Successful steps have been implemented, according to Mr. William Berekorang Asare, Ghana’s qualified competition manager and course coordinator.

“Everything has been set up as planned; the ITTF course instructor has shown up, and the location, along with additional study materials, is ready. We watch out for the participants’ enjoyment as they pick up new knowledge and concepts. He stated.

Under the present administration, this is the second edition; the first, held last year, was a success with all of the coaches receiving recognition for their achievements. They behaved themselves admirably, and the instructor was pleased with their contributions and performances. Therefore, this year, we want to focus on a higher specialization. He continued.

The coordinator, Mr. William Berekorang Asare, also said that foreign participants have expressed interest in the training and are anticipated to attend.

But he pointed out that “the coaching course is from January 19–23, 2024, and our athletes will have a training program from January 24–29, 2024, in preparation for the 13th African Games.” Mohammed Ameen Mohammed Atoum, an expert in table tennis for the International Table Tennis Federation, will oversee the program.
