After first picking up a squash racket at the age of 10 Zak progressed through the Guernsey squash system as a junior player, along the way he picked up various Island & Channel Island titles in various age categories, the latter being the U19 and U23 Island and Channel Island titles.
Throughout his junior years he represented the Island at various tournaments throughout the UK including a couple of European Grand Prix events. Not too long ago he started to play Racketball, this instantly became something that he thoroughly enjoyed and continued alongside his squash.
Zak took his Level 1 Coaching Certificate as a junior and has coached squash for many years helping out with juniors of all ages and abilities in group sessions. He also runs the Saturday morning racketball group session for both adults and juniors of all abilities.
