Rudy Hesty claims Open as Singapore gets back into action

Rudy Hesty (Jurong Central SC) took 1st place in the Table Football Association of Singapore (TFAS) Safe Distancing Tournament 2021, which was a FISTF International Open event, over the weekend.
It has been more then a year since Singapore had a tournament due to COVID-19 hence the TFAS committee had to work extra hard to ensure strict social distancing measures were complied to.
International Secretary Vikas Chandiramani said the TFAS was happy when it could get everything in place including safe distancing measures based on national guidelines. He worked closely with FISTF Sports Director Eric Naszalyi to ensure the event would have IO status.
In the end, 16 participants took part in the event at the ‘spiritual home’ of the TFAS: the Singapore Sports Hub Library.
Kudos to Table Football Association of Singapore and the players.
