The Petroleum Sports Promotion Board, the prime destination point for up and coming talented sportspersons in the country across disciplines, has now opened its door for squash.

A sports body which has catered to champions in sixteen disciplines from Olympic medallists P.V. Sindhu and Saina Nehwal apart from P. Kashyap in badminton to Sharath Kamal in table tennis and Rohan Bopanna in tennis and many more in hockey and others will now hopefully have some of the deserving squash players in its role, thanks to its decision to make squash the 17th sport on its calendar.

This is good news not only for squash players for they too will now look up to the benefits of jobs, scholarships and incentives but also the sport itself.

The positive turn of events came about after the discussions that PSPB Joint Secretary Mr K.L. Tejwani has had with Harish Prasad Rao, the SRFI Development Officer since September.

In all probability the inaugural PSPB squash championship will get underway later this year, possibly some time in December at Numaligarh Refinery Limited, Maligaon, Assam.
