Mmegi Online :: BTTA releases latest player rankings








BTTA spokesperson, Tiro Motswasele told Mmegi Sport yesterday that the top players in the singles rankings will take part in the Top 16 National Championships in Gaborone at the beginning of December.

Motswasele explained that the rankings are from the points players accumulated during the Gaborone Open, Molepolole Open, Phikwe Open and Orapa Open.

"The rankings are going to assist us when it comes to the selection of the national team. The selection will be made in January. The players have to work hard to be up for selection," Motswasele said.

He explained that the players will have to play in the group stages where the top 10 - five men and five women will form the national team. The players will then proceed for table tennis drills where the final selection will be made by the coach.

Motswasele said that they are impressed by the rate at which table tennis is growing as show by the number of players joining the sport. He said that currently, there are nine BTTA affiliated clubs in the country.

Motswasele said they always hold successful tournaments that attract players from other countries such as Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa.

He pointed out that sponsorship has always been a challenge but the situation has improved as companies such as Debswana are bankrolling the Orapa Open. He said they are also in partnership with Oasis Motel.
