ISLAMABAD, July 11 (APP): Players of France and Hong Kong
reached here Tuesday to participate in two-day Pakistan v World-V
series scheduled to be held at Mushaf Complex from Wednesday.
Talking to APP, a Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) official
said the two players who had reached here include Lucas Serme
(France, World No. 44) and Leo Au (Hong Kong, World No. 33).
“However players of Egypt, USA and England would land here on
Wednesday,” he said.
He said in a bid to revive international squash events in the
country, PSF is organizing two back to back Squash Series in which
World’s top ranked players would be participating.
“Pakistan v World-V series would be held from July 12 to 13
while Pakistan v Egypt series would be held from July 15 to 16,” he
said.
He said PSF would bag multiple gains from these events.
“This would not only project soft and safe image of Pakistan
to the international world but would also provide optimum exposure
to junior players who are proceeding World Junior Individual
Championship at New Zealand later this July.
