IUG 2017| Table Tennis: All Set for Smash and Spin!

Even a blink of an eye would miss the shots and flips when the paddlers play at a rapid game. Over 13 universities are going to gather around the gymnasium of University of Ruhuna on 16th  and 17th  of September,2017 to take part in the Inter University Championship. All the TT lovers are graciously invited to come to the university premises and revive their passion as the paddlers smash. University of Sri Jayawardanepura table tennis team notched up the overall victory at the SLUG 2016 and brought an immense pride to the USJP. After their mega win last year, J’pura Table tennis team is set to battle against other teams to claim their victory once again. All sport enthusiasts, It is about the time to get ready to see your favorite teams smash it!

Table tennis is played by either 2 or 4 players and the simplicity as a sport is its own uniqueness. Players hit the ping pong ball from the either sides of a hard table using the racket. A net is placed over the table which divides the table into two equal areas. In the world as it is valued there are over forty million table tennis players and incalculable millions playing recreationally, making it the sport with the highest number of participants. This is largely owing to its enormous popularity among university undergraduates.

Many talented and experienced table tennis players are planned to faceoff during the IUG-2017. “Who will qualify for the finals?” and “who will take the trophy?” is challenging to predict. Each year the players improve their dexterity and compete with progressed skill level in comparison with the previous year. Therefore, depending on the commitment and the team-working spirit the universities will be lined up on the 2017 IUG scoreboard.

We welcome everybody to come to the university premises on the weekend to cheer and roar as the players smash and flip and the spectators for the event will witness intense tussle in the IUG 2017.
