WSF chief executive William Louis-Marie said: "The World Masters Squash Championships is a highly-anticipated tournament on the global squash calendar.

"While we are naturally disappointed that the challenges arising from the global COVID-19 pandemic have prevented us from holding the Championships on its intended date, we have worked hard to ensure that we still have an opportunity to welcome players from around the world to Wroclaw next summer.

"I would like to thank the Hasta La Vista Club for their help in ensuring that this top-class tournament can still go ahead, while I'd also like to thank all players involved for their patience and cooperation while we have sought to find alternative dates for the tournament."

Hasta La Vista Club owner Zenon Waniak added: "Squash is one of the most exciting sports in the world, full of positive emotions and energy, and creates opportunities to make new friends through playing on the court.
