The Squash Foundation was launched in 2017 by Squash Australia as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting the sport of Squash in Australia. The foundation was established to secure funds that will develop existing centres and create new squash facilities around the country, with Carrara Squash Centre being the first project.
The goal for Squash Foundation is to assist the growth and development of Squash by supporting the grass root players and elite professionals with the right support they need and providing investment opportunities into existing and new facilities.
The vision for Squash Foundation is to provide all states with facilities that will become ‘a hub’ for the sport. A home of Squash will create opportunities for children, young people and professionals to have access to world standard facilities across Australia.
The Squash Foundation will provide squash players in Australia from all cultural backgrounds and skill levels, with equal opportunities and the appropriate support in reaching their full potential on and off the court.
Donations Are Tax Deductible
Squash Foundation is run in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation allowing donors to make tax deductible donations. ASF’s deductible gift recipient (DGR) status means that donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. The Foundation will provide our donors with a tax receipt for all money contributed, so they can benefit and claim tax deductions for their support.

- Olympic ambition is the cornerstone of the World Squash Federation’s unified structure, which was created to expand squash’s international profile as a sport and grow it at all levels.
- Squash would be a great addition to the Olympic Games, however, the Olympics is essential for the sport of squash in Australia and we encourage everyone to do whatever they can to support the sports Olympic drive.
