Squash is "the world's healthiest sport"

This is the conclusion of Forbes Magazine which conducted a comprehensive technical study looking at a wide variety of sports against a number of measures including cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and calories burnt while participating.

We think also that because squash delivers physiological benefits to participants in a controlled environment in a relatively short time (most games last about 45 minutes) it is absolutely right for today's time-pressured society, particularly for young people.

Squash is a sport whose time has come

The inclusion of squash in the Olympic Programme remains the next logical step in the development of squash on a global level. Following years of growth and successful development of the professional Tours for men and women, and having successfully added value to all other major multi-sport Games, we would like to elevate competition further by adding a new competition to sit at the pinnacle of the sport: The Olympic Games. Critically, the sport is ready and prepared for this. It will not be an opportunity wasted.
