Table tennis improves

The revival of the table tennis national league, which started last month, has already shown improvements on the standard of the sport in the country, the Zimbabwe Table Tennis Union (ZTTU) President, John Muringani, said recently.

“This is a milestone achievement in the history of the sport and we are happy to have finally achieved it, after we failed last year. This will go a long way in the development of the sport,” said Muringani.

Last year, the league was supposed to start under the corporate banner, but failed to kick-off due to lack funds. “This year, we have decided to start the league, although we still don’t have a sponsor, but we used other resources to make it happen rather than wait for a sponsor.”

The league is being dominated by bankers, while teams in Mutare and Bulawayo are dominated by members of the police force.

The league has a total of 18 teams divided into two pools – A and B. Pool A has teams such as NMB, FBC, CBZ, Kingdom and pool B has RBZ, OK, POSB and Stanbic.

Muringani said they would use the league to select national team players. The league will compliment the vibrant schools league which is in place.
