For many years, Nigeria as a country has produced many table-tennis players, but same cannot be said of today, maybe because football has taken the shine off the ping pong sport. Great players such as Yomi Bankole; Atanda Musa; Segun Toriola; Funke Oshonaike, Aruna Quadri and other ping-pongers rose to prominence, but that has since changed as the country is no longer a force to reckon with in the racquet sport.

The number of Nigerian table-tennis players making waves outside the shores of the country are diminishing by the day, compared to the number of their counterparts playing football outside the country. This clearly shows that table-tennis is gradually dying in the country.

Poverty and hardship hits the sub-cultural sports or trends first, me thinks. ;( ;( ;(

Hopefully Nigeria has some passionate young players who could continue the legacy while I also hope the older generation could do what they can to promote table tennis..

MNNB! I must say as a Nigerian, I am very surprised and happy that non Nigerians have shown some interest in the state of Nigerian table tennis at the moment. It makes me very sad to see the game in such a abysmal state in Nigeria at the moment. I do pray that it changes....
