Until Sunday, squash will be under the spotlight near an ensemble of ancient Egyptian royal mortuary and sacred structures, such as the Great Sphinx, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and several other large pyramids and temples.
The Giza 2022 FISU World University Championship Squash takes place in a city that regularly organises squash championships. To perpetuate this tradition, 56 athletes from the Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Hong-Kong China, Hungary, Iraq, Japan, The Netherlands, Poland, Korea, South Africa, Spain and Switzerland have registered for the FISU event in New Giza.
“Egypt has a long squash history and has contributed greatly to the recognition of African squash and world squash,” said Prof. Dr. Mohammad Ayman Ashour, President of the Egyptian University Sports Federation.
“Squash is a highly popular sport at global level and particularly in universities because its mixture of fun and health and fitness benefits represent a lifestyle for students,” said Juan-Carlos Holgado, FISU Sports Director.
“With Egypt being a leading nation in squash, we are glad that the 2022 FISU World University Championship comes back in this country after the 2008 edition and we value the effort of the Egyptian University Sports Federation to attract a wide local audience and make the event a great experience for the competing student athletes,” he added.
