NATICK, MA--(Marketwire -06/12/12)- Dover Squash and Fitness, home of Dover Squash Academy, is pleased to announce they will be hosting a fundraising event for the National Junior Squash Team of Pakistan on Sunday, June 24th at 6:00 p.m. in the Dover Squash & Fitness facility at 721 Worcester Road (Route 9) in Natick.
The aim of the fundraising event is to place four Pakistani squash players in the United States at the Dover Squash Academy for training and conditioning. Dover Squash Academy has recently partnered with the Pakistani Squash Federation to host the Junior Squash Team of Pakistan. The Pakistan Squash Federation will set competitive targets quarterly for each player training in the United States and their performance will be evaluated. This program is expected to polish players' skills and improve their International ranking. Since there is an absence of International Squash in Pakistan and lack of International Match Practice, the goal is to provide the four squash players these opportunities in the United States.
"Squash is an internationally celebrated sport and is particularly popular in Pakistan," states Mahmud Jafri, CEO, Dover Rug & Home. "Since there is a lack of International tournaments for these squash players, Dover Squash Academy's objective is to give them the opportunity to play and improve in the United States. The four players selected have impressive career highlights so far and we hope to see them achieve even more in the future."
The Squash fundraising event boasts an impressive host committee: Barry Hoffman - Consul General of Pakistan; Paul Mathieson - Dover Squash & Fitness resident squash pro; Dr. Feroz Mahmood, Dr. Ghulam M. Chaudhry, Mahmud Jafri, Hasan Jafri and Arshad Burki.
Event tickets are priced at $100 per person and can be purchased at www.doversquashandfitness.com. The event features a sit-down dinner, beverages and a silent auction.
