THE Fiji Table Tennis Association has amassed good support from the corporate bodies for the Suva Table Tennis Open which will be held at the Garden City Complex in Raiwai next weekend.

For the third year running, the two-day tournament which starts on November 15 will be sponsored by Zhong Da Company Limited.

The association has resorted to Garden City for the hosting of major events because of lack of suitable venues.

"We have been fortunate to have good generous people and companies around to provide us with a venue and with small amounts of sponsorships to carry out our activities in addition to the Fiji National Sports Commission who provides us with grants for overseas competitions," association president Anthony Ho said in a statement.

"We are hoping some of the larger corporates will support minor sports especially now that government has provided tax incentives to sponsor sports for small amounts of money.

"It's the minor sports that have the largest haul of medals at the Pacific and any multi sport events."
