– I remember in the backyard of the school with a metal table. We picked up a wooden board instead of a racket and played after classes. It seems, that was the time, when my interest in table tennis arose. Then, during the years of study on the exchange program in China, there was an opportunity to test my strength and play with foreign students. It was then I honed my skills. I always liked this type of sport, though I have never practiced professionally. The victory was unexpected but pleasant.
– I was very pleased to participate with colleagues in this tournament. I would like more people to participate in the future and increase competition among the female half. It is great that such events are held in our organization. After an active vacation work is more pleasant. It is honor for me to represent the Company at the city stage.
At the end of the event, there was awards ceremony. The winners were given an honorary diplomas and valuable prizes.
Camilla Shamsutdinova and Nodirkhon Alautdinov will be participating in the city stage of the competition between employees of mobile operators in November.
Useful and with fun, this is how Ucell employees spend their free time.
