Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Nigeria Ta­ble Ten­nis Fed­er­a­tion (NTTF) yes­ter­day ap­pealed to cor­po­rate bod­ies and phi­lan­thropists to as­sist the fed­er­a­tion to pre­pare play­ers for the World Team Ta­ble Ten­nis Cham­pi­onships.

The event is to take place from April 28 to May 5 in Tokyo, Ja­pan.

The NTTF Tech­ni­cal Di­rec­tor, An­der­son Bankole, made the ap­peal in an in­ter­view in La­gos.

He said it was cru­cial for the play­ers to par­tic­i­pate in the cham­pi­onships be­cause it would sharpen their skills.

“We are ap­peal­ing to cor­po­rate bod­ies and wellmean­ing Nige­ri­ans to help in build­ing the young ath­letes. The cham­pi­onships are cru­cial as it will give us op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in other in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions with a for­mi­da­ble team. Our par­tic­i­pa­tion at the com­pe­ti­tion will en­able us get ideas on ath­letes from other coun­tries and will help us im­prove our tal­ents.”
