Kudos to our young Sikh juniors for emerging as champions in the recent squash tournament 3rd Selangor Super Junior Circuit 2nd Leg 2018, held at the National Squash Centre Bukit Jalil on 17/8/2018 to 19/8/2018. This event is to provide exposure to Selangor players under the age groups of 9, 11 and 13.

It was the Boys Under – 13 finals that proved the most thrilling match with Hardev Singh and Jaydn Jhan Karpal Singh Deo rising to the 1st and 2nd position in their group match. Karmveer Singh Rajinder Singh came out 4th in the same category.
