Australia will host the 2016 World International Doubles Squash Championships after winning the rights from the World Squash Federation.
The championships, featuring Men’s, Women’s and Mixed events, will take place at the Darwin Squash Centre from 15-19 August.
The hosts will defend both the Men’s and Mixed gold medals – and seek to reclaim the Women’s title lost to New Zealand in the previous championships.
The 2016 championships will provide ideal preparation for the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, as well as the 2019 Pan-American Games. Australia were also double Doubles gold medallists in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Scotland.
