Home Sports Beacon Café invests in future of table tennis in Guyana
By Timothy Jaikarran
The Guyanese contingent that have departed to participate in 2019 Caribbean Mini and Pre Cadet Table Tennis Championships have had their fair share of experience in the tournament this year. As such, one of the major sponsors, Kumar Ramdeo, Proprietor of Beacon Café, has seen it fit to invest in the future of Guyana.
In an interview with <<<Guyana Times Sport>>> Ramdeo said, “For me, I really want to see these talents develop, that is why Beacon Café is putting its efforts behind these players. Because there is tremendous talent behind these youngsters and I know that sports is one of the ways in which we can develop their talent. There are many opportunities that presents itself in sports, and it would be a waste of talent to know that these guys cannot participate and hone their gift”.
Ramdeo also noted that the other factor that draws him to the sport is the efforts put in by the coach, Dwain Dick of the Titans Table Tennis Club that makes Ramdeo feel compelled to support the future minds of Guyana. He also noted that he will continue to show his support to sports in general and this is an area that will allow athletes to grow and realise their true potential. He also relayed that table tennis in Guyana has a far way to go and has great potential and Beacon will be there to support.
Before the team had departed, Ramdeo had presented some members of the club with their very own T-shirts. It should be noted that Ramdeo is also a sponsor of one of the players Colin Wong.
The members originating out of the Titans Table Tennis Club were Jonathan Van Lange, Krystian Sahadeo, Dhanesh Persaud and Colin Wong who represented the boys under 13 and Jasmine Billingy and Samarra Sukhai in the girls under 11.
