Table Tennis players train hard for the Winter Invitational Table Tennis Tournament 2022.

The Winter Invitational Table Tennis Tournament 2022 organized by the Myanmar Table Tennis Federation and supported by Royal D was held yesterday morning at the U Wizara Road National Swimming Pool of Myanmar Table Tennis Federation in Dagon Township, Yangon Region and over 200 athletes participated in the tourney.
The competition consists of 45 teams with five players each, male and female. The first level is divided into 15 groups, and each group competes in a round-robin of three teams. Two teams will play in the first-round knockout format in the group.
“The main reason we hold this event is that the competitions are a little far away. And it’s also the longing that all the players want, we also want to hold the competition continuously, of course. In this year’s SEA Games, our table tennis is not at the priority level,” said Myanmar Table Tennis Federation President U Kyaw Kyaw. “This year’s SEA Games priority level is to select only sports that can win gold and compete in only 22 out of 48 sports. Anyway, we have a youth national team. There is also a new generation of athletes.
“That is why we have to hold this competition. We have made it possible for all young people and adults, Myanmar national team members and former national team members to compete in the competition”, he added.
The Winter Invitational Table Tennis Tournament was held to make people aware of the sport of table tennis for competing athletes to gain friendships with each other and have a good competition experience.
First, second, third and consolation prizes will be awarded in the tourney. The first prize has set as K1 million while the second is K500,000, the third is K300,000, and the consolation prizes at K200,000 respectively.
The competition will be held for three days until 28 November. — Bala Soe/GNLM
