He said a free hand is given to the Punjab Women Hockey Association (PWHA) to take necessary steps for the promotion of women players.

 

"We have asked PWHA to make a calendar of women activities including camps, tournaments etc so that the PHF can support them  in each and every step for the women game development," he said.

 

Punjab Women Hockey Association (PWHA) also lauded the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) for doing all-out efforts for  the promotion of women players in the country.
