Zac Alexander (squash) paired with Australian squash legend David Palmer OAM to win in the men’s doubles at his Commonwealth Games debut at Gold Coast 2018, but was unable to replicate the result in Birmingham, losing in the quarter-finals of both the men’s doubles with Ryan Cuskelly as well as mixed doubles with Rachael Grinham. Hailing from Brisbane’s bayside, Zac and younger brother Jake come from a family of squash players. Their father Bruce was Victoria’s junior champion at 18 and has coached for over 50 years. Zac was selected to appear at his first Commonwealth Games in 2014 and travelled to Glasgow but lost a last-minute appeal for a place on the team. Alexander won a silver medal at the World Doubles event in Darwin in 2016, before winning gold at the Malaysian Open Doubles Championship later the same year. Alexander reached a career-high world ranking of no. 36 in September 2012 and has won 26 Professional Squash Association titles during his career. In April 2021, he took on the role as the head professional at the Country Club of New Canaan in upstate New York. A keen golfer away from the squash court, Alexander cites golf legend Arnold Palmer as his sporting hero.
