The Roshan Khan National Squash Team Championship, which will take place at the PN RKJK Squash Facility here from March 1–5, will include up to 12 teams.

“Navy is the organiser of this event. The teams participating include Punjab, KP, Sindh, Balochistan, Army, Navy, SNGPL, and Wapda,” said Championship Secretary Rehmatullah during a press conference at the venue on Tuesday.

The last edition of this competition, which was conducted in 2017 and won by WAPDA, he continued, is held every two years. The Covid-19 pandemic prevented the organisation of the 2019 edition.

“The venue has four glass courts and one championship court. The four-side glass wall court will be ready by April,” said the championship secretary.

He added that going forward, the 600-seat, four-sided glass court would be the site of all events.

Jahangir Khan, the tournament’s chairman, criticised the Pakistan Air Force for not yet creating a squash squad at the time.

“This is quite shocking that PAF doesn’t have any squash team although they are the custodians of the game.

They should have been the first ones in this regard,” said Jahangir.

He continued by saying that the previous administration’s decision to suspend departmental sports teams had a detrimental effect on the nation’s overall sporting landscape.

“There is a need to run the game of squash by technical, professional people. People with strong vision are needed for the growth of squash in Pakistan,” said Jahangir.

He continued by saying that the Pakistan Squash Federation should be led by qualified individuals who can keep an eye on the sport’s growth.
