Jordan’s Mutah team has won the women’s silver at the 1st West Asian Table Tennis Club Championship held in Amman, after losing the final to Al Nadwa from Lebanon 3-2.
The team of Sewar Abu Al Yemen, Tayma' Abu Al Yemen and Bara' Al Wedyan reached the final following some stunning performances, including a victory for Sewar over Lebanese Olympian Mariana Sahakian.
The team earlier won Group A after beating Shabab Nablus, from Palestine, and Al Madinah, from Jordan.
Meanwhile, the host’s Men's teams missed out at the Group stage with Saudi Arabia’s Al Etihad beating fellow Saudi side Al Sawari in the final.
The President of both the Jordan and West Asian Table Tennis Federations, Fawwaz Al Sharabi, was pleased with the organisational level of the championship, as well as the quality of play.
“There were a lot of professional players, especially in the Gulf teams, so it was a pleasure to see how high the level of play was and congratulations to all of the winners,” he said.
