Asian Squash Coach of the Year Award

National squash coach Cyrus Poncha has been chosen to receive the 2016 Asian Squash Federation ‘Coach of the Year’ award.

Poncha is the only Indian in this year’s list of awardees.

The ASF has lauded Poncha’s role in the good results delivered by the country’s senior and junior players last year.

The highlights include the world doubles tourney in Australia where Saurav Ghosal and Dipika Pallikal Karthik won a silver in the mixed doubles. Joshna Chinappa had combined to win bronze medals with Dipika and Harinder Pal Sandhu in the women’s doubles and mixed doubles events.
