AGED but Avid Squash fans prove that Squash is International
Bob (78) from Los Angeles, California, USA flew westwards and Arthur (68) flew eastwards across the world and met in the Malaysian State of Penang to watch the Penang – CIMB 29th Women’s World Squash Championships and meet many of their squash idols and fellow supporters.
Bob has been involved in squash virtually all his life, including playing, coaching, refereeing and tournament organising, whereas Arthur has only recently (11 years ago) introduced himself to the game but is already heavily involved in travelling worldwide to watch tournaments and occasionally report on them for Squashsite, and it did not take long to involve themselves in long discussions about all aspects of squash and the people involved, and I am sure that will continue for the rest of the week.
“After my 27 hours door to door flight from L.A. to Penang, I am already finding the trip to be extremely worthwhile. The organisation of the event is proving to be absolutely wonderful, and am sure it will continue to be so all week.”
“A long flight to get here but that proved very worthwhile when on the first morning I met Bob, with whom I had been corresponding for several years, and to be able to sit and chat with him about the sport has been tremendous. The event itself has obviously been so well organised and everybody we meet is so so friendly, we have already been given VIP Invitations for the Arena.
“I am sure that the event will continue to amaze me, and I hope that the message of what a great sport squash is will be sent around the world.”
