THE Fiji Table Tennis Association received cash boost for its business house league competition which will start next month.

The association yesterday received $2000 from 3SA Carpets to assist in the running of the event.

Association president Anthony Ho said they would accommodate 16 teams in the competition which starts on August 7.

"We will have 16 teams divided into two pools. These teams will play each other before the top two from each pool advances into the Cup semis and the next two in the plate semis. We are following the IRB 7s format for this competition."

Association secretary Christopher Lal said they were fortunate to receive a sponsor for this competition.

"The business house league is a great way to promote the sport in the business industry and help us build a better relationship with other businesses," Lal said.

"The sole purpose of this year's sponsor is to get enough mileage with the amount he has given and this will only be possible through your support. Minority sport in Fiji always struggle to get sponsors and keep the sport alive and the media plays a major role in keeping us alive."

Teams who are interested can contact Ho on 9965649 or anthonyhofiji@gmail.com. Entry fee is $100 per team.
