I believe strongly in “Doing Something about the Change you want to See”, or nothing will change. If we want more girls to participate and benefit from sports then someone must drive and motivate them.
It is a delight to witness the birth of the Funke-treasure Table Tennis Championship (F3TC) for girls. And the Maiden edition is kicking off in my city – Ibadan, Oyo State. 🙌
For many great achievers or persons who stand out in their chosen field of profession someone believed in and mentored them. One woman who stands out in the world of Tennis is Serena Williams. Serena and her sister Venus were groomed by their father from age 3…Wow! Today they are world champions.
When you identify a child’s gift, nuture it. Catch them young and help chat a great future
So come September 18-21, 2018 the F3TC competition will be birthing the next generation of World champions in Table Tennis… You better believe it because I do!
