England Squash is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and complying with the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”).

This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be used by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

For the purpose of the Act the data controller is the England Squash Limited, National Squash Centre, Rowsley Street, Manchester M11 3FF.


We may use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • for maintaining records.
  • to respond to any enquiries you make or perform any services you have requested (such as providing you with the benefits of England Squash membership or providing you with information you have asked for) which may involve contacting you by post, e-mail or phone.
  • to allow us to administer the sports of squash and squash 57, for instance by organising tournaments and issuing coach licences.
  • to make parts of the website easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal information more than once.
  • to contact you about squash and squash 57 events, offers and opportunities available from England Squash and those of third parties carefully selected by us (where you have indicated you would like to hear about these)
  • to create anonymised statistical data about our membership and squash and squash 57 playing in Engand
  • for any other purposes as you may have consented to in submitting your personal data to us.
  • for the detection of fraud and market research purposes.

We may also transfer your personal information to our county associations, clubs, coaches, tournament organisers, agents and sub-contractors who will process it strictly on our behalf for the purposes set out above.

In order to provide some of our services to you we may transfer your personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area ("EEA"). This may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EEA or if any of our service providers are located in a country outside of the EEA. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the EEA. If we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take the appropriate steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.


Sometimes we will collect and process so-called sensitive personal data relating to you.

Ethnicity data

If collected from you, this will be used to identify and keep under review equality of opportunity within England Squash and (anonymously) for statistical and reporting purposes.

Disability data

If collected from you, this will be used to identify and keep under review equality of opportunity within England Squash and (anonymously) for statistical and reporting purposes.

Injuries data

This may be collected by us directly from you, your county or via your club e.g. through a tournament withdrawal form. It will be used to assist with tournament results and rankings information and (anonymously) for statistical and reporting purposes.


If you are an elite player who is required to participate in doping control procedures undertaken by a doping control officer appointed by UK Sport or England Squash, the results of such procedures may be used in results management, including associated disciplinary hearings, appeals and adjudications.

Criminal records data

We are registered with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to assist it in ensuring that those who take up appointments do not pose a risk to the children in our care. We may therefore process criminal records data disclosed by the DBS. This will be processed in accordance with the DBS’s Code of Practice for Registered Persons.


Details of your performance in events may be published on our website and available to the general public. This information may include your date of birth because this uniquely identifies you and also allows event organisers to ensure that you are eligible.
