Word Squash Federation backs India on security at Jr C'ships
The World Squash Federation (WSF) today expressed full faith in the security arrangements for the ongoing World Junior Championship here after a Swiss player pulled out citing safety concerns.
"Of course the views and choice of every parent must be fully respected. However, there are over 250 players and officials from 28 countries, including a full squad from Switzerland,"Andrew Shelley, WSF Chief Executive, said in a statement.
"Like the WSF, they all have complete confidence with the security arrangements made by Tamil Nadu Squash Rackets Association at the Championship Hotel and playing venues to ensure the safety of the players at this event," Shelley added.
Chennai is the unofficial squash hub of the country and is the base of the national federation. The city has played host to several national and international tournaments in the past without any glitch or security issues.
