|PRESIDENT MAJ. GENERAL ABDUL AZIZ BANNAI
I am very pleased to learn that the Dubai Squash League has commenced and is currently being played all over Dubai. There are several hundred squash players all over the UAE and this league should give them a opportunity to display their skills. As in previous years, I am sure the competition will be tense and the players will enjoy themselves competing with each other. I am also pleased to learn that in this year's event, a junior boys and girls section has been included.
On behalf of the UAE Squash Association, I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to the current organizing committee for making all the arrangements to the highest standard. The committee has a big task in organizing this event and I am confident they will do a grand job.
I would also like to offer my thanks to the previous committee members including Andy Staines and Sherwan Kumar for their dedication and hard work in making the league a grand success.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the participants the very best in obtaining the highest laurels during the league. Victory and defeat are not important in any sport, what is essential is the participation and enjoyment in taking part in the event.
