AMMAN — The Jordan Squash Federation will host the 24th Asian Junior and Youth Squash Championships to be held at Al Hassan International Squash Centre from August 15-19, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The event will attract 13 countries including Sri Lanka, India, Malaysia, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Hong Kong, Macaw, Japan, Qatar, Pakistan, South Korea and Jordan who will compete for medals in U-13, U-15, U-17 and U-19 age categories.

“This is a big event for Jordan and we are looking forward to welcoming some of the best young players from across Asia to Amman,” said Ramzi Tabbalat, president of the Jordan Squash Federation, which has hosted the tournament twice before in 2011 and 2013. Jordan has named a squad of 11 players, with the big name undoubtedly being Mohammad Serraj who won bronze in the U-19 World Championships last month in New Zealand.
