LAHORE : The first edition of the SNGPL National Jashn-e-Azadi Squash Championship will roll into action from August 10 at the Punjab Squash Complex under the auspices of the Punjab Squash Association.
According to the SNGPL Sports Cell Secretary, Ashraf Nadeem, the five-day premier squash activity is being organised on the special instructions of the MD SNGPL, Amjad Latif, for revival and development of the game.
“We will hold the event in a befitting manner to mark the Independence Day celebrations and to identify new squash talent,” he told.
He said that there was dire need to organise squash activities to attract the youth to this sport in which Pakistan once ruled at world level for quite a long time.
“With the downfall in the game, now we are struggling at international level and collective efforts are needed for the uplift of the game,” he asserted.
