Winning Edge Squad
Players who are considered to have potential to contribute to medal winning performances for Australia at Commonwealth Games and World Championship events in the short- and long-term are provided with additional support from Squash Australia as members of the Winning Edge Squad.
There are a number of competition standards across various age categories which are used to determine the potential a player has to be successful on the world stage. Athletes who achieve these standards are invited to receive support as part of the Winning Edge Squad.
Athletes may also be considered for Winning Edge support by achieving the Winning Edge Fitness standards.
