Khan has been playing squash for last 35 years and his passion to grow this sport in USA and specially in Texas is unmatchable. He’s supporting Houston Squash for almost a decade and with his support Houston squash is growing rapidly.
After completing two Men’s and Women’s International Events, plus two huge invitational International Events in Pakistan, where I featured current male and female world no. 2 players, I am now back to my home base in Houston.
But, that hasn’t stopped me from continuing to support the sport I am so passionate about. We are only in March of 2021, and I have already organized and completed two events in Houston, the 6k Life Time City Center Challenger and the 10k Life Time City Center Open
It’s great news for US squash players, who have been struggling to get events and pro matches for the last 13 months because of Covid.
I am hoping that my events are the light at the end of the tunnel, giving much needed opportunity to the players to come back to a normal life where they can play, have fun and enjoy this lovely sport of SQUASH.
Squash is my passion and I want to grow this sport as much as I can. I have hosted 98 events in 9 years and am not stopping there. I have so many cool ideas that can help promote this beautiful sport in no time.
This is the first time I am organizing pro squash events in Dallas, San Antonio and Austin. Each city’s squash community is so excited to see the pros in their hometown and it will be a great opportunity for the young generations to come and see how they play and to motivate them to pick up this lovely sport.
I am so thankful to all of my sponsors and private donors because without their support, it is impossible to do anything. I am very fortunate that I have a lot of great people surrounding me who are ready to support any cause related to Squash.
How can I forget the incredible role of LIFE TIME FITNESS in all of these events, because without Life Time, it is impossible to host these events.
I am also very thankful to our Nationwide Squash Director Mr. Ajay Pant for his continuous support, Tomas Kobersky (S. GM Houston) Walter Gonzales (GM San Antonio), Mr. Cory Hey (GM Plano) and Mr. Brian McClure (GM Austin South) for allowing me to host these events in their clubs.
Huge shoutout to Core Path Laboratories, NH Specialists, WorldTechIT, Assurance Financial Mortgage, Texas Auto Save, Urology Austin (Mike R. Floyd, MD) and Resolve Tech Solutions for being my backbone of these amazing events!!!
