Commonwealth Games Scotland (CGS) in conjunction with Scottish Squash has confirmed the specific selection standards required for nomination to Team Scotland for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

These are in addition to the criteria laid down in the General Selection Policy published by CGS in January 2020.

This means seven sports have now agreed the sport specific standards required for athletes to put themselves in the frame for competing at Birmingham 2022.

The selection window for squash will commence on 1 March 2021 and run until 10 April 2022 with athletes aiming for qualification in Men’s and Women’s Singles, Men’s and Women’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles events.

Athletes must achieve a top 25 place in the Professional Squash Association (PSA) world rankings to be considered for the Singles events, while qualification for Doubles pairings will be based on a top eight finish at the World Doubles Championships in 2021, results at other designated ‘Official Selection Events’ or on combined PSA world rankings of the two individual players.

Detailed selection standards for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in all sports published to date are available to download here.

The sport specific selection standards for all 19 sports will be published ahead of the selection window opening on 1 March 2021.
