A six day training camp staged in Nairobi from Monday 19th to Saturday 24th December, under the direction of Nigeria’s Segun Toriola, had an immediate effect; it motivated all who attended.

The Kenya Table Tennis Association has seen increased interest in this year’s National League competition.

Now retired from international competition but still very much involved domestically, lining up alongside Victor Ouko, Anthony Mathenge will be in action. He leads Kiambu; they will no doubt prove major challenger to the City Team, the defending champions.

Intense competition awaited, the division is completed by outfits from Strathmore, KenGen, Glory Outreach Assembly from Nyeri, JKUAT, Technical University, Kitale, Kenyatta University, Nakuru and Bunge.

Meanwhile, in the Women’s Division, in addition to Nakuru, Kenyatta University, KU and Kiambu, the City Team will also be represented; they will be led by Sandra Nyaga and Edith Theuri.

A part of the “Tucheze Tebo” initiative, meaning “Let’s Play Table Tennis”, promoted by the Kenya Table Tennis Association, the venues for the League are Makini School, Kenyatta University, Nyeri YMCA and Kitale’s St Monica Girls School.

One division for men, the same for women; for the 2017-2018 season it is planned to hold two divisions in each competition.
