FIJI Table Tennis Association is targeting primary schools to promote the sport.

Table tennis, one of the minor sports in the country is hoping to attract the interest of more schools in the future.

Yesterday, at Suva Muslim College, the association recognised the achievement of one of its players who attends the school, Adarsh Chand.

The 13-year-old won the C grade of the recent Suva Open that was held earlier this year.

National rep Christopher Lal said Chand was a promising player.

"He is one of the upcoming players and is totally new to the system," he said.

"But he won the C grade and that shows his calibre so we're looking forward to more competition from him in the future.

"We're recognising his effort at the Suva Muslim College because he is representing the school and at the same time we want to promote the sport."

Lal said Suva Muslim was one of the first Suva schools to include the sport in its Physical Education curriculum.

"Our development officers will be going often to the school to teach interested students about the sport.

"Suva Muslim is one of the first Suva schools to include table tennis in P.E and as a minor sport, we appreciate that so much. We hope to have more schools in the future."
