Islamic Forum for Australian Muslims (IFAM), Rooty Hill has been organising table tennis competitions for the youth every year.
This year the youth table tennis competition was held at Australian Islamic college of Sydney (AICS), Mount Druitt.
There were 32 players who participated in the competition in a warm and enthusiastic way. Brother Rab Nawaz, IFAM President in Rooty Hill, and Brother Fiaz Qureshi, IFAM Vice president in Rooty Hill, supervised all activities and helped in the successful conclusion of this competition.
All the winners were awarded trophies by the chief guest Mr Masoud Cheema, chairman of AICS. He commended the organisers for arranging such healthy activities and for staying committed for a better future for our youth.
First prize was won by Razi Amjad, while Moeid Qureshi and Aadil Ali stood second and third respectively. They were greatly applauded by the audience.
Brother Rab Nawaz thanked all the participants and guests in the end and prayed for the success of our youth in their future endeavours.
Such programs help to make our youth better prepared for the future and give them a great deal of physical and mental strength.
Sports have always been the means to bring the individuals close to each other where they interact to form a meaningful bonding. It helps utilise their energies in some effective and positive way.
This has also been one of the priorities of IFAM to involve youth in a number of sports and Islamic educational activities with the purpose to shape them for active roles in the community.
