BUON MA THUAT CITY (VNS) — More than 100 players will compete in the annual National Table Tennis Tournament in Buon Ma Thuot City.

The competitors, including senior players and young talents from 14 teams, will play in seven categories for singles, doubles and team titles from September 6 to 10.

The more than 30-year-old tournament has been organised by Nhan Dan (People) newspaper and is considered by most players as a platform to start their professional career, according to Le Quoc Khanh, head of the organisation board.

In its 2014 edition, the winners will receive a total bonus of VND200 million (US$9,500), double that of last year.— VNS
