Squash was introduced to the menu of sporting codes contested during the Commonwealth Games in 1998, since when New Zealand has developed a proud record of success. Medals are available for men's and women's singles and doubles, as well as mixed doubles. The next Commonwealth Games are to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2014.
The Commonwealth Games is a key event for New Zealand Squash Inc. Much of our Sport New Zealand funding is linked to results at key world events, while success on this global stage greatly increases the profile of the sport in New Zealand. A team for the 2014 Commonwealth Games will be named closer to the time.
