31st WSF Annual General Meeting
News


WEDNESDAY
OCT 31, 2001

Delegates from 32 nations attended
the 31st World Squash Federation Annual General Meeting & Conference in
Australia in October, held in conjunction with the Melbourne International
Festival of Squash, the World Coaching Conference and the World Refereeing
Conference.

Among the motions passed were two
which strengthen the WSF Doping Code and make the implementation of WSF
Doping Policy at national level a condition of new and continued membership
of the Federation. It was also agreed that the WSF will use the Court
of Arbitration for Sport to settle all disputes.

WSF President Susie Simcock stated:
“We carry out exhaustive dope testing at all events

and from this evidence we know that
Squash is dope free. But we are not complacent about this and are determined
to wage war on drugs right down to national level.”

At the General Meeting there were
successful World Squash Championships bids from Qatar to host the Women’s
World Open in 2002, and for Netherlands to stage the event in 2004. Pakistan
secured the rights to host the Men’s World Team Championship, for the
second time, in 2005, while India will stage the World Junior Men’s Championship
in 2002, followed by Colombia in 2004 and Argentina in 2006.

The 2004 World Doubles Championships
will be held in the USA.

Squash legends Michelle Martin and
Jansher Khan were admitted to the WSF Hall of Fame. Michelle, sister of
Australian internationals Brett and Rodney Martin, amassed more than 50
WISPA World Tour titles during her career, including three world and six
British Open trophies – while Pakistan’s Jansher Khan recently announced
his retirement just one victory away from 100 PSA Tour titles, which include
six British Open trophies and a record eight World Open crowns.

Further presentations were made to
Philip van der Ven of the Netherlands, a former Vice-President of the
WSF and President of the European Squash Federation; and to Malaysia’s
Prasad Pillai, a past Secretary of the WSF and the Asian Squash Federation.
