Table tennis federation get equipment boost

The Cambodian Table Tennis Federation received a welcome boost to their facilities last week in the form of eight tables and 50 bats from the Asian Table Tennis Federation. Three private Chinese schools, Kong Hao, Tuon Fa and Hour Meng, are set to directly benefit from the donation as they receive a table and 10 bats each. In another fillip for the federation, visiting coach Stefan Scholten of Germany also presented gifts such as bats and T-shirts. “[Scholten] has shown great kindness and encouraged a close relationship between Cambodia and Germany,” said CTTF General Secretary Sun Sothearith on Friday. Scholten, who claims to have been involved with around 40 clubs in his homeland, promised to instruct German associations to help sponsor the sport in the Kingdom. TRANSLATED BY PANN RETHEA
