An information technology firm, Phase3 Telecom, has unveiled a table tennis championship it promised to sustain on an annual basis in the country.
Tagged Phase 3 Table Tennis Championship (P3TTC), its inaugural edition was held in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Stanley Jegede, who declared the competition open with exhibition matches between the company’s top executives and partners, said the firm will continue to encourage sports development in the country.
Jegede said sports can be a veritable platform to sustain workplace wellness programmes and client/partner relationship. “P3TTC is to encourage and advocate active sports in Nigeria’s corporate environment as a tool to drive innovation and high performance in the workplace. Sporting activity is one of the best activities an individual can engage in because it is competitive, good for character build-up, rewarding and fun-filled,” he said.
Phase3 Telecom’s Company Secretary, Adebayo Azeez, won the inaugural competition after defeating the Jegede and the Director of Engineering (DoE), Ajibade Momolosho.
Head of Corporate Administration, Mark Chiazor, said many of the workers enjoyed watching people engaged in omne sporting activities or the other, adding that the competition will promote wellness in the workplace.
Chief Coordinator, P3TTC 2013, Stilo Ogbonda, said a well organised sporting activity will naturally attract participants. This he said will further be given fillip when the prizes on offer are fantastic. Prizes on offer include refrigerators, laptops and other consolation prizes.
