Since 1986 the World Squash Federation has been working with the International Olympic Committee towards the target of squash becoming an Olympic Sport.
The benefits to Squash of being on the programme are enormous: We would attract increased media coverage; make the sport accessible to a new generation of players; generate new development revenue; and bring more nations into the squash family as National Olympic Committees recognise the attributes of the sport and the opportunity for Olympic medals.
The World Squash Federation submitted its bid to the IOC for inclusion in the 2016 Olympic Games but the bid was unsuccessful, with squash losing out to golf and rugby sevens.
