Huge turnout for Tech Mahindra SGSquash Novice event

Having two 64-man draws in a squash event on our shores is not something very common in recent years. While the men’s draw was filled to the brim, the women’s was also equally encouraging with 43 participants. That was the Tech Mahindra SGSquash Men’s and Women’s Novice Tournament held at the Kallang Squash Centre over the last week.

From Bughley courts to title sponsor – the story of Mark Wong of Dymon Asia

The first two events of 2021 were held with Dymon Asia logos etched on the front walls of courts 1 and 7 at the Kallang Squash Centre.

Victor Koh and Charlie Thomas clinch DYMON ASIA SGSquash Masters titles in contrasting fashion

Squash is definitely back in 2021 – for us at least!

After nearly a year without any competitive squash, Singapore Squash is set to make a comeback this year. While the courts have been opened to the public for a while now, organising and running of events have been challenging given the safety measures required.

2020 – The year in review

2020 was a year many would agree nothing much happened, yet went by so quickly. Singapore Squash came into the year 2020 with a bang. With a new committee on board, two large scale events were planned to take place – the Squash Ball in March to raise funds for an interim squash centre and an exhibition tournament that feature the world’s best players. Plans were well into the advanced stage, with the hotel ballroom already booked for the ball and the players already confirmed for the exhibition.
