World Squash Alter Event Bidding Process for Fair Global Share
By Community | February 14, 2011
The process by which World Championships and conferences are allocated by the World Squash Federation (WSF) has been radically altered in what the organisation claim is a new forward plan for the sport.
In order to ensure that all regions of the world can host their share of Squash related events, shop the WSF have scrapped the fact that until now, ampoule member nations wanting to host have simply applied for the opportunity.
The WSF has now introduced a new regime in which the five regions of the world have been allocated all the Federation’s events and conferences right through to the year 2020 in WSF chief executive Andrew Shelley claims is a “fairer spread, denture with more certainty – and better all round.”
In 2014, for example, Pan America will stage the Women’s World Team Championship; while Europe will take the WSF Development Conference and WSF Federations Conference; Africa will host the Men’s World Junior Individual & Team Championships (with the Women’s Junior Individual Championship alongside); Asia will have the World Doubles and WSF AGM; and Oceania the World Masters.
