ISLAMABAD : Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) would be hosting Professional Squash Associationâ€™s (PSA) $5,000 tournament in Karachi next month.
Talking to APP, PSF Honorary Secretary, Wing Commander Tahir Sultan said PSA has allowed Pakistan to host a $5,000 event and this event would be held in Karachi in July.
â€œOnly national senior and some junior players would be participating in the $5,000 event. This event would prove valuable for our national players as it would improve their international ranking,â€ he said.
It may be mentioned here that PSA had cancelled all sanctioned and unsanctioned international events in Pakistan this year due to security concerns. But holding of this event would be a revival of international squash in the country.
â€œThis would prove as an important step towards return of international squash in the country,â€ Tahir said.
Responding to a question, Tahir said we are also in talks with PSA to hold six more international tournaments in the country this year.
