Betway Ghana, over the weekend, organized a training workshop for volleyball and table tennis teams in the Eastern Region under the Betway Up programme,
The workshop held in the Region’s capital Koforidua was attended by female and male volleyball community teams as well as table tennis teams, who went home fulfilled.
The teams were sensitized in the areas of sports science, coaching and fitness.
Betway also made a donation of volleyball and table tennis equipment to aid them in achieving their goals.
The event also saw a practical session at the Koforidua Technical University volleyball court which offered the participants the opportunity to demonstrate their volleyball prowess under the supervision of former national volleyball team captain, Eric Antwi Ofori.
A Sport and Exercise Physician Scientist, Dr Aniemena-George Chidi, who is also the Team Doctor for Obuasi Ashanti Gold Sporting Club, engaged the players on sport science centered on the need to engage in sports and healthy activities.
He advised that to be able to stay fit and be at the peak of their performances at all times, athletes must be cautious of the food they eat given that some foods take longer time to digest which could affect their performance on the field.
“One of the nutritious but cheapest foods we have in this country is cocoanut water and I will recommend to all teams to priorities it because it is rich and good for the wellbeing of their players,” he said.
Dr. Chidi entreated them to exercise control, apply concentration, and always remain confident and committed to the sports.
For his part, Mr. Antwi Ofori urged the athletes to exercise humility wherever they find themselves and also to be focused on their goal, adding that was the only way to success.
