World Squash Library Set To Record Covid Impact
COVID-19's impact on world sport in general, and on squash specifically,
will be remembered for generations to come.
In a bid to record the wide range of effects produced by the pandemic on
the sport, the World Squash Library is asking for contributions from
around the world from which to create a unique record of the
unprecedented period - from players, both recreational and professional,
facility operators, federations; anybody involved with squash.
"The worldwide Covid-19 pandemic has affected us all - whether through
illness, tragic deaths in the community, financially, or simply how we
live our lives in general," said WSL founder Andrew Shelley.
"Squash has not been exempt. The impact has taken a number of forms, and
has been very wide indeed - and needs to be documented."
To capture these fresh impressions as an archive, World Squash Library
is developing a snapshot of the impact it had; the repercussions
thereafter; and views on what the future holds. This will be published
on the website, and available so that in future people can look back at
this time for the sport using information supplied by the squash
Contributors are invited to go to
www.squashlibrary.info/covid-19-squash-snapshot - and write about
personal and/or business experiences of how Covid-19 has impacted
squash, plus other insights including thoughts on how the sport might be
altered in the future
