The Chika Chukwumerije Sports Foundation (CCSF) will hold the sixth CCSF Invitational Taekwondo Open on Saturday at the Indoor Basketball Hall of the M.K.O Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.
According to the foundation, 100 youth athletes, comprising 64 men and 36 women, from six Abuja-based clubs are confirmed for the event. The FCT Taekwondo Association sanctioned event will use an electronic display scoring system, while the competition will be in a round robin format to ensure participants get enough exposure and experience.
To engage spectators, the organisers said they had injected many fun activities into the event. These include a free morning aerobic/fitness class, fun table tennis and video games areas and a bouncing castle for children.
Vendors have also been engaged to provide food and drinks to spectators, and DJs will liven the atmosphere with music all day, they said. To cap off the day, an outdoor dance-off competition will help thrill FCT residents to a sports entertainment themed event, CCSF said.
