Squash Director Merlyn Alarcos-Kriebisch thanked BSP for the continued assistance in the sport and also its development.
"The program aims at educating young minds about the sport of Tennis and Squash and pave way to find young talents to develop. We are grateful for the tremendous support from BSP," Ms Alarcos said.
