We asked Hassan  how the fundraising boost will help him 

“It’s absolutely massive, it’s a game changer,” he said. “The funding has helped me develop in all aspects, not just my squash. This year, the funding will go towards competing in satellite events around England, paying for the accommodation and travel costs. It will also go towards physio, nutrition and strength and conditioning, which is really helpful for developing me as an athlete.”
