Hall of Fame Inductees

The Canadian Squash Hall of Fame was established in 2017 and is owned and operated by Squash Canada and is housed at a venue determined by the Squash Canada Board of Directors.  The Squash Canada awards program date back to 1983 with the introduction of the Distinguished Service Awards to recognize Canada’s greatest Builders, Coaches, Officials and Players. In 2010, these awards were redefined as the Wall of Fame to visually showcase the honoured recipients in a more prestigious fashion through a virtual Hall of Fame on the Squash Canada website.
 
Celebrating success is a hallmark of any successful organization.  A Hall of Fame not only celebrates success, but also acts as a living chronicle of the sport’s history.  As people change within organizations, its successes are not lost.  A Hall of Fame is a legacy for future generations of squash players to learn from the past and in shaping the sport of tomorrow.  Hence, the Canadian Squash Hall of Fame was founded to permanently preserve the recognition of the outstanding achievements of its athletes and the tremendous contributions of its coaches, officials and builders in a first-class visual environment. 
 
There are five categories of induction into the Canadian Squash Hall of Fame – Athlete, Coach, Official and Builder with the pinnacle award being the Platinum Presidents Award.  Each category recognizes major achievements, a lifetime contribution to the sport, a positive impact on the game of squash in Canada, a positive public image within the sport, and/or an enhancement of the sport within the Canada.
