ABDUL JABBAR FAISAL ISLAMABAD (April 17, 2021):-Pakistan will host Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Conference of the World Squash Federation (WSF) this year 2021 in November at capital city Islamabad. The 5-day prestigious international event will be organized under the banner of Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) in the collaboration with Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Serena Hotels that will be commenced on November 24. According to a spokesman for PSF, WSF president, Zena Wooldridge in her message said, “Pakistan has a rich heritage in squash with a host of former World No 1s and World Champions hailing from the nation, so it makes sense to start our second half-century of WSF AGMs there.” Stating Squash Legend Jehangir Khan as WSF ambassador she added that, “COVID-19 pandemic meant that we couldn’t meet face-to-face at our most recent AGM last November, so I look forward to catching up with our National Federations in person this time around.” World Squash Federation’s decision came after vigorous efforts of Senior Vice President of Pakistan Squash Federation, Air Marshal Aamir Masood, who was pursuing the case for more than a year. Expressing his views at this occasion, Air Marshal Aamir Masood said, "I thank WSF Board of Directors especially, President Zena Wooldridge and Chief Executive Officer William Louis-Marie for their trust in Pakistan. Allocating this AGM to Pakistan is indeed considered a great recognition of our efforts as Pakistan has always contributed to squash and has a legacy of producing World Champions. I personally believe that this AGM will not only help the progression of squash both in Pakistan and in the region but also change the perception of participants about Pakistan." He also praised the extraordinary support of Aziz Bolani Chief Executive Officer, Serena Hotels for stepping forward and offering his absolute support for hosting this event in their arena which reflected his love for the country and the game of squash. PSF hopes that this event will help Pakistan in getting more international events and championships which will help the progression of squash to new heights.
