Mr. R.P.M.

Also, this particular sport is still not very popular in Sri Lanka. Therefore, not many brands would want to support considering the low level of publicity as against the cost. Edinborough is proud to partner with "Edinborough Open Doubles & Junior Squash Tournaments 2022".
“I am delighted to have Edinborough on board our journey as a partner to promote the sport in Sri Lanka, especially among the youth, and this is a long-term plan than a short-term one. Added Suren Kohombange, President Sri Lanka Squash.
