ISLAMABAD, OCT 17 /DNA/ – Pakistan Squash Federation has been putting tremendous efforts for revival of international squash in the country. In the same context, PSF in collaboration with Serena Hotels and Combaxx Sports, has arranged CAS-International Squash Championship for Men & Women at Mushaf Squash Complex, Islamabad.

It must be acknowledged that Pakistan Air Force under the patronage of Air Chief Marshal Zaheer Ahmed Babar Sidhu, has been extending tremendous support to Pakistan Squash Federation for the game’s promotion in the country and we are hopeful for bringing the glories back to the country, which we have enjoyed for many years in the past.
On the other hand – besides Govt support, with keen interest and support of corporate sector, especially Serena Hotels & Combaxx Sports the event is likely to live up to the expectations with their support along with PAF.

It is expected that the foreign players will enjoy the traditional hospitality of Pakistan during their stay in the federal capital of Islamabad. Moreover, this arrangement would surely help in raising he soft image of Pakistan over the world of squash.
