New Strategic Plan 2022 – 2027


The print version of the Irish Squash Strategic Plan for 2022 – 2027 was launched in February at the National Senior Championships with newly elected CEO of Sport Ireland, Una May in attendance as well as Shane Califf, NGB Director of Sport Ireland. We are delighted to now launch our plan online so it is available to all involved in the game. (Link Here)

The plan is centred on the squash club rather than on the individual player or provincial association. We hope after a very difficult 2 years that squash players at all levels are back on court in their clubs.

You will see that we have an ambitious plan to develop our game over the next 5 years. This requires us to continue to evolve as a strong governing body that is professional and fit for purpose. As a volunteer organisation with a professional outlook, we will ask for the support of players and clubs all across the country to help us deliver our goals.

With this in mind, the board of Irish Squash has appointed a 3-person team who will oversee implementation of the plan:


The team comprises John Dineen who will lead the group, alongside Derek McGrath of Sport2Sport who was responsible for developing our plan and Christine Mooney, Honorary Treasurer in Irish Squash. John can be contacted at

The plan will be reviewed regularly by the Board of Irish Squash to assess progress: goals will be measured and reset annually as necessary. We invite you to engage with the plan and we welcome all feedback. As we progress with the implementation process, we intend to expand the number of members directly involved in various sub-groups aligned with the Strategic Plan pillars.

An immediate opportunity to liaise with the SDG will be next Thursday 21st April at the PSA Irish Open in Fitzwilliam 2.30pm to 6.30pm. We look forward to engaging with as many members as possible.

Please consider getting involved, if you would like to contribute.
