National Table Tennis title excites Union Bank
Set For Beninoise Opposition In Cotonou
Players and officials of Union Bank Table Tennis Club have attributed their recent success at the National Open Table Tennis Championship in Lagos to the high moral and financial support from the Stallions’ management.
Union Bank coached by Samson Ajayi defied all odds to win the men’s singles crown, through Adeyinka Ahmed, who outclassed his Lagos State archrival, Azeez Jamiyu in the final.
“We lack words to express our gratitude to our management that inspired players and officials. Our welfare package is wonderful and the presence of quality training equipment has made Union Bank the best team in the country,” said Ajayi.
He commended the pair of Aregbesola Nimota and Bose Odusanyan, who fought gallantly to the semi finals of the Women’s doubles and the pair of Hassan Nurudeen and Alimat Ayinla that won silver medal in the National Open.
While congratulating Adeyinka Ahmed and Aregbesola for their invitation to the national team for Commonwealth Games Camping, Ajayi confirmed that they would play two friendly games in Cotonou, Benin Republic this weekend.
The Stallions played Tempo du Sun club yesterday and will face Benin Republic national team at Stade du L’amitie, Cotonou today on their international tour that served off on Thursday.
