Nigeria’s Aruna Quadri has been listed in three-man Joola team that will feature in this week’s 17th edition of North American Table Tennis Teams Championships holding in United States.
Quadri, who is ranked 30 in the world, will be joined by former world champion and Olympian, Jörg Roßkopf as well as Austria’s Chen Weixing.
The 2014 NATT tournament holds from November 28 to 30 at the National Harbor, Maryland inside the Gaylord National Resort.
Quadri will be making his debut in the competition powered by Germany-based kits firm, Joola.
Weixing, a veteran of the tournament and also world ranked 49, will add his defensive style to the Joola team.
The organizers believe Quadri will add glamour to the tournament with his superb forehand, which has helped him to defeat some of the top rated players in the world.
In a statement made available to NationSport by the organizers, the three-day championships promises to be exciting.
