Since starting up again in July, Fiji Squash is hoping to gain more recognition during the Fiji Games which starts on September 7-10, 2017 at the Defence Club.
National team manager Dinesh Narayan said there will be eight districts represented at the Fiji Games which will be a good platform for them to gauge where their athletes are at.
"Preparations is really going well, the athletes are training and doing their best to prepare themselves well before the games start," Narayan said.
"We have teams from eight districts including Suva, Nadi, Lautoka, Savusavu, Levuka, Rewa, Nasinu and either Lami or Ba will be joining in as well.
"We only just started up and began having clinics in July because after the last Pacific Games everything sort of died down and players were just playing in their own clubs or individually.
"There will be a few upcoming tournaments like the Junior Championships next year and we will also be hosting a tournament during the Fiji Day celebrations so these are things we want to plan for and hope to take part in.
"So the Fiji Games will be a good platform for us to see where our athletes are at in terms of performance.
"We get to see whose got real talent and who needs to learn more and we can grade the players and acess their performance.
"So the Fiji Games is very important to us and we are really looking forward to it."
The Fiji Games is a multisport event hosted by FASANOC with funding support from the International Olympic Committee Olympic Solidarity Program and the Commonwealth Games Federation Development Grant.
