As one of the leading squash nations in the world, Malaysia has been involved in hosting several major tournaments over the years. To date, Malaysia has hosted the WSF Men’s World Championship twice – in 1989 and 1997; and the WSF Women’s World Championship four times – 1996, 2004, 2013 and 2015. Besides that, Malaysia has also played host to several ASF Asian Individual Championships and ASF Asian Team Championships over the years. The ASF Asian Individual meet has been held in the country six times, with the 2011 edition being the last while the team meet has been hosted five times, dating back to 1986. At the junior level, Malaysia has also hosted the boys’ and girls’ WSF World Junior Championships as well as the ASF Asian Junior Championships two times each.

In terms of achievements, squash has always made the nation proud by never failing to return with a medal at major multi-sport events such as the Commonwealth and Asian Games since 1998. Won the Men’s team and individual titles at the 10th Asian Squash Championship in Hong Kong. Since its inception in 1981, besides Pakistan, Malaysia is the only nation to achieve this. A best finish of 2nd place at the WSF Women’s World Team Championships 2014.

Several other titles at the regional level. Arguably Malaysia can be considered the most successful nation in squash in Asia.
