Ghana’s women claim silver at West Africa ping pong Championships

Ghana impressed at the 2024 ITTF West Africa Regional Championships, with both Borteye and Baah-Danso reaching the women’s singles semi-finals, while Borquaye progressed to the quarter-finals.

Ghana’s women’s table tennis team secured a well-deserved silver medal at the 2024 International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) West Africa Regional Championships held in Lomé, Togo, from 25 April to 27 April.

The team, comprising Cynthia Kwabi, Joanita Borteye, Blessing Labanti, Bernice Borquaye and Celia Baah-Danso, dominated Group 2, defeating Benin, Togo, and Guinea to advance to the semi-finals.

Their dominance continued in the knockout stages, with a convincing 3-0 victory over Ivory Coast. Borteye, Kwabi and Baah-Danso all secured straight-set wins against their Ivorian counterparts.

However, the final against Nigeria proved a sterner test. Despite a valiant effort from Borteye, who secured Ghana’s sole win in the final, Nigeria’s Hope Udoaka ultimately emerged victorious, clinching gold for her team.

Ghana’s impressive showing extends beyond the team event. Both Borteye and Baah-Danso reached the women’s singles semi-finals, while Borquaye progressed to the quarter-finals.

The men’s team, featuring James Marfo, Michael Yeboah, Israel Aklie, Samuel Akayade and Emmanuel Commey, also reached the semi-finals before being halted by eventual champions Togo.
