Irish Squash has confirmed a new partnership that will see UPMC Sports Surgery Clinic supporting the Senior Men’s National Team.
The collaboration will span the 2023-2024 season and encompass two prestigious international tournaments – the 2023 WSF Men’s World Team Championships, taking place from December 11 to 17 in New Zealand, and the 2024 ESF Men’s European Team Championships, scheduled for May 1 to 4 in Switzerland.
UPMC Sports Surgery Clinic has provided expert care to athletes and individuals seeking specialised treatment and recovery solutions since it was founded in 2007.
The Senior Men’s National Team has been making significant strides, securing promotion to Division 1 by winning silver at the 2023 European Championships.
Comprising a talented, young roster, these players are committed to the sport and are determined to improve their world rankings in the upcoming seasons to compete against the world’s best. They are deeply committed to inspiring the next generation, sharing their experiences and knowledge through various clinics across Ireland.

“We are incredibly grateful for the support from UPMC Sports Surgery Clinic, which will help enable our team to compete at the World Championships in New Zealand,” said Irish Squash CEO Scott Graham.
“These athletes have shown immense dedication, both on and off the court, to advance their careers in squash, and we’re delighted they’ll have the opportunity to challenge themselves against the world’s top players. This group of players has a unique chance to lead the way and inspire the next generation of Irish Squash players.”
“With the recent news of squash’s inclusion in the LA 2028 Olympic Games, the support of sponsors and partners who share our passion for the sport is more important than ever. We rely on our funding partners and generous sponsors to help give Irish players the opportunity to fulfil their potential.”
