The Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) has confirmed that squash will remain in the sports programme for the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, after the persistent lobbying and hard work of our President, Mr David Mui.
"When we knew that the OCA would discuss with the Indonesia Asian Games Organising Committee (INASGOC) to reduce the sports programme of the 18th Asian Games and squash was considered to be dropped, we immediately act accordingly to seek support and assistance from relevant OCA's officials and INASGOC. I insisted that with the successful development of squash in the region these years, our beloved sport has to be one of the competition sports in the Asian Games," said Mr. Mui.
Mr. Mui continued, "I would like to specially thank our Patron, Mr. N. Ramachandran, who has provided tremendous assistance and influence on the issue. My sincere appreciation would also go to the Persatuan Squash Indonesia and all those who have been working hard to strive for the inclusion of squash into the 2018 Asian Games."
There will be four events: Men’s and Women’s, Team and Individual, for the sport. Details of the announcement of the OCA, please refer to the OCA’s website.
