Table Tennis: Nigeria qualify for 2018 World Championship

Nigeria have qualified for the 2018 World Team Championships holding in Sweden as the African table tennis ruling body, ITTF Africa, on Thursday unveiled the list of qualified teams for the tournament.

The teams were made known following the outcome of the participating countries at the 2016 ITTF African Senior Championships holding in Agadir, Morocco.

In the men’s team list, Egypt and Nigeria qualified based on their performance at the Perfect 2016 World Team Championships held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in which they finished among the top 36 countries in the world.

Togo also secured its place after finishing second in the fourth division at the Perfect 2016 World Team Championship in Malaysia.

Others like Algeria, Congo Brazzaville, Tunisia, South Africa and Senegal qualified based on their results in the team event at the 2016 ITTF African Senior Championships in Agadir, Morocco.
However in the list of qualified team for women, Nigeria was missing following the absence of its female team at the ITTF Africa Senior Championships, with Egypt also topping the list.
