The International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the global governing body of the Paralympic Movement, has confirmed the World Squash Federation as one of its Recognised International Federations.
The vision of the IPC is to enable Paralympic athletes to achieve sporting excellence and inspire and excite the world – an area in which WSF has paid increasing attention.
WSF President N Ramachandran commented: “I was delighted and grateful to hear that IPC have accorded us this status. Our Para-Squash Commission, under the Directorship of our German Federation’s President Wolfgang Bauriedel (pictured below), is already looking at ways in which we can encourage and enable anybody with an impairment to enjoy squash at all levels.
“This recognition for WSF will spur us on still further,” added Ramachandran.
