Squash Australia Strategic Plan

Squash Australia, along with its State and Territory Members, are pleased to release the new Squash Australia Strategic Plan: 2022-2026, as the sport embarks on a new era to reinvigorate the game.

With an aim to engage more people in squash, Squash Australia and the State & Territory Members embarked on a collaborative process over the past 12 months to define the framework that will drive business decisions and focus efforts over the next four years.

The plan sets out the sport’s longer-term aspirations aligned with the opportunities that the 10-year runway to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games will bring to sports in Australia.

There are four strategic pillars that focus on participation, performance, profile and facilities.

Getting more people playing, more often, is the cornerstone of the plan as Squash Australia looks to increase participation both on and off the court, from grassroots to the elite.

Identifying opportunities for new facilities, as well as improving existing centres will play a big role in achieving this. Identifying, integrating and using technology is also key, with digital innovation at the centre of the future squash experience.

The strategic plan also outlines how the organisation will continue to grow and develop an integrated pathway and high-performance environment, while increasing the sport’s profile for a strong and sustainable future.

The new Squash Australia logo was unveiled in 2021. It is simple, yet modern and distinctive. It’s built around the iconic outlines of the key pieces of equipment of the sport, such as the ball and the racket. The squash ball in the centre is surrounded by eight moving lines, each representing one of Australian states and territories and combining to make up an abstract shape of the country.
