- Produce and publish world rankings;
- Increase exposure for the sport and its players;
- Encourage professionalism among its members;
- Raise the administrative standards at events;
- Increase the level of support and advice offered to promoters; and

The new women's squash game is governed now by the Women's Squash Association (WSA).
