The Centre for National Culture, Denu will be hosting the annual Table Tennis Championship organised by Hotel Vilcabamba and Micky Group Limited on Saturday, December 29, 2018.
The Championship which is open to all will have Cadet boys (Under 15), Junior boys (Under 21), Men (Under 40), Veterans, (plus 40) and female over 10 years.
The one day event which begins at 8:00am will see first 4 of each category take medals (except veterans, first 3), cash prizes, T-shirts, Certificates and possible trophy winners in each category.
The Championship which has been consistent for over 15 years will have a best of 3 for the preliminaries but best of 5 for the knockout stages. A category which will see more than 8 players will be grouped while that which will be 8 or less will play a round robin.
Coach David Senyo Ahiaba expressed his expectation of the Championship in an interview with Voltaonlinegh’s Davis Clottey (TalksenseSports).
“I am expecting that Volta will be the hub for Table Tennis. So, this will be used to unearth talents and also expose the region to other parts of Ghana. Since it is open, we even hope people from outside the country will come. We also expect a lot of people to participate.”
Vilcabamba Table Tennis Club (VTTC) will use the Championship which climaxes their year to specially honour the ladies who placed fourth at the 2018 National Table Tennis League after laurels won at the League (which ended in November) were presented to their Chairman, Thomas Kuenyefu.
VTTC, Volta’s only active Table Tennis club won the Most Improved player accolade and the Most Disciplined player accolade at the 2018 National Table Tennis League Awards on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
