10-time British Open Champion, 6-time World Champion & World Squash Federation (WSF) Emeritus President Jahangir Khan will act as ambassador for the 2021 WSF Conference & Annual General Meeting which will be held in Islamabad, Pakistan at the Hotel Serena between the 24th to 29th November which will feature high-level speakers from across the sporting world.
“Pakistan has a rich heritage in squash with a host of former World No.1s and World Champions hailing from the nation, so it makes sense to start our second half-century of WSF AGMs there,” said WSF President Zena Wooldridge.
“I’m delighted that our Emeritus President, Jahangir Khan, will be the natural ambassador for our AGM. As one of the most successful squash athletes of all time, Jahangir is synonymous with the sport and I look forward to working with him closely during our visit in November.
“I also look forward to welcoming delegates from our National Federations from around the globe. The ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic meant that we couldn’t meet face-to-face at our most recent AGM last November, so I look forward to catching up with our National Federations in person this time around.”
Having participated in WSF meetings in different locations during my tenure with WSF, it is indeed a great pleasure and honour to host the WSF in my home country and to be its ambassador.
“I welcome the National Federations from all over the world wholeheartedly to share with them Pakistan’s inherent beauty with spectacular terrain, its historical treasures, diverse cultures, squash legacy and, most of all, the warmth of its people. The hospitality of Pakistanis is unrivalled and I’m certain delegates shall take back many fond memories with them.
“I am grateful to WSF President Zena Wooldridge for this recognition and honour. I am also thankful to member nations for embracing this decision where we shall certainly have many meaningful and useful deliberations during this conference and AGM.”
