ABOUT three hundred participants are expected at the National Schools Table Tennis Championships that swings into action tomorrow at Aga Khan Hall in Old Kampala.
“It’s one of the biggest national events on our calendar and the turn up is quite enormous,” Emmanuel Matyestye, UTTA president said. “It’s from here that we can spot and nurture new talent.”
Thirty-four schools are expected to take part in the competition that will be held over three days. The tournament is sponsored by Aga Khan Foundation, Agrates Uganda Limited and Wavah Water.
Matyestye added that the number is expected to rise. “The figure is not a problem to us in fact we would want a bigger number”.
Mbale SS are the defending champions in the boys category, while the girls defending champions are Nabisunsa Girls.
