Nigeria’s duo of Aruna Quadri and Segun Toriola had easy passage to the second round of the on-going ITTF Africa Top 16 Cup after winning their group matches in Khartoum, Sudan yesterday.

Quadri maintained 100 per cent with victories over Togo’s Mawussi Agbetoglo, Algeria’s Aissa Belkaddi and Sudan’s Mohamed Nadir to top the group and advanced to the knockout stage.

Toriola was in fine form with wins over Congo Brazzaville’s Saheed Idowu, Algeria’s Soudes Alassani and Ghana’s Derek Abrefa to Berth in the knockout stage.

Egypt’s duo of Omar Assar and El-Sayed Lashin also maintained their status with 100 per cent wins.

In the women’s event, the likes of Nigeria’s Edem Offiong, Congo Brazzaville’s Han Xing and Egypt’s pair of Dina Meshref recorded outright victories in their matches to progress to the knockout stage.
