England has participated in every World Cup since 1981 . English squash players were previously part of the British team . From 1981 to the present day England reached at least the semi-finals of every tournament. Already in 1983 England was the first time in the final, was defeated there but just as in the second finals 1991 . The first title win came in 1995 in Cairo against Pakistan with Simon Parke , Del Harris , Chris Walker and Peter Marshall . Two years later , the team defended the title in the final against Canada . In addition to Parke, Harris and Walker this time Mark Chaloner was part of the squad. Third place followed three times before the third title win was achieved against Egypt in 2005 . The crew included James Willstrop , Lee Beachill , Peter Nicol and Nick Matthew . Once again the team, again with Nick Matthew, James Willstrop, Lee Beachill and Peter Barker , successfully defended their title . After finishing fourth in 2009 and losing a final in 2011 , England won their fifth world title at the 2013 tournament . Nick Matthew, James Willstrop, Daryl Selby and Adrian Grant played . In 2017 , the team made it to the final again, where they met Egypt again. Nick Matthew and James Willstrop lost their games, England became vice world champions. The squad also included Daryl Selby and Adrian Waller . Also in 2019 England reached the final against Egypt and finished the tournament in second place. Declan James and Adrian Waller lost to their opponents, so the premature defeat was certain. James Willstrop and Daryl Selby completed the squad.

England was also very successful at the European Championships , which have been held annually since 1973. Between 1973 and 2014 England failed to win the title only three times: in 1980 and 1983 the team lost to Sweden in the final, and in 1992 they finished third behind Scotland and Finland . With 40 European championship titles, England is by far the record winner in this competition.
