Former squash world champion Nicol David will be coming out of her retirement for "The Dream Remains Exhibition" in Kuala Lumpur this December.

After a successful career spanning 20 years, including being ranked world number one for a record total of 112 months, the 36-year-old hung up her racket earlier this year.

However, she is clearly not done with the squash scene yet, following an announcement of the event held with the support of the National Sports Council (MSN) and the Squash Rackets Association of Malaysia (SRAM).

Taking place at the Nicol David Arena, National Squash Complex Bukit Jalil on December 19 and 20, the squash event will see her take to the court against Malaysian junior players.

It will also feature Malaysia's current number one Low Wee Wern, world number eight Sarah-Jane Perry, up-and-coming player Tinne Gilis, and 2019 Pan American Games bronze medallist Hollie Naughton in a mini tournament, and a meet and greet session with David for 50 lucky Astro subscribers.

"After my retirement following my campaign 'The Dream Remains', I shared I still feel I have more dreams to accomplish looking to the future, this event is one of them.

"I wish to motivate our junior players and all squash enthusiasts to take on the sport that changed my life.

"As part of the experience for the spectators. I will also be making an appearance by playing on court with the junior players of Malaysia. It will be my first time playing here in Malaysia after my retirement.

"This initiative is to bring more squash interest back into Malaysia and a special moment for me to share with the crowd and junior players from all around our country," she said.

Entry to the event, which will also be shown live on Astro Arena and Astro GO, will be free for public.
