The Ghana Table Tennis Team are leaving no stone unturned in their quest to win the 2023 West African Table Tennis Championship coming up at the Trust Sport Emporium in Accra.
The 24 players who were invited to camp to represent Ghana have been pruned to16, eight male and 8 female ping pong stars.
All of them are champions in their own rights and they will also depend on home support to win.
Already Ghana Navy player, Bernice Borquaye has indicated her readiness to climb the podium for a medal. She has invited her family and friends from Korle Gonno to come and watch her show.
Top seed Cylia Baah Danso of the Ghana Army will be at center stage together with Cynthia Kwabi of the Ghana Immigration.
Augustina Baidoo and Juanita Borteye are new rising stars who want to make names for themselves and their nation, while policewoman Beatrice Gyasi will use her experience and morale to inspire her colleagues.
In the absence of Derek Abrefa, who is in the UK, every eye will be on Felix Lartey, the spider, to lead the men.
