The first ever African-made table tennis table “TAKO” was unveiled in the Western Region earlier this month.
The table, which is made up of 100% high-quality Ghanaian materials, was launched by the country director of Ping San Frontieres, Ishmael Abraham Armah, two weeks ago at the Takoradi mall.
Ping San Frontieres was founded by France-based Cameroonian lawyer and professional table tennis player Sarah Hanffou with the aim of reducing the ecological footprints and making table tennis accessible and as a tool for global development.
Sarah, who’s currently in Tokyo getting ready for the Olympics, spoke to Joy Sports’ Owuraku Ampofo about why she chose Ghana for this project.
