Squash Centenary Tour

CC100 Tour Overview

In 2015, Brigade of Gurkhas celebrated 200th year service of British Crown. To celebrate it, a Brigade of Gurkhas Squash Team taken to Nepal in 2015 and later 2016. Commander BGN Col I St C Logan, President of Nepal Squash Racket Association, Mr Kishore Maharjan, and AIG Dorje Rai of Nepal Police were some of the notable personalities who witnessed the competitive matches between BG players and Nepali national team. This historic tour strengthened our special relationship further between the two countries. Those senior dignitaries were all in favour of continuing this event in the future. Why Royal Signals: QG SIGNALS and Royal Signals are like a family. QG SIGNALS is growing massively in number and such tour will only help strengthen the relationship between QG SIGNALS and Royal Signals ever more. A proposal has been made to the Army Squash Racket Association (ASRA) to take the Royal Signals Squash Team tour to Nepal 2020. The President of ASRA, Lt Gen T R Urch CBE and his committee have agreed with the proposal, citing such tours will not only improve the standard of Squash amongst our players but will help foster our relationships between countries. British Gurkhas Kathmandu (BGK) will assist for accommodation and possibly tpt. The tour date is 14 – 24 Mar 20 and there are only 8 players from Royal Signals Squash Team. Royal Signal Squash Team will play friendly match with Nepal National Squash Team A and B and take part in Nepal open Squash Championships.
