Organisers of the Adelaja Adeleke Adenuga Table Tennis championship have announced Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th December 2021 for the tournament.
Youths from Ijebu Igbo and other neighbouring towns and communities will converge at the Oru Court Hall, Oru, Ogun State for the two-day event.
The elimination matches will hold on the first day while the final matches will be played on the second day.
Dr. Adeleke, the financier and the brain behind the grassroots community sports championship, emphasized that watching and playing sports provide ways to escape the stress of our daily lives, and coming together as a community at the end of the year, is in the right direction to promote community peace, mutual understanding, and cultural indifferences.
‘’Hosting sporting events can boost tourism and revenue for a town or bigger community. Both amateur and professional, have tremendous economic, political and cultural influences on our society. Sporting events have played pivotal roles in communities around the world throughout history. Today, contests pushing physical limits are more popular than ever before. As interest in health and longevity continues to rise, and governments and businesses continue to see sporting events as sound investments, sports will play a vital role in society for the foreseeable future,’’ Dr. Adeleke said.
