Table tennis tournaments postponed
11:51 pm GMT+12, 05/12/2019, Fiji

The Fiji Table Tennis Association has taken heed of the advice given by the Fiji Sports Commission by postponing all sporting events for this month in light of the measles outbreak.

 Association President Narendra Lal says this had to be done in order to ensure the safety of the players, officials and the public.

 Lal says the plan was to conduct table tennis clinics for youth who have their school breaks this time of the year.

"We have been stopped from having any gathering due to this measles outbreak that’s going on, so, until January, I think we won’t be playing, said Lal.

 Lal said the postponement will affect their preparations for tournamentsnext year.
