The Punjab Squash Association (PSA) is set to launch the National Talent Hunt 555 to revitalize the game of squash in the country. The groundbreaking program will be dedicated to legendary squash player Jehangir Khan to honor his services to squash.
The Punjab Squash Association (PSA) recently announced a National Talent Hunt (NTH) 555 aimed at identifying and developing young squash players in the region.
The programme, which will be launched in the near future, is expected to produce 500 young players from Punjab in just 5 months and 1000 players in a year. The initial phase of NTH 555 will focus on Lahore Division where 100 players will be selected. The trials will be conducted in other areas of Punjab thereafter.
The PSA has also put together a schedule for the year, which includes competitions for boys U-11, U-13, U-16 and U-19, as well as a tournament for girls. The aim of these tournaments is to give young players an opportunity to showcase their talent and compete with their peers from other regions.
PSA also takes international events and leagues into account when creating the calendar to give players the chance to test their skills against international opponents.
One of the key points of NTH 555 is the inclusion of the top 3 players in the Punjab team and the scholarships that will be given to them. This will help the players to improve their skills and reach new heights in the sport.
NTH 555 will focus on school and college level players and the association hopes to discover new talent and contribute to the development of squash in the region.
PSA is working hard to revive the sport in Punjab and NTH 555 is just one of the many initiatives taken by the association to achieve this goal. With this initiative, PSA is sure to be able to achieve its goals and bring back the golden days of squash in the region.
