Valuejet Para Table Tennis Open: Second Edition Set For December 19

According to Organizers of Valuejet Para Table Tennis Open Championship, the second edition of the tourney which holds this year,  is scheduled to commence on December 19 at the Molade Okoya-Thomas Hall of Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos State.

They disclosed that hundreds of athletes from around the federation, including Tokyo-bound Paralympians, Isau Ogunkunle; Commonwealth Games silver medalist, Faith Obazuaye; Sydney 2000 Paralympics gold medalists, Tajudeen Agunbiade and Olufemi Alabi are already in Lagos for the three-day championship.

The championship is being organised by the Sunday Odebode Foundation and sanctioned by the Nigeria Table Tennis Federation (NTTF).

The organizers say with some of the Paralympians already in camp, the tournament will serve as a testing ground for the athletes looking forward to representing the country in next year’s championships.

It also serves as a good hunting ground for players from outside Lagos, as it is the only para-table tennis event this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
