Indian Squash Professionals
Registration No: 25 of companies act, 1956 (No.1 of 1956)

About us: The only non-profit making sports NGO in India.
Indian Squash professionals (ISP) is a Non-Profit making Organization, formed in 1993, with the sole aim of promoting squash in India.  The idea of forming ISP was born in 1993 by its Founder Director, Mahendra Agarwal. It was in January 1993 that we first had first ever squash tournament (since 1947) only for the Professionals or 'markers' as they are known in India.

From January 1993 till date, we have organized 57 tournaments, 16 free coaching camps all over India, adopted 4 players, are publishing India's Leading squash magazine "PROSQUASH" which is being distributed to 3000 squash players & read by 15000 squash lovers throughout the country at no cost.  In October 2003, we imported for the 1st time in India a Squash Boaster Machine from England.

We also have our own website  which is the only active squash website in India, updated daily. ISP was instrumental in introducing Jahangir Khan's (legendary and former world no 1) coach Rahmat Khan to Indian Squash. He conducted two camps for ISP and also introduced Abdul Shaikh (squash coach from Canada).
