Setting an innovative step in the field of indoor sports, the biggest squash complex to be built in the Island so far was declared open by Chief of Defense Staff and Commander of the Air Force Air Chief Marshal Roshan Goonetileke in Ratmalana last evening (20 August).

The complex which is inclusive of six indoor squash courts is the brainchild of the Air Force Commander, an avid sportsman himself. Housed at the SLAF Base in Ratmalana, it is equipped with state of the art facilities, remarkable lighting and ample space to accommodate a large number of spectators.

The 7th Air Force Open Squash Championship 2010 which kicks-off tomorrow and will continue until 28 August will take place at these plush courts. Incidentally the team from Pakistan Air Force who had already flown into the island for the competition was present with their coach to practice ahead of tomorrow’s commencement of the Championship. The Indian Air force team is also scheduled to arrive in the island to participate.

Highlight of the launch came when the Air Force Commander challenged the Chairman of Air Force Squash, Air Vice Marshal Asoka Amunugama for a friendly game of squash, trying out a few strokes. The launch concluded with a full tour of the complex which was attended by several high ranking Air Force officials, SLAF squash players and top officials from the Sri Lanka Squash Federation.
