In the latest step in its campaign to have Squash included in the programme for the 2020 Olympic Games, the World Squash Federation has launched a Bid Brochure.
The 48-page full colour publication underscores Squash as an innovative and growing sport with a global reach across all five continents.
“I am delighted that this brochure has captured the essence of our sport in a striking way,” said WSF President N Ramachandran. “It highlights our sport as highly dynamic, definitely athletic, global, growing and innovative too; and we are very happy to present details of the benefits our sport can bring to the Olympic Movement.”
CEO Andrew Shelley added: “Squash has the incomparable attribute of being able to be staged inside and outside, and showcase a host city in a compelling way. We can take our events to the public and show off the best of play and the best of presentation in innovative ways – a real positive for so many event hosts. The bid brochure hopefully captures this in a visually engaging style.”
The WSF Bid Brochure is being distributed to interested parties around the world via the WSF’s 135 national federation members.
