Aruna Quadri Makes ITTF World Cup List

Nigeria’s top seed Aruna Quadri has been named on the 20-man list for this year’s ITTF Men’s World Cup in Paris, France.

He had earlier missed out on the tournament after his 4-3 loss to Omar Asser of Egypt at the 2018 Top 16 Africa Cup but was considered for the tournament, scheduled for October 19 to 21, based on his July ITTF Ranking.

His participation was confirmed through an invitation signed by the head of World Cup and ITTF Challenge, Zena Sim.

The letter from the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) read: “On behalf of the ITTF, we would like to invite Quadri Aruna to participate in the Liebherr 2018 Men’s World Cup in Paris from 19-21 Oct. Quadri Aruna qualified based on his status as 2018 Africa Cup 2nd place (after taking the July World Ranking (WR) in consideration).”
