The World Squash Federation has awarded Malaysia the rights to host the World Junior Squash Championships in 2019.
The event, featuring the WSF Women’s World Junior Team Championship from 5th to 9th August and preceded by the Men’s & Women’s WSF World Junior Individual Championships from 30th July to 4th August, will take place at the Bukit Jalil National Squash Centre in Kuala Lumpur, home of the sport’s Commonwealth Games debut in 1998.
Malaysia has hosted several WSF world championships – 2019 marking the third time the Asian nation has staged the Women’s Junior Team event, following the 1993 edition in Kuala Lumpur and 2001 in Penang.
The biennial event was last staged in New Zealand in July 2017 where Egypt won the title for the sixth time in a row, and Malaysia recorded their best-ever finish as runners-up for the third time.
