    An Ode to Bootcamp

    By Rob ‘Baseball’ Jones

    There once was a squash coach named Phil, who was an expert in the art of the drill

    He set up a squash course called Bootcamp, with the goal of finding a squash champ

    It started early in the day, well before work was under way

    We ghosted, we sprinted, and with new shots we experimented

    Phil also made us run and run, until our legs were done

    He would keep up a fast pace, and he would measure our speed and make us race

    Although we all tried our best, after some time bootcamp was stopped as we all needed a rest

    A squash coach named Carmen resurrected the event, and we turned up again, on and on it went

    Because of the early start, there were only a few of us willing to take part

    Those of us who managed to wake up and join the fun, thoroughly enjoyed exercising before the rise of the sun

    And there were a number of players who made us smile, feeling pain all the while 

    Such as the masters phenom who had few hairs, but more than beers, loved running the stairs

    And the masters player who limped off after each session, and returned weekly for another lesson

    Of course we also had a few younger guys, who seemed like professionals in disguise

    And occasionally we would get a new face, but they would never return after they realized they were in the wrong place

    During the coronavirus we were thought we were safe, but Carmen took us outside to another place

    And for the first time it was held at night, under the stars and moonlight

    Oh yes bootcamp is real, there’s nobody like coaches Carmen and Phil

    We look forward to every week, and don’t mind losing sleep

    Please have a look at the accompanying pics, set your alarms and join in the mix!
