Table Tennis is an indoor game based on tennis, played with small bats and a ball bounced on a table divided by a net.

Table Tennis, also known as Ping-Pong and whiff-whaff is a sport in which two or four players hit a lightweight ball, also known as the ping-pong ball back and forth across a table using solid rackets. The game takes place on a hard table divided by a net.

In an interview on A1 Radio on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, the second Vice Chairman Of Ghana Table Tennis Association Kwaku Frimpong said his purpose in the Upper East Region is to encourage the newly elected regional executives to develop and unearth talents in the Region.

A table tennis board together with the ball and rackets were presented to the teachers of the Bolgatanga Technical Institute as part of contributions to the region to help develop table tennis.

Mr. Frimpong was distraught about the continuous loss of talents in the sport, as such, he urged the newly minted executives to develop talents across the region.

He said table tennis is a game of passion and discipline and also requires mental fortitude.

When asked about team Ghana’s performance in the just ended Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, Mr. Frimpong said the Ghana Table Tennis team failed to win a medal but the performance of the team was not bad citing that, a lack of resources and adequate preparation.

The Upper East Regional Chairman Of the Ghana Table Tennis Association, Ababila Genesis Ayinbila in his view said, table tennis a very demanding game that engages all 5 senses.

Mr. Ababila said a “Bolga Table Tennis club” is in the offing.

“There are already table tennis boards at Zuarungu Senior High School, Bolgatanga Senior High School, St John’s Junior High School, and now we have one at Bolgatanga Technical Institute, and we plan to mount one at Zamse Senior High Technical School, which will help develop the sport. We have the technical men that will be there to train those willing to learn,” Mr. Ababila said.
