VIJAYAWADA: All the hard work and dedication by the State table tennis administrators has finally paid off as the Table Tennis Federation of India (TTFI) conferred the prestigious ‘best state association' award on Andhra Pradesh Table Tennis Association (APTTA) in the annual general meeting held at New Delhi recently.
The jury of the TTFI had a tough time declaring Andhra Pradesh as the best State in India for 2010 as both Tamil Nadu and Maharasthta were in the race. “The award is given in recognition of the performance of players in various national tournaments and also for staging tournaments successfully,” APTTA secretary S.M. Sultan told The Hindu on Tuesday.
AP girls won gold medals in the team championships of cadet, sub-junior and junior all-India inter-state championships held at Indore and Ahmedabad in 2010. In the individual segment, Hyderabad's Nania won the cadet gold and K. Spoorthy from Vijayawada added yet another one by clinching the coveted medal in the sub-junior segment along with doubles gold in the same segment. “The splendid performance by AP girls was the most-talked about in the table tennis circuit as the little girls of under-14 age group went on to beat their rivals in the age group of 18 years in the junior category,” said a beaming Mr. Sultan. The national federation also took in to consideration the role of the association in conducting major events in a smooth manner. “The jury also took into consideration APTTA's successful conduct of the world junior championship at Hyderabad in November 2010,” he added. He also thanked all the fellow administrators, players and parents for their support.
