Welcome to WikiProject Squash, a WikiProject covering the sport of Squash. The projects aim is to create and maintain Wikipedia's structure and information for Squash, through creation of categories, collaboration of need-to-improve articles, and recognition of individual articles. For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices. You may sign up for the project on the list of participants below.

As of August 2019, SquashInfo doesn't display date of birth of both former and current players due to the General Data Protection Regulation. Dear members, please be mindful of this and do not let down before attempting to create articles for the squash players. You may still access PSA World Tour] webpage to check the date of births of current players. Unfortunately, PSA isn't generating any information about former players. Thank you.

Currently 3 pages have been tagged with the {{WikiProject Squash}} template. Of these, 121 (5%) have not been assessed for quality and 503 (20%) have not been assessed for importance.
