Squash equipment worth several millions of cedis have been presented to pupils of the Fifth Garrison Basic Schools at Burma Camp in Accra over the week-end.

The equipment made up of three rackets, ten "T" shirts, five balls and cash were donated by Fugar and Company, legal practitioners, Mr Amando Rogero, former managing director of CFAO and two other anonymous members of the Burma camp squash club.

Mr Francis Johnson, coach of the association who made the presentation, said the items would be used to train the pupils free of charge as part of a pilot project to rejuvenate the sport countrywide.

He therefore called for more sponsors to support the association to popularise the sport and raise its standard to international level

Receiving the equipment, Brigadier A.B. Donkor, judge advocate general of the Ghana Armed forces thanked the association for extending the facility to Burma Camp, which he said was once the home of squash in the country.

"We want to assure you that we would give you maximum support to make squash a living sport in Burma Camp and country-wide," he said.

He asked all willing sponsors to contact the association on telephone numbers 024/710263 and 020/81300754.
