“If England Squash wishes to concentrate on squash - which will clearly be to the detriment of Racketball - just say so, don't dress it up and 'spin it'.” The late Michael Keogh, Racketball enthusiast, in an email to Keir Worth CEO England Squash (ES).
The World Squash Federation (WSF) and ES have decided to try and rename Racketball, ‘Squash57’. I know that many of the members of my website, UK-Racketball.com, and players that play the UK-Racketball Series are confused by what the changes are designed to accomplish. From what I can make out from the press release on the WSF and ES websites the change is trying to achieve the following;
“We hope that increased synergy between squash and squash57 will broaden appeal and create a stronger playing community” Keir Worth.
The main issue with this is that as Andrew Shelley Chief Executive of WSF points out “current players will doubtlessly still call Squash 57 by its old name”. This immediately creates a problem when trying to achieve “synergy”, within the sport; with the national governing body calling it one thing and the players calling it something else.
