The PSL Team allows students to play alongside some of the world leading squash players including Sarah-Jane Perry and Ali Farag. The team itself is conducted in collaboration with Kenilworth Squash club which means that players from Kenilworth can be intergrated into the Performance training group sessions. This allows Team Warwick Performance athletes to train with a variety of people and become more experienced players.
