Pak play­ers to put up a good show in Int’l Squash C’ship: Qa­mar

Pakistan Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

IS­LAM­ABAD —For­mer Squash Leg­end Qa­mar Za­man be­lieves Pak­istani play­ers will put up a good show in the Chief of Air Staff (CAS) In­ter­na­tional Squash Championship sched­uled to be held here in Novem­ber.

Talk­ing to APP, he said Pak­istan has ruled in the world of squash for 37 years but now it is very dis­ap­point­ing to see that none of our play­ers qual­ify into the fi­nals. Qa­mar said he has been given the task to train the play­ers for the In­ter­na­tional Squash Championship. “I hope this time the na­tional play­ers will qual­ify for the fi­nals and win the ti­tle,” he said.

He said Air Chief Mar­shal So­hail Aman, Pres­i­dent, Pak­istan Squash Fed­er­a­tion (PSF), is do­ing all-out ef­forts in en­cour­ag­ing and up­lift­ing the game.

He said be­cause of the Pro­fes­sional Squash As­so­ci­a­tion (PSA) events held in Pak­istan, for­eign play­ers are com­ing here which is very good sign for the coun­try.

Re­spond­ing to a ques­tion, he said it will take us one more year to pro­duce such play­ers who can make the coun­try proud by win­ning at in­ter­na­tional level.
