Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it is our pleasure and our privilege to present to you the Punj Lloyd Squash Masters 2010!!
Having made a grand beginning last year with the organization of the PSA Masters in Mumbai, this year, it is the intent of the Punj Lloyd Group to bring the greatest ever squash extravaganza to have been organized in this country, in the form of the ‘Punj Lloyd Squash Masters 2010’ to New Delhi.
