NEWS BRIEF


Paris Raises Squash's Olympic Hopes

With Paris almost certain to be given the go-ahead in September to stage the 2024 Olympics, Squash Player reports that squash is hoping it might be put forward as a new Olympic sport by the host city.

As World Squash Federation president Jacques Fontaine is also a French National Olympic Committee member, Rod Gilmour looks at the chances of squash finally being welcomed on to the Olympic programme.

Mike Dale and James Zug analyse the two different forms of doubles - softball and hardball - which may be part of any squash Olympic bid.

Dale also reports on Egypt's complete domination of the World Junior Championships, while Richard Eaton interviews double former world junior champion Marwan ElShorbagy, now the world no.7.

There is a competition to win one of two Harrow Response rackets as used by ElShorbagy and a rules quiz, where the prize is a pair of Asics Gel-Beyond 5 shoes as worn by Laura Massaro when she won the British Open.

All the regular sections are there as well, including Drew's Diagnosis, Physio's Therapy, On Court, Off Court, Coaches' Corner, Practice Routines, Mastershot and History, while Roshan Khan is the latest addition to our Hall of Fame.
