Starting with an initial serve, the lightweight hollow ball is propelled back and forth across the net by
small rackets, creating a moment for its audience to gaze while the players showcase their mental
toughness, focus and desire. Table Tennis is one of the most elite sports played
in the world and for us at J’pura it has always brought fame as of the dedication and excellence of
our undergraduates. The sterling defensive skills, the unreadable forehand and
the powerful backhand of our J’pura Table Tennis champions has always proven its quality and
calibre in the past few years at the annual Inter University Games.
Crowning as the champions under both the boy’s and girl’s categories in 2015, being defending
champions in the year 2016 under the boy’s category, winning silver medals
under the girl’s category in 2016 as well as winning silver medals again in the year 2017 under both
the categories in the Inter University Games, are just a few notable achievements from a lengthy list
of accomplishments of our proud teams of University of Sri Jayewardenepura.
Even in this year 2018, they are ready to preserve the glory we have gained through years, under
the guidance and leadership of Imantha Udanjaya and Isuri Dammulla as the captains of the boy’s
and girl’s teams respectively and Mr. Dinesh Deshapriya as the coach of the
teams who inspires our young TT players at J’pura with experience and guidance. May the teams
remain composed, even in the face of relentless match pressure, when our skilled players
commence the first match in the first round of Inter University Games, at University
of Moratuwa. We wish them best of luck and all the strength, to go for the gut again and again, to
return in the perfect manner, to topspin, to chop and block as victory sides with those who dare and
all the success come to those who strive the best for J’pura.
