Chinese table tennis coach Yao visit Pakistan after 30 years

KARACHI – Chinese table tennis coach Yao Zhen Xu, who changed fortunes of Pakistan players during his three-year coaching stint from 1975 to 1977, arrives here on October 4 on the invitation of the Pakistan Table Tennis Federation (PTTF) on a short visit to deliver lectures on the game. “The veteran coach has acceded to our request and will arrive here from Bangkok on a four-day visit,” PTTF president SM Sibtain, said on Monday. He added that during his four-day stay in the country, the coach would deliver lectures in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

Yao Zhen Xu, 68, will be visiting Pakistan after almost three decades. The last time he came was in 1986 during the Asia Cup Table Tennis Championship held in the city.
