KUALA LUMPUR: You may be a national player taking part in the SEA Games, but rules are still rules. Three national squash players found that out the hard way.

Sanjay Singh Chal, Mohd Addeen Idrakie and Ryan Pasqual were issued with summonses yesterday for parking their cars at the athletes’ residential area without accredited parking stickers at KL Sports City in Bukit Jalil.

The trio had parked their cars there as usual before checking into the Malaysian contingent hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

They were shocked to see the summonses on their way to their dorms to rest in between training sessions at the National Squash Centre.

They said they were not informed about the new parking arrangements.

“We were shocked to see the summonses,” said 23-year-old Sanjay.

Squash team manager Nik Razeen Daud hoped the police would cancel the summonses.

“I have asked the chef de mission’s team to appeal to the police to cancel the summonses,” he said.

“The area has long been the parking space for players and employees of the National Sports Council and National Sports Insti­tute.”

Former world No.5 squash player Low Wee Wern, who is recuperating from knee injuries, was also affected.

She said she was having a hard time getting into the NSI for her rehabilitation.

“I had issues getting in because I didn’t have a SEA Games accreditation,” said Wee Wern.
