The ARUCAD Anka Sports Association won the Pembe Soyadlı Senior Teams Memorial Championship, organised by the Northern Cyprus Table Tennis Federation last Saturday. Last night our rector Prof. Dr. Asım Vehbi presented the cup to the winners at the event which took place in Garden.
Sponsored by Arkın University of Creative Arts and Design, ARUCAD ANKA won the first place in the men’s category at the Pembe Soyadlı Senior Teams Memorial Championship held at the Northern Cyprus Table Tennis Federation on June 5.
Due to the pandemic, it had not been possible to hold table tennis matches for over a year. The ARUCAD ANKA team, which became the champion in the first tournament held after the pandemic, presented the cup they won to Prof. Dr. Asım Vehbi. Rector Vehbi, who had dinner with the ARUCAD ANKA team, made the following statements: “First of all, I heartily congratulate our athletes and coaches. As an Art-Design-Communication oriented university, we are taking new steps in the field of sports, and this victory is a matter of great pride for us. Together with ARUCAD ANKA, I declare table tennis as our priority sport and hope that a team will emerge from the university in the future. I also congratulate ARUCAD ANKA President, coach Ahmet Aknar and wish our trainers and athletes every success in the upcoming tournaments and the Turkish League.”
