We believe that success will inspire our players to do better in upcoming international squash events,” said Razi Nawab. He said the PSF was striving for the revival of squash in the country and it was taking every measure to regain lost glory.

He praised the performance of Punjab Squash Association (PSA) for the revival and development of squash by organising regular championships both at senior and junior levels. PSA chief Amjad Noon said it was very encouraging that out of four-member team, three are from Punjab which speaks volume of efforts of the PSA for putting it at the road of progress. “We have a become a role model body which is working hard for producing talented players besides serving as a pipeline to produce future players. Despite all the constraints, we are getting the cooperation of business houses to sponsor our players for their participation in the international events.” He said that day was not far when Pakistan would rule the squash world with its players dominating at international level.
