljana during the Slovenian masters, playing with the use of calipers.
Bevan Duff is a level 2 Squash Coach and loves the game. Bevan has been a club player for a number of years and fell in love with the game at an early age.
Like most squash players Bevan loves nothing more than introducing people to the game.
Bevan Duff & Jamie McAnsh would love nothing more than to help grow the sport and to have a “right good laugh” along the way! We hope that the squash community, Workd Squash Federation and other groups such as SquashSkills will help us to raise awareness of this great sport, so that we can help the game to flourish and to bring new blood into the game.
