WSF Introduces SPIN Programme


The WSF SPIN Programme has now gone live.


Before dealing with the mechanics for you, first a reminder of the general details:

SPIN (Squash Player Identification Number) is the WSF player registration service that will operate for events taking place after 1st January 2014.

For players, from the start of next year all players who wish to play in all World Individual and Team Championships, Regional Championships and World Junior Circuit events at all age levels will need to be registered. They will then be provided with their SPIN, which stays with them for life.

For individual events where national federations enter their players they will do so using the SPIN of the players. Similarly, in those events where players enter themselves e.g. World Masters, they will do so using their SPIN.

For team events of all ages competing in World and Regional Championships member Nations will enter their teams into the event using the on-line system. Squad and Team submissions would also be made on-line.


To register any player, irrespective of age, you as their federation can do this on their behalf or you can ask them to do this themselves (especially Masters players) by completing the on-line registration form.

The current SPIN registration fee - paid on-line - is a once only lifetime fee of GBP£10.00 (not annual).  Nations will  automatically be notified of all player registrations from their country and have the opportunity to veto any at any time in case of issue.


- Half of all the fees paid by the players (or Member Nations on their behalf) will be split equally between the five Regional Federations to help fund development initiatives.
- Registered players would enter themselves only for the World Masters, as they currently do.
- Tournament Planner software is used to take entries for National Junior Open events, with players at Under-19 level able to claim World Junior Circuit ranking points.


Simply go to



Separately, all WSF member nations will receive their login so that they can view all registrations from their country, enter WSF Championships (you will be able to enter a team for the WSF Men’s World Junior Team Championship 2014 in Namibia almost immediately) and do so for forthcoming WSF individual events in due course.

 It has been very encouraging to know from earlier feedback that the SPIN programme has been so strongly welcomed as a step forward, and now we look forward to it coming on stream for entries and events in the coming months.
