The WSF Ambassador Programme visit to Malawi has inspired a squash facility to be included in a new OlympAfrica Sports Centre in the capital Lilongwe.

The WSF Ambassador Programme to Malawi, led by Malaysia's record 6-time women's world champion Nicol David (le) and Egypt's 2-times world junior champion Mohamed El Shorbagy (ri), is a World Squash Federation initiative designed to highlight the appeal of squash in countries where the sport is in its infancy.

"It is a great honour for us to host your visit. There are many countries in Africa, but the fact that you have chosen to come to Malawi is very special to us", Hon. Enoch K Chakufwa Chihana (mid), the Minister of Youth Development & Sports said.
