Aruna Quadri, Nigerian Table Tennis star, has expressed delight over the opportunity to participate in the European Table Tennis Union (ETTU) champions league.
Quadri is the first Nigerian to come this far. He has continued to put his country and the continent in the spotlight.
“I am really so happy that my dream of playing with the best in Europe is becoming a reality,” the sporting Lisbon club tennis player told ettu.org website.
“It is indeed a new challenge for me because my president and coach are not really happy that we might lose early in the tournament and ended up not making it to the ETTU Cup for the third-placed team in the group of four teams.
“They actually wanted us to play the ETTU Cup but our European ranking was good enough to qualify us for the Champions league and that was why we were included in the 16-team tournament.”
ETTU is the highest ranked and most important European table tennis tournament.
