Iván was born in 1981 and started playing squash at the young age of 7 at his family’s sports and wellness centre: Nick Spa & Sports Club. He has been participating in national and international tournaments all his life, allowing him to improve his skill, and has now become one of the best athletes in the current landscape.
Two of the victories that he most fondly remembers are his first positions with the Spanish national team at the European Squash Championships 1998 and at the World Championships of 2000. He also ranked fifth at the Sub-19 Junior Word Championships and was a competition technician for the Catalan Squash Federation in 2012. Iván is a member of the Spanish national team and is the current squash champion of Catalonia (2015).
With his close and friendly manners – and his great sense of humour – Iván endeavours to help participants improve their squash and paddle technique day by day… and, most of all, he makes sure they enjoy every minute of it!
