The World Squash Federation has bid for inclusion into the 2012, 2016 and 2020 Olympic Games but were unsuccessful in all three attempts.
However, all attempts have provided great experience with lots of feedback and World Squash have taken on board much of the feedback and made vast improvements in the game, particularly in simplifying the rules and improving broadcasting.
In 2013, World Squash and it's member federations (including Squash New Zealand) ran an international Back the Bid campaign, with it's own website www.squash2020.com.
The videos produced for that campaign highlight why our great sport of squash should be in the Olympics...
