(The Philippine Star) - February 2, 2016 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines – The success of the Philippine team to the recent 2nd South East Asian Cup Squash Championship will go a long way in its bid for a historic first ever gold medal in next year’s staging of the Southeast Asian Games.

Robert Bachmann, president of the Squash Rackets Association of the Philippines (SRAP), said the one gold, one silver, and two bronze medals the Filipinos won in the Jan. 11-17 meet in Nay Phi Taw, Myanmar, is definitely a big boost to their campaign in the 2017 edition of the biennial meet to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Filipino squashers won three bronze medals when the sport returned to the SEA Games in Singapore last year. It was the most medals the country won in squash event since it was first played in the meet in 1991.
