Registration Opens For UAE 2nd Table Tennis Open Championship For Women

The search is on again for the best female table tennis players in the UAE, with registration opening today for the UAE 2nd Table Tennis Open Championship for Women, one of the key events on UAE National Sports Day this year.

 

Organized by the Women’s Sport Committee of the UAE Table Tennis Association (UAETTA), in partnership with Ping Pong Dubai, the Dubai Sports Council and Mysports.ae, the aim of the Championship is to promote an active and healthy lifestyle for girls and women of all ages, to raise the profile of the sport, and to increase the number of women participating. In addition, the Championship will feature the Emirati Players Evaluation Program which targets players for National Team representation, and a Children’s Table Tennis Training Course to introduce the game to young players of all ages and nationalities. 

The Championship will be held at Al Wasl Sports Club on Friday 25 November, and is open to players competing in singles in the Under 12, 12-18 and 18+ age groups. Trophies will also be awarded to the Best Emirati Youth Player and the Best Player of the Championship. 

Majd AlBloushi, a former UAE champion, Board Member of UAETTA and Chairwoman of the UAETTA Women’s Sport Committee, Head of Championship Organizing Committee, said “On the occasion of National Sports Day we wanted to promote table tennis while being part of this national event. The aim of the UAE Table Tennis Championship for Women is to encourage women to participate, compete and unite in their passion for table tennis while enjoying the benefits of physical activity. 

“Table tennis is a sport for all which is incredibly popular globally, can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities, and brings positive fitness benefits for all participants. The hashtag of UAE National Sports Day is #UAE_UNITES_US, and that is our motivation in organizing the event.” 

Online registration, which will cost 100Dhs, is now open at www.uaetta.mysports.ae/. All players are encouraged to enter, and those who register online before the cutoff date of 20 November 2016 will receive a t-shirt and participation certificate. Players who do not register online can still register between 8am-8:30am on the day and will receive a participation certificate. 

There will also be a Fitness Zone and a Health Awareness Zone at the Championships to provide information and advice on adopting a healthy lifestyle.
