HÀ NỘI — The Nhân Dân newspaper 35th National Table Tennis Championship will be organised on May 15-21 in Hải Dương Province.
Some 140 athletes from 15 teams have registered to take part in the event, which covers seven categories for individuals and teams.
This year’s championship will see not only senior participants but also young talented players competing. According to head of the organising committee Nguyễn Huy Hiền, this will result in competitive matches and some upsets may also occur.
A draw will be held on Sunday. The games will begin one day later at the provincial gymnasium.
The tournament is also a chance for national team members to evaluate their abilities ahead of the Southeast Asian Games in August.
Organisers are also hopeful of finding new talent for the national team for future international events. — VNS
