PNG’s Emerging Sport: Table Tennis

Given the unfortunate season for Table Tennis in Port Moresby, Table Tennis still has a formidable team for the Pacific Games next year.

Moses Tolingling of PNG Table Tennis has steered away from the negatives and is looking forward to bringing his sport to success in 2015.


Unlucky in terms of sponsorship unable to fund a table tennis season for Port Moresby, President of PNG Table Tennis, Moses Tolingling, remains confident.


Due to the availability of several venues, last year welcomed its fair share of table tennis competitions. However, this year, Tubuserea was the only registered association to hold a competition.


With the PNG Games commencing in 170 days and the Pacific Games just over a year away, the inconsistency of competition throughout the Southern Region has affected preparations of the table tennis fraternity.


Table tennis, however, is showing good indications. Upon return from the Oceania Cup held during the Easter Weekend, a 14 year-old superstar returned as the number 1 in Papua New Guinea.


Although the sport has steered away from the public eye, it still remains an elite sport, contributing to the success of sport in PNG as a whole.
