The ARUCAD ANKA men’s table tennis team placed fourth in the Turkish 2nd Division.
Arkın Creative Arts and Design University (ARUCAD) became the sponsor of the Anka Sports Association through an agreement signed in 2020. The team has since been competing in the TRNC and Turkey Table Tennis Leagues under the name “ARUCAD Anka”.
In his statement, ARUCAD ANKA President Ahmet Aknar stated that as a result of finishing in the top eight after the matches played in the first stage of the Turkish Table Tennis Federation (TMTF) 2nd Division, they had reached the play-offs. In the play-off matches held in Bursa on 20-22 May 2022, ARUCAD ANKA was undefeated and, as a result, won the 4th place cup of the 2nd Division by winning seven matches out of seven. President Aknar said, “We have brought the 2nd Division 4th place trophy to Northern Cyprus. I would like to thank the managers of ARUCAD and our athletes’ parents who have trusted and supported us.”
ARUCAD Rector Prof. Dr. Asım Vehbi said, “We are very happy with the success of ARUCAD ANKA, which we have been sponsoring for 2 years. As a result of their efforts and beliefs, they have brought the 4th place cup to Northern Cyprus. As the ARUCAD family, we would like to thank the President of ARUCAD ANKA, club managers and all our athletes both for this success and for continuing to bring championships to us. May the successes continue.”
