MIRI: A total of 125 players are in the fray for the CMS-S1 squash circuit currently being held at the newly completed Pei Min Squash Academy.
Divided into three categories namely children, youths and adults, the three day event is being held here to scout for talents.
Speaking at the launching ceremony yesterday, political secretary to the Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Datuk Sebastian Ting said a good sportsman can only be produced with the athlete’s strong commitment.
“Good sportsmen are the result of strong commitment…if you put your heart into something, you will receive a good outcome,” said Ting while reminding that every athlete can be successful as long as they have the desire and strong commitment to do so.
Touching on the tournament, he commended the organiser for a job well done in putting the event together and creating an avenue for local young squash players to polish up their talent in the sport.
“This is a very good event and I wish to congratulate all the members of the organising committee for a job well done,” he said.
“This squash academy was completed in Feb and I can say that it is the first squash centre in Sarawak, and maybe also in Sabah, to have squash courts with good standard as well as facilities,” he added.
During the opening ceremony, Ting also presented a contribution cheque from the Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui to the Miri Squash Association (MSA) who was represented by its president, Jimmy Wee.
