Good – Competitive – Clean Squash continued to thrive through out. As always the organisers thank the players. teams captains and supporters for making the Anniversary Edition a turely memorable one. 

What appeared simple from the side – lines was indeed finest quality of Squash Played and the credit must entirely go with all the 12 Teams that participated. The Great Indian Squash League plays an unique format ensuring the bar of competitiveness will get raised…. towards the next few days the organisers will announce names of teams who will move into the Senior Division while the Others continue to compete in the Premier Division.

Making sure that all our entrants got equal exposure we ensured an unusual break from tradition by playing all teams for semi-finals and continuing the same tradition and ensuring all teams play the finals as well.  Making sure that “That Participation was of greater importance than just winning” on the Great Indian Squash League everyone is a winner.
