Wales have selected a seven-member squash squad for Team Wales ahead of Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Ten-times Welsh national champion, Dave Evans and current Welsh number one ranked player, Peter Creed, are both included

Evans has represented Wales at three previous Commonwealth Games

"I'm delighted and honoured to represent Wales at my fourth Games," said Evans.

"I am hoping to go at least a round further than I have done at previous games, where I've lost in three quarter finals," said Evans.

"The team has prepared very well for these Games and with lady luck on our side I do not see any reason why our athletes can't come back with medals."

The team will compete across four different events: ladies doubles, men's doubles, mixed doubles and singles.

Chris Jenkins, chief executive of the Commonwealth Games Council for Wales, said: "It's fantastic to see squash back in the Team Wales line-up for the Commonwealth Games.

"The squad's selection is testament to the hard-work and results that the players have achieved over the last year or so."
