Overview

The Aspire Academy Squash program works closely with the Qatar Squash Federation in selecting and developing talented squash players.

The program is built around a passion for the sports and talent is developed throughout a curriculum that addresses the technical, tactical, physical, behavioral and emotional needs of one of the world’s most demanding racket sports.





Programs & Squads

The squash program focuses on developing student-athletes to represent the Qatar National Squash Team at international level including the GCC, Arab and Asian Championships. A key strategic objective of the program is developing student-athletes to compete at a professional level and support graduate athletes who show potential as senior international players.

Throughout the year our squash athletes are provided with many opportunities to compete locally and internationally. This tournament exposure is a fundamental building block for all the squash players as they are able to develop and learn new skills specific to tournament preparation, participation and personal assessment of performance.

Tournaments include:

  • Local Tournaments, Qatar
  • GCC Tournaments
  • Arab Tournaments
  • Asian Tournaments
  • International Competitions (World Championships)

As the program continues to develop, more and more highly creditable international achievements are being seen.
