England Squash is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted in the Governing Body of the Year category at the 2016 BT Sport Industry Awards.

England Squash are shortlisted for the coveted award along with five others including British Fencing, British Gymnastics, England Hockey, Premiership Rugby and The Football League.
Reacting to the news, Keir Worth, England Squash CEO, commented, “I am thrilled and proud that England Squash has been shortlisted for one of the most prestigious awards in British sport.

“This is fantastic recognition of the progress made over the last 12 months, and whilst there is much to be done, to be acknowledged for the progress to date is very encouraging for the whole squash community.”

Nick Keller, chairman, Sport Industry Group, said: “In a year when national governing bodies are reviewing their roles, not just in sport but in society, it’s fantastic to see such a diverse group of organisations that are making such an effort to take sport into our communities, reach higher levels of performance, and engage with the corporate world.”
