THE Fiji Table Tennis Federation is accepting late entries for the Fiji Open Championship which will be played over the next two weekends at the Garden City in Raiwai.

Federation president Anthony Ho said they had received about 50 entries so far and were giving chance to those interested until tomorrow to submit their entries. Entry fee is $10.

The B and C grade competition in singles and doubles will be held this Saturday while the age-group and the A-grade competition will be held on March 22 and 23.

Ho said they were unable to secure a bigger venue thus hosting the event over two weekends.

"We normally have it at the Fiji Sports Council facility but since they are all booked, we have to hold this event over two weekends."

Ho said the entry was open for anyone interested in playing the sport.

"Please note that you are guaranteed more than six games of singles and two games of doubles if you are just a beginner or if you think you are on par with many of our non-A grade players then you will have more games as you progress to a knock out," he said.

There are separate events for males and females

"Anyone and everyone who plays table tennis at home or in the offices can come out to enjoy the social part of table tennis.

"This is one event and grade which the whole family can take part in."

Those interested can contact Ho on 9965649.
