Squash Resources & Links
The World Squash Federation (WSF) is the global authority for the game of squash. The WSF is responsible for the rules of the game, along with the promotion, growth and organisation of both the World Championships and the game as a whole.
The Professional Squash Association (PSA) and Women’s International Squash Players Association (WISPA) represent and promote the interests of male and female professional players respectively.
England Squash is responsible for the organisation and promotion of squash in England. The website contains everything you ever wanted to know about squash in England – details of recent results, coaching opportunities, news and an excellent database of local contacts throughout the country.
Squash Wales is the governing body of squash within Wales. You’ll find information about the game in Wales, links to local clubs, an up-to-date list of fixtures and downloadable newsletters on the website.
Scottish Squash is responsible for the development of squash in Scotland, and the organisation has an excellent website. Here you will find details of competitions, results, a history of the game in Scotland and more information on the national programme for the development of squash in Scotland.
The website of Irish Squash is not especially well developed, but it does include a useful links section for Irish Squash Clubs and contact details for board members. The online results section and tournament calendars are also up-to-date.
The European Squash Federation serves as the World Squash Federation (WSF) designated regional body for the continent.
SquashTalk is a popular, high-traffic news site, reportedly accessed by 850,000 squash players every month. It considers itself the definitive source for squash news today, squash information, and squash history and there certainly is a lot of information on the site. SquashTalk has a global focus and is therefore a good resource if you want to find out what is happening in the world of squash outside the UK. Squash Now is a similar site but with a simpler, pared down format.
Squash Player is the online version of the popular magazine and features lots of news stories and results, though the site itself is not brilliantly designed. The Squash Site is practically identical.
Results and Rankings
If you are looking for the PSA Tournament Calendar, rankings and details of all the past winners, look no further than the website of the Professional Squash Association, the body which organises and co-ordinates the Men’s World Squash Circuit.
For the latest news from the world of women’s squash and details of rankings and upcoming fixtures, see the WISPA website.
For details of doubles results and rankings, take a look at the site of the International Squash Doubles Association (ISDA) – an up-to-date website with a schedule for the ISDA professional tour, now the single largest squash tour in North America in prize money terms.
Tips & Training
Squash Magazine is a great site, with in-depth topical articles and commentaries as well as shorter news items. The sections entitled “tips from the pros” and “training room” are excellent resources if you are looking to improve your game and motivate yourself in training, with diagrams and instructions on how to master particular techniques.
