Squash is currently represented at the Commonwealth Games, Pan-American Games and Asian Games. It has a Professional World Tour worth $6.5 million, a world championship with a prize purse of $1 million, national and continental individual and team championships involving over 150 countries each year, and a compelling TV product in PSASquashTV. Tournaments are staged in spectacular locations like Grand Central Station, Hong Kong Harbor and the pyramids at Giza, Egypt.
Although squash is officially recognized by the International Olympic Committee, to the consternation of the squash community, it has not yet been included in any single Olympic Games as a contested sport, although it has been shortlisted for inclusion several times.
In recent years, efforts have been stepped up to lobby for squash’s inclusion in the games.
