Mansi’s El Gouna Dream hits double figures

Promoter Amr Mansi reflects on the rise of his El Gouna Squash dream …

This year we are celebrating the 10th edition of El Gouna International squash open.

Twelve years ago we started with the aim to show the world our favourite sport, our national champions, and our beautiful country through one of its best destinations, El Gouna.

Venue for 2010 and 2012

I still remember every single detail of the first edition when it was just a dream.

Most of the people thought it will never happen, given that at the time only government entities and big companies were likely do these things.

The biggest challenge during the first edition was getting companies involved in a different sport, convincing key leaders to support Squash, and to trust in me, which was a turning point in my life.

Venue for 2014 to 2019

I’m so proud now that twelve years later squash has become a mainstream sport, all the tournaments are being televised on our Egyptian channels, sponsors are much more interested in sponsoring the game, our players are getting known by the public.

And how the El Gouna squash open has helped shape the Egyptian Squash dynasty by being consistent for the past years and bringing world class athletes to compete in front of our future generations.

I really want to thank all my friends and every single person who stood by me since the beginning, and all the partners who believed in me from day one and were part of building this legacy.

Ohh what a journey 😍😍   Looking forward to the future of this El Gouna Squash
