The Nigeria Table Tennis Federation (NTTF) said that it was impressed with the performance of Nigeria’s para tennis team at the just concluded 11th edition of the Al-Watani Championships held in Amman, Jordan.
Anderson Bankole, a board member of NTTF told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone in Ibadan that the players performed incredibly well.
NAN reports that Team Nigeria won seven medals comprised of one gold, four silver and two bronze.
“ I’m impressed by their performance and they indeed made the country proud. We will be going back to the drawing board to work on their shortcomings.
“There are still a lot work to be done on the players ahead of subsequent tournament’s. The aim is getting better after participation in any international competition,” he said.
Bankole who is also a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) said that the just concluded competition is part of Nigeria’s team preparations for the African Games and the Olympics.
“The tournament is part of our preparation for the two top competitions still coming up later. We used it to access their skills and fitness.
“Most of the players also played against players who are higher ranked than them and that’s a good morale booster, because it increases their confidence level.
“When they meet again there won’t be fear or intimidation,” said the DCP.
