Kuker mini table tennis to hold thrice yearly, says Soname
Following the success of the maiden edition of the Kuker Farm-sponsored Mini Cadet Table Tennis Championship, the organisers now plan to hold the competition three times yearly.
An excited sponsor of the competition, Kunle Soname said yesterday, “I am really impressed with the competitive spirit among the kids, which gives me the impetus to subsequently make it a three times a year competition. I urge the kids to avail themselves the opportunity offered by this competition to develop their God given talents.
“Above all, they must combine sports with academic excellence. You cannot function well in this changing world without sound education. Indeed, sports and education play complimentary roles in building future leaders.”
The competition was categorized into three age grades, including 7 to 9, 10 to 12 and 13 to15 for both the male and female players.
Alakoro Academy, Indian School Team, Ikorodu Local Government and Lagos Island teams participated in the two-day competition held at the Knock Up Hall of the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.
Teams from Mushin, Rowe Park Boys and New Era also took part in the competition at the end of which outstanding players got certificates, bats, tee-shirts and trophies.
