Squash meets KOed by CMCO

PETALING JAYA: The extension of the conditional movement control order (CMCO) until Dec 6 has quashed Squash Racquets Associa-tion of Malaysia’s (SRAM) hopes of holding tournaments before the year is over.

With the CMCO covering all states in the peninsula except for Perlis, Kelantan and Pahang, SRAM director Major (rtd) S. Maniam said they had no choice but to call off their two planned Professional Squash Association (PSA) Tour events from Nov 18-22 and Nov 25-28.

“We have to abide by the guidelines. We will write to the PSA to put the two planned events on hold until further notice, ” said Maniam.

“We planned to hold the tournaments in Penang because it was not under conditional MCO then. But it is different now. Perlis was also an option as there are facilities there but then we have the inter-state travel restrictions, so it’s just not feasible.

“It’s not a good situation for the players, ” he added.

The international squash calendar is also practically over with almost all tournaments called off.
