Usapang Sports tackles table tennis, billiards, basketball

Three sports -- table tennis, billiards and basketball -- will be up for discussions in the 10th ‘Usapang Sports’ presented by the Tabloid Organization in Philippine Sports on Thursday at the National Press Club in Intramuros, Manila.

Table Tennis Association for National Development, headed by honorary president Charlie Lim, will talk about the 9th Flexible Cup International Table Tennis Championship scheduled Feb. 15 to 17 at the Harrison Plaza Activity Center in Manila.

Lim will be joined during the 10 a.m. session by veteran internationalist John Russel Misal, who will talk about his experience in the World Championship of Pingpong in London, where he reached the Round-of-16.

Also appearing in the weekly forum supported by the Philippine Sports Commission, under Chairman William "Butch" Ramirez, and National Press Club, led by president Rolando "Lakay" Gonzalo, are billiards champion Marlon Manalo and Quezon City Basketball League officials.

Manalo, also the chairman of Barangay Malamig in Mandaluyong, will discuss billiards' chances in the 30th Southeast Asian Games on November.

QCBL officials, led by BJ Manalo, and Alvin Grey, coach of QCBL champion Trinity University, are also attending the session to update the public about the newest commercial/collegiate league in Quezon City.

TOPS president Ed Andaya of People’s Tonight is inviting all officers and members to join the discussions.

TOPS is composed of editors, reporters, columnists and photographers of the country's leading tabloids, along with PTV-4 and other major broadsheets.
