Simultaneously, the 13th leg of the PSA WSF Satellite Series Tournament will run from 8th to 10th November at the same venue, with an anticipated audience of over four thousand spectators for both tournaments.
The action-packed tournament unfolds at Negeri Sembilan’s state-of-the-art squash courts at the Dato’ Hj Mohd Said Sports Complex.
Both finals will be held on the new glass court within the state’s modern squash complex.
Wednesday’s event was launched by State Tourism Exco, YB Nicole Tan Lee Koon, at the Klana Resort, Seremban.
