When it comes to Squash the Congo is one of the many emerging countries in which the sport is becoming popular and has the potential to become of Africa’s many talented nations in Squash.

Furthermore, Squash in Africa is becoming popular again thanks to the like of social media and other forms of digital communication.
With Freddy, his story into Squash it is unique and is one that will be talked a lot by many and serve as inspiration to young Squash players from the Congo.

Inspired by an Squash senior

It is thanks to my old man from the neighbourhood Bianco Kibuila, he encourages young Congolese to practice squash, that I made the discovery squash, because he is the Congo DRC champion of the federation, I saw him playing “This game” which, each time, captured my attention. Finally, I started to practice it in me.

In Congo the king of sports is football as the engines are also quite well involved and is very popular among the Congolese.
Many sports centres exist in Kinshasa capital of the country and in the cities, which encourage the practice of different sports activities and disciplines there is something for all tastes, from the most classic sport such as Swimming, Football, Tennis, and most importantly Squash.

Becoming a Squash player on merits

As a squash player, the day revolved around me only, in my country now it does not. I look for an opportunity to improve my squash technique and behind the trainings of my international squash dreams and find a sports partner to motivate me why not a squash club I get my body used to the discipline of physical exercise regular no matter what he give me. I like squash, despite my local hat, which makes me grow every daydream of playing or training and at the international level one day. I play squash.

In addition, little by little, I noticed that I started to find myself again despite the difficult conditions in our country. I know that people talk a lot about me; in good as in bad, what I want to do for Congolese squash is to enlarge it and raise the profile of the sport too.

Participants in several tournaments organized in my country Democratic Republic of the Congo local
