The prefecture high school sports meet will be held in Tokushima Prefecture on June 4. The men's table tennis team in the high school of the Tokushima School for the Deaf will participate in the Prefecture High School Sports Meet for the first time in 15 years.

Two students were admitted to the high school this spring which made up four players to meet the requirement for the participation. They have enthusiastically practiced, saying "We want to win even one game with a good teamwork".

The men's table tennis club has a brilliant history of winning successive victories at the National School Table Tennis Championships for the Deaf in 1994 and 1995. At that time there were six club members, who won through to third round at the Prefecture High School Sports Meet.

The team is earnestly working on the practice for the upcoming sports meet in June.
