GUWAHATI, July 19 � Sivasagar District Sports Association is gearing up for holding the All Assam Major State Ranking Table Tennis Championship.
The meet will be held at Sivasagar Indoor Stadium from July 27 to 29 under the guidance of Assam Table Tennis Association (ATTA).
Senior NIS coach of the State Rajdeep Bhuyan of Dibrugarh has been appointed as tournament director, informed ATTA secretary Tridib Duvarah. It is for the first time that in a State level TT meet a tournament director is appointed to look after every nook and corner of the meet.
