General Information about OSF

The Oceania Squash Federation (OSF) was formed in 1992 as a regional federation within the membership of the World Squash Federation (WSF) to cover the Oceania region. Other regional federations within WSF include Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.

 

The Oceania region extends from Australia in the west to Tahiti in the east; Guam in the north to Antarctica in the south. The region is represented by a wide range of different cultures and made up predominantly by islands of varying sizes surrounded by the majestic Pacific Ocean.

 

OSF member nations are diverse in both their size of administration and representation, ranging from Australia with a population of almost 24 million people and over 2,000 squash courts to Norfolk Island with 1,800 people and 2 squash courts.

 

Recent statistics reveal that there are 38,103 registered players and 326,880 nonregistered players who play on a regular basis in the Oceania Region.

 

The OSF currently has 9 full member associations, namely:

  • Squash Australia
  • Cook Islands Squash Rackets Association
  • Squash Fiji
  • Ligue Caledonienne De Squash
  • Squash New Zealand
  • Norfolk Island Squash
  • Papua New Guinea Squash Rackets Federation
  • Samoa Squash Rackets Association
  • Vanuatu Squash Association

 

The OSF also maintains contact with other countries in the region that have squash facilities or have an interest in the sport.

 

The Oceania Federation is governed by a constitution and its main objectives are to:

  • Coordinate activities across the region
  • Identify areas of opportunity and assistance for the sport
  • Encourage cooperation among member associations within the region
  • Facilitate the promotion and participation of the sport within the region
  • Work within the framework of the WSF to deal with issues affecting the region
  • Provide regional representative on the WSF and other organisations as required
  •  Maintain representation on organisations that promote and support activities associated with sport in the Oceania region; and
  • Maintain the rules and regulations for Oceania Squash Championship events, the Pacific Games and Mini Games squash competitions.

 

General Meetings of the OSF are held regularly and are open to representatives of all member countries.

 

The day-to-day administration of the Federation is the responsibility of the elected Officers, which include:

  • President
  • 2 x Vice Presidents
  • Executive Officer
  • All of the above positions are occupied on a voluntary basis.

 

The OSF maintains a relationship with the Sport Federations of Oceania (OSFO), the Oceania National Olympic Committee (ONOC) and the Pacific Games Council (PGC), and supports their objectives to advance the promotion and development of sport in Oceania.
