Presence of players from “Lanka Kids” project was seen as the dedication of teacher coaches as well as parents and players of the lesser-privileged schools in the province.

A Video presentation of the activities done by KDTTA in the past year which attracted all the players, parents and well wishers shows the enthusiasm of the committee of KDTTA to develop the game not only in Central Province but also in the whole country.

Mr.Anuradha Jayaratne, president of KDTTA and the private secretary to the prime minister gives the fullest support to do this honorary work to KDTTA committee. His donation of six tables to lesser-privileged schools along with the equipment support from ITTF through a youth project of UNDSOP done by Sahanaka Ganegoda had been an immense help and encouragement to the team KDTTA. The support received by Hon. Mahindananda Aluthgamage, Sports Minister, and Education department in Central Province was praiseworthy.
