Posted : 07 March 2024

Egypt, Nigeria, Algeria, Tunisia, and Madagascar have advanced to the quarterfinals of the men's table tennis team event at the 13th African Games in Accra, Ghana.

Egypt emerged as the leader in group 1 after defeating Ethiopia and Gabon 3-0, maintaining their 100 percent record.

Nigeria, drawn in group 2 alongside Congo DR and Mauritania, topped the group with a 3-0 win over both teams.

Algeria also defeated Angola and Guinea with a 3-0 margin to progress to the last eight, while Tunisia defeated Cote d’Ivoire and Kenya to advance.

Madagascar edged Ghana and Sudan to join the league of elite teams in the quarterfinals.

Second-placed teams in each group will battle for the remaining three slots in the quarterfinals to determine the pairings.

In the women’s team event, Egypt, South Africa, Nigeria, and Tunisia have booked their spots in the semifinals after topping their groups.

They await the second-placed teams in the four groups to determine their semifinal pairings.

Meanwhile, the President of the African Table Tennis Federation (ATTF), Khaled El-Salhy, has commended all the participating teams for the standard of play.

He also hailed the host, Ghana, for creating a good atmosphere for the event.

“I am so excited that we have over 19 countries in the event, and we are particularly happy with what Ghana has put in place to ensure the success of the event.

“We are lucky to be the first sport to start competing at the 13th African Games, and this has shown again that table tennis is fast returning to Ghana, just like it was in the 1970s.

“We look forward to more exciting matches, just like what we had in the finals of the singles event, which is a good advertisement for table tennis to the world,” he said.
