championship which will take place from 1-6 December at White
Oaks Conference Resort & Spa in Niagara-on-the-Lake
in the Canadian province of Ontario.
The biennial Championship will feature the top female players on
the planet representing their nations. Teams from every
continent will participate and the Championship will serve as

The 2014 Championship logo is a pictogram of a maple leaf
comprised of 31 silhouettes of the leading female squash
professionals from around the world. These silhouettes are based
on the photography of Steve Cubbins of SquashSite and
include such international luminaries as Malaysia's world No1
Nicol David, England's new world champion Laura Massaro,
and Egyptian Raneem El Welily, all of whom are expected
to be participating.
Squash Canada Executive Director Danny Da Costa said:
"The Women's World Team Squash Championship logo symbolizes
national pride and illustrates female competitive excellence,
which is the essence of the World Team Championship."
Robert and Michael, of Pacey + Pacey Design of Vancouver, BC,

associations and clubs including NY Squash, PSA, Squash BC and
Squash Canada. Robert Pacey, an avid Canadian squash
player, is the founder of Squash Republic.
WSF Chief Executive Officer Andrew Shelley added:
"Championship logos are necessary, but can be very creative too

to raise the bar in many elements, and their event identity has
just provided another example of the vitality and innovation
that Squash Canada are bringing to the table."
