The month of January saw a couple of stops in Perak and a new initiative to conduct the Squash57 Roadshow for Clubs. Dunlop has kindly agreed to sponsor a box of balls to Clubs who are interested to host the roadshow. The first Club visited was New Club Taiping on 21st January. A good turn up by the regular squash players who have now decided to pick up Squash57 after being introduced to the game when they visited Penang Sports Club in December 2017. Many thanks to Mr. Tan Vooi Gin and Mr Yeoh Hoe Thiam (Captain) for making all the arrangements to host the roadshow. We look forward to New Club Taiping forming a team to participate in future inter-club Squash57 Invitational tournaments.
On the same day, after the New Club Taiping visit, made a stop at Ipoh, hosted by Perak Squash Association organized by Mr. Low Sean Hooi, President of Perak SA. A group of squash players showed up at the Thaveethin Kudaram Church squash courts as the state courts are under renovation for SUKMA. After the usual introduction to the rules, KK Chee sparred with a few players who were brave enough to try the game, including the Perak Pakistani coach. KK Chee presented the Dunlop rackets and balls to Mr. Low to continue promoting the game in Ipoh.
