Ganeshan first Indian in international TT officials' body

IANS logoIANS 03-06-2017

Ganeshan is the first Indian to make it to the URC. His term as a URC member is for a period of two years and is extendable.

This was among the better news coming for Indian fans from Dusseldorf, Germany, on a day when India's engagement at the World Championships came to an end.

Following the annual general meeting (AGM) of the world table tennis body earlier this week, the Board of Directors of various committees met on the sidelines of the ongoing World Championships and handpicked the best in business for the job.

In another first, Ganeshan has also been recommended as the Technical Commissioner from Asia to the ITTF and his term will be for a period of four years.

Ganeshan, who has been a part and parcel of the table tennis scene in the Asian region and other championships abroad as competition manager, will now be in the thick of working at the URC, the technical arm of the ITTF which looks after all technical issues involving the sport.

Ganeshan is also the chairman of the South Asian Federation technical committee and a member of the Technical Committee of the Commonwealth Table Tennis Federation.

Ganeshan, who supervised the Asian Championships at Wuxi (China) as competition manager last month, was a deputy referee in the Kuala Lumpur World Championships 2016. He has also officiated in various International competitions as Competition Manger and Referee, including the Commonwealth Games at Glasgow in 2014.
