In July 1983, a group of seven squash players set up the Squash Rackets Association with Gino Camilleri being the first chairman. He was followed by Tony Bezzina, Mario Giacchino, Bryan Sullivan and Liz Said, who is the current chairperson. In 2006 the name was changed to Malta Squash.
There are approximately 18 squash courts scattered around Malta & another 3 in Gozo. Malta Squash holds around 10 tournaments every year in various clubs. Tournaments are open to players with different categories for beginner/intermediate, advanced and junior players. The main event of the year is the Malta Squash International Open, which attracts a number of foreign players as well as local players of all standards.
Malta Squash also runs a National League which is again open to all levels of players, from relative beginners to top players. At the moment there are twelve divisions in the league.
The object of Malta Squash is to promote the game of squash and to organise activities and competitions with the primary aim to improve the standard of the game. It is based on purely voluntary service from squash loving individuals
