What we do
We are the national governing body for squash in England, and lead the development and delivery of the sport on both a national and local level.
We strive to help the sport grow and work collaboratively with our partners and stakeholders to provide engaging opportunities, from developing grassroots programmes and resources to producing world-class athletes.
More than 240,000 people in England play squash each week in more than 4,200 facilities with squash courts. We help more than 400 affiliated clubs to prosper and create thriving squash communities.
We provide and support competition opportunities at an international, national, area and county level for all ages and abilities from the British Junior Open to the World Squash Championships. Through our talent pathway, we identify and develop the country’s most talented squash players through their amateur careers, many of who go on to flourish on the world’s stage including the women’s World No.2 Laura Massaro and the men’s World No.4 Nick Matthew.
We’re proud to support a vast network of qualified coaches who we train and develop to deliver the sport on a local or national level. We are supported by an incalculable number of dedicated volunteers at club, county, regional and national level who we celebrate annually through our Polar Squash Workforce Awards.
Our values flow through everything that we do. They define who we are, what we stand for and set the expectations of those we work with and those who partner with us. They have been defined by our employees and are integral to our journey.
