Squash is a cornerstone of the Commonwealth Games programme where players use speed and agility, hitting a small rubber ball at speeds of up to 280km/h.

At the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Team England had both of the former world number one players in Nick Matthew and Laura Massaro. 

Team England placed third on the medal table with one gold, two silver and one bronze medal, including James Willstrop taking home the men's singles title. 

He represented Team England for the fourth and last time at Gold Coast 2018 after competing at Melbourne 2006, winning two gold medals at Delhi 2010 and a gold and silver at Glasgow 2014.
