Squash 2016 Launches Olympic Bid Website

March 9, 2009

The team behind Squash 2016 have launched a dedicated website to promote the bid and enable individuals to get behind the sport’s campaign for inclusion in the 2016 Olympic Games.

Alex Gough, Chief Executive of PSA and bid team member said: “Having a dedicated site where people can find all the information they need is a really important step in this process, and shows how committed we are to the bid. We have a lot of important things to shout about and the site is a great vehicle for that.”

Also in the technological field the World Squash Federation (WSF) has enjoyed a massive increase in social networking activity relating to squash. Facebook, for example, has over 500 groups dedicated to squash and the Squash 2016 bid.

Natalie Grainger, World No.4 and bid team member, fresh from her incredible defeat of Nicol David in the final of the CIMB KL Open on Saturday, said, “Social networking sites are so influential today, we’re delighted that so many people are using them to support us, and Facebook is a great way to get young people involved in a sport they clearly enjoy!”
