The Squash Racquets Association of Malaysia express our deepest condolences to the family of Dr. Eddy Jacob.
Dr. Eddy Jacob, the former President of Singapore Squash Rackets Association and Asian Squash Federation, passed away at the Singapore General Hospital early yesterday morning.
Dr. Eddy’s lasting legacy for Squash was his contribution towards the rapid growth and rise of the sport in Singapore.
Dr. Eddy Jacob had a life long passion for Squash and was instrumental in putting Singapore squash on the world stage.
A true gentlemen and a sportsman, he created friendly relations among the Asian nations especially between Malaysia and Singapore during his tenure as Asian Squash Federation President.
He kept competition and rivalry within the courts and warm fellowship off it.
He will be dearly missed by the Squash Racquets Association of Malaysia especially the ‘old timers’.
