World Squash Day Promotes Squash 2020 Bid
World Squash Day, taking place Saturday October 20, will unite squash players all over the world to create the biggest squash match in history.
Two teams will play in one global event showcasing Squash's bid for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. The format has a 2020 theme. Clubs are invited to field two teams of 20 players, with team members playing against their opposite number in one game up to 20 points.
The scores from every club will count towards an overall global result between Team Squash and Team 2020.
World Squash Day organizers hope the total figure of competitors will run into tens of thousands, placing it as one of the biggest sports fixtures in history, as well as the biggest squash match ever.
Many leading professions have lent their support to the project, including World champion Nick Matthew. He said, "this is a great idea for squash players all over the world to back the Olympic bid. My own club, Hallamshire in Sheffield, has always been an enthusiastic supporter of World Squash Day and this looks like a fantastic idea to get huge numbers of people involved".Write or read comments about this article
