VTU Inter Collegiate Table Tennis Tournament 2012-13
T. John Institute of Technology hosted Visvesvaraya Technological University Inter Collegiate Bangalore South Zone Table Tennis on 28th and 29th February, 2012 at Auditorium.
At the out set, I would like to profusely thanks to Director, Directorate of Physical Education & Sports VTU for giving an opportunity to host VTU Inter-Collegiate Bangalore South Zone Table Tennis Tournament 2012-13, particularly our Dr. A N N Murthy, Principal, T. John Institute of Technology, Bangalore, for having reposed confidence in me to conduct the said tournament as CONVENER.
The Tournament was held in the newly constructed Indoor Auditorium of T John Institute of Technology. In fact, the said tournament was the first event to take place in this Auditorium which has a very spacious hall where we arranged 6 Table Tennis Tables with nice infrastructure.
As many as 23 Teams in Men and 12 Teams in Women participated in this tournament to vie for top honours. Added attraction was that currently State No.1 both in Men and Youth, Sri A.R.Naveeth (BNMIT) apart from other former State players both in Men & Women took part in this tournament. Totally it was colourful show. The entire credit goes to the indefatigable efforts of the Organising committee which resulted in tournament ending on successful note.
