Leading the way: A file picture of Beng Hee ( front) in action against Eddie Charlton of England.
Aspiring squash players will have the opportunity to hone their skills when they attend the “Squash Clinic with Ong Beng Hee” organised by the Squash Racquet Association Selangor (SRAS) this Saturday.
The event at the Astaka Sports Complex, Petaling Jaya, from 9am to 4pm, marks the first time SRAS is collaborating with Malaysia’s most successful male squash player of all time.
Beng Hee started playing squash when he was eight — at the 17-court club his squash-enthusiast father built in Malaysia.
He went on to build his career in the international arena since he won the prestigious British Junior U14 Open title in England in 1994.
Ever since then, his career has taken a leap forward both in the national and international arena.
As part of his corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative, the home-grown Selangor player will be imparting his squash skills and knowledge to local squash players during the clinic.
The fun event is targeting 250 squash players, youngsters as young as pre-schoolers and members of the public.
The organisers intend to use the same platform to further promote squash within young and aspiring players and create greater awareness about the sport as a whole within Selangor. Parents and players are encouraged to attend the event.
