Pakistan will not compete in the British Junior Open 2022 due to visa issues. British Consulate in Islamabad failed to issue visas to the contingent on time. The team’s withdrawal from the prestigious tournament has been confirmed by the Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF).
The Pakistani contingent was set to compete in the event, but it had to be withdrawn as the consulate failed to complete the necessary paperwork until July 19. PSF officials stated that it was a fantastic opportunity for the players to get ready for the World Juniors, which begins on August 10 in France while the federation has written the WSF a letter in response to this.
The officials also stated that the federation applied for the team’s online visa on June 23 while forensics were conducted on July 2.
