Hany Hamouda passed away on January 15th 2021

It was with great sadness that ESF received news of Hany's passing on January 15.

No matter how prepared you think you are for the death of a loved one, it still comes as a shock and it still hurts very deeply.

Yesterday ESF heard the news through many messages and calls that Hany Hamouda has lost his fight against COVID-19. This news was received as a huge shock and it hurts deeply. Hany was a good man, a great person and always in a good mood.

Hany was President of Africa from 2013. Well known by many players and coaches, and also by many delegates at the numerous WSF AGMs.

Hany was always ready for a good, friendly chat and that is how most of us will remember him. The squash community will never forget his contribution to Egyptian and African squash.

We lost a great man and we will miss you.

On behalf of the ESF Board and staff.

Hugo Hannes. President
