Dipika Pallikal to compete in the Senior National Championship after 5 Years!!

Dipika Pallikal will compete in the Senior National Championship, to be held in July, for the first time in five years after her stand was vindicated with the organisers deciding to have equal prize money for the premier domestic tournament. Dipika had boycotted the nationals demanding equal prize money after winning the title in 2011 when her India teammate Joshna Chinappa was injured.
“I look forward to playing the nationals again. My stand (for equal prize money) was not just about me but for the entire women’s squash fraternity. Nowadays, you have more and more international events offering equal prize money. So, it is good that the national federation (SRFI) too has decided to have equal prize money,” World No. 18 Dipika Pallikal.


Championship director Niraj Shirgaokar confirmed that the Nationals will have equal prize money in the men’s and women’s category with the winners getting Rs 1.25 lakh each. Confirming the development, Shirgaokar said, “Equal prize money is a contentious issue the world over but there are events which offer equal prize money. I welcome SRFI’s decision to have the same prize money for men and women.”
