ITTF supports table tennis development at IDPS Uhogua | The Guardian Nigeria News

As part of the events marking the celebration of International Table Tennis Day, residents of Uhogua IDP camp in Edo State received table tennis equipment donated to them by the Federation Table Tennis International (ITTF) on April 6. , 2022.

Table tennis equipment given includes canvas shoes, table tennis balls, table tennis bats and t-shirts.
The national coordinator of the CSED initiative, Edema Fuludu, presented the donated items to some of the selected male and female residents of the IDP camp, who previously had access to a hand-made table tennis board.

During this event, Fuludu officially handed over three new handcrafted table tennis boards which were donated by CSED Initiative to the camp management. Two of the new table tennis boards will be used by the female students/residents of the camp, while the boys will use the other to develop their table tennis skills.

Upon receiving the donated items, Pastor Evelyn Ekhator, on behalf of the leadership staff of Uhogua IDP Camp, commended the ITTF for extending the benefits of “Table Tennis United” to their rural part of Benin City.

Pastor Ekhator assured the ITTF and the CSED initiative that the donated table tennis equipment would be properly used by the children and youth at the camp. Recall that in 2018, CSED Initiative donated a table tennis board to camp residents, but it was damaged due to overuse.

Although CSED Initiative is an NGO partner of the NTTF (Nigeria Table Tennis Federation), lack of funds has prevented them from implementing their grassroots table tennis programme.

Now that they have been able to order durable handcrafted table tennis boards, CSED intends to launch its grassroots table tennis program in Edo and Delta States in 2023. A significant part part of CSED’s basic table tennis program is the training of physical education teachers, who will in turn pass on their knowledge to their students.
