Jason Foster appointed as Referee Project Lead

England Squash is delighted to announce the appointment of Jason Foster as Referee Project Lead.

Jason has extensive experience within the sport, officiating at some of the world’s most prestigious tournaments, as well as playing and coaching to a high level.

Jason will support the organisation to expand their pool of referees; leading on recruiting and developing a diverse and dynamic team of talented referees for England Squash sanctioned competitions.

Following his recent appointment as a full-time Professional Referee, Jason will work alongside the World Squash Officiating (WSO) to support English referees at all levels to realise their refereeing potential through WSO referee courses.

Jason said:

“I’m delighted to be joining England Squash as a Referee Project Lead. I was introduced to the game 45 years ago by my Dad and have been inspired and encouraged by so many along the way.

“I have played squash and coached professionally, managed a squash club and represented my country, so becoming a referee feels very much like a natural progression.

“Exciting times lie ahead for our sport with the inclusion in the 2028 LA Olympics. I hope to attract, inspire and develop new and existing referees, imparting my knowledge and enthusiasm to provide world-class officiating at every level.”

Vickie Prow, Competitions Project Lead said:

“I’m delighted Jason is joining the England Squash refereeing team to forge and develop the relationship with the WSO and the referees.

"Jason has a wealth of knowledge to bring to the team, which will see growth of the refereeing team and will ensure our referees continue to offer world-class refereeing in England and across the squash community.”
