By Sports reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 31 - The 3rd Nagen Hazarika, 7th RG Baruah All Assam Major Ranking TT Tournament and 64th Donic Sitaram Agarwala Inter District and State Table Tennis Championships will kick start at the Deshbhakta Tarun Ram Phookan Indoor Stadium in the RG Baruah Sports Complex here tomorrow.

The championship will be hosted by the Assam Table Tennis Association (ATTA) where around 450 paddlers from districts and institutions like Guwahati, Nagaon, Dibrugarh, Golaghat, Sivasagar, Nazira, Jorhat, Tezpur, Mangaldai, Dulialjan, Namrup, Oil India Limited, NF Railway will vie for titles in different categories.

The ATTA secretary Tridib Duvarah informed that all preparations are completed to host the nine-day championship which is counted as a table tennis carnival of the State.

It has been observed that the State TT body is trying to provide all possible facilities to the players of all categories by organising competitions and coaching camps. Players are also sent to US for higher training. But inspite of that, in recent years no Assam players have been able to make a mark in the national circuit, not to speak about international stage.

Assam boy Birdie Boro, who recently won a national championship, is an inmate of the Ajmeer based PSPB TT Academy. Birdie is the only State paddler who has been able to draw attention of the TT fans.
