Anirban Roy Chowdhury in action
The Karnataka Table Tennis Association recently honoured players who brought accolades at the national level. Shreyal Telang, Akshay Mahunta, V P Charan, Vedanth M Urs, R Harshith and Sunand Vasan were given cash prizes and also a high quality blade and rubber each.

This is an amazing way to encourage budding talent. We hope that many other associations follow suit.
