“I don’t think there is dearth of government funds for popularising squash in the country but it is necessary to ensure that the available fund reaches the deserving players. If that happens, I am sure the scenario will change,” Chinappa said.
Chinappa added that squash’s popularity would get a shot in the arm if it was included in the Olympics from 2020. “...if squash is included in Olympics, then the game would attract new talent and sponsors,” she said.
