Thread: Squash is dead in Singapore

  1. #1

    Default Squash is dead in Singapore

    While i'm happy for Malaysia who have produced their first Woman's World Champion in squash, i'm sad for Singapore who used to thrash the Malaysians regularly at squash until about 10 years ago when Malaysia overtook Singapore and is now one of the world's squash powerhouses. Singapore really needs to learn from Malaysia how to groom home-grown world champions...

    where do u usually play? my condo still has 2 squash courts, which is quite unusual these days. most of the condos have converted their squash courts into mini basketball courts or used for table tennis.
