“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing Board for all the time and effort they have put in, which has set a solid foundation to grow the tour,” added the winner of three medals in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
“We will continue the WSA vision to Inspire; Empower; and Entertain: Inspire future female generations to embrace squash as a professional sport; Empower girls and women on and off the court; and Entertain the world.”
