The WSL World Squash Library has launched an initiative to record the impact of the corona virus on on squash.
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 community.
For this purpose the WSL has requested contributions from around the world from players (both recreational and professional), facility operators, federations; anybody involved with squash. The record will help corona virus effects to be remembered for generations to come.
Contributors can visit 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.
The initiative is being led by WSL founder Andrew Shelley. According to him, “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. Squash has not been exempt. The impact has taken a number of forms, and has been very wide indeed – and needs to be documented.”
World Squash Library was established last October by former World Squash Federation CEO Andrew Shelley as a free service to provide information and answer queries, and preserve books, handbooks, magazines, programmes, documents and images for future generations.
