Heath’s Deputy General Manager Nevra Onursal Karagak said in his speech: “The epidemic that affects the world not only affects our economy and social life, but also our relationship with sports, which is an essential part of a healthy life. The future benefits of adopting sports as a way of life have become more important. Because of this, we are also experiencing the excitement of touching the lives of our children again during the normalization process with flying rackets, which we had to take a mandatory break from. We are continuing with our project, Sunliurfa, which we have already realized in Koram, Esparta and Trabzon. We are happy to introduce table tennis to 85,000 students in 100 schools in Sanliurfa alone. Also, by providing material support to our 5 schools on the Syrian border, our children in these schools will also have the opportunity to benefit from the project. We will continue to bring the game of table tennis to children in the future by realizing the flying racket in different provinces and will continue to make it popular as a mass sport. ”
