Pakistan Squash

These web pages present the past,
present, and future of Pakistani Squash.

Squash and Pakistan are inextricably
linked. The Khan extended family, Hashim, Azam, Roshan, and Nazrullah, emerged
onto the world scene to bring squash to new levels of excellence at the same
moment that the nation of Pakistan came into being.

Because of the vision of several prominant
Pakistanis, such as Nur Khan of PIA, squash in Pakistan grew to be much more
than just one family, but to encompass an entire tradition of excellence and
creativity, such that one nation came to totally dominate the sport for many

I would like to thank several of my
good friends and acquaintances, Arif Sarfraz, Sharif and Gul Khan, and Sakhi
Khan for access to their photographs and information; and especially to Jahangir
Khan for the Khan family photographs.

Sincerely, Ron Beck, Squashtalk
