Nigerian Tennis number one player, Aruna Quadri has been listed by the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) as one of the ambassadors for the campaign against coronavirus pandemic.
The global campaign which is tagged #TableTennisUnited against the coronavirus pandemic is aimed at raising fund to support the athletes, coaches, umpires, national associations and field projects who are all in need of a helping hand in these difficult times.
”TableTennisUnited is a show of defiant solidarity in the face of a COVID-19 enforced shutdown of the sport and any donations that you can spare will be hugely appreciated by the whole table tennis family.” A statement said.
It read, “To give voice to the campaign, a social media campaign #PassTheBall sees selected ambassadors including Quadri recording special messages to call for support for the fundraiser campaign while holding on to the ball, before passing the ball on to the next person.
Quadri joins former world number 1 player Timo Boll of Germany and three-time world champion Ding Ning of China as the ambassadors in the campaign.
The campaign which is championed by the ITTF foundation in collaboration with ITTF and World Table Tennis (WTT) is poised to rise more than $250,000 for the cause.
