I bet you didn't even know that there was a golden age of squash in Pakistan, did you?

I'm always astounded by the lengths people sometimes go to for the things they are passionate about. Case in point: Mahmud Jafri, a local businessman whose passion for the obscure sport, squash, was born in 1950’s Pakistan and is burning stronger than ever today Natick, Massachusetts. He joined us on Boston Public Radio to discuss his initiative to launch some of Pakistan's most promising young players into the highest ranks of the sport from right here in our backyard.
