“With that approach I have no doubt you will return with medals,” the Sport Minister said.
Minister Grange was addressing the players during a visit to one of their practice sessions on Tuesday, August 14 at the Jamaica Theological Seminary in Kingston. Through the intervention of the Minister, Table Tennis Jamaica has received additional funding from the Sport Development Foundation towards the tournament.
