2014 Women’s World Team Squash Championship tournament director Mark Sachvie, who has been the Club at White Oaks Racquets Director for the past 25 years, said that, “hosting the WSF Women’s World Team Squash Championship is a wonderful opportunity to profile Canada’s top female athletes and at the same time, act as a showcase for women’s squash”.

The women’s game has seen considerable growth over the past few years with over 70 professional tournaments on five continents on the women’s professional tour.

The Club at White Oaks, part of White Oaks Conference Resort & Spa is a 5 star / 4 diamond facility located in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The Niagara region has become an international travel destination, and is recognized as one of the world’s finest centres of viticulture. Situated in the heart of this region, White Oaks has garnered a reputation as being one of Canada’s premier sporting facilities and has hosted several high profile squash events including the Canadian Junior Open, Canadian Squash Championships as well as PSA & WISPA events.
