Kumasi, March 15, GNA - Mr Anthony K. Adusei, Ashanti Regional Sports Development Office has called for the proper development of other sporting disciplines in the country.

He said many talents abound in other sporting disciplines and it is proper that "we give them the chance to develop their potentials". Mr Adusei said this in an address at the closing ceremony of a one-day league competition organised by the Ashanti Regional Volleyball Association for Tertiary Institutions and other Clubs in Kumasi City as part of activities to mark the inauguration of the Association.

He said the development of the various disciplines depended on the individual's interested to showcase their talent and potentials and therefore urged the various coaches and Physical Education Teachers to assist in unearthing such talents across the country. "What you have done today is a motivation to develop your talents and that of others".

In the matches, KNUST beat Georgia Club in two straight sets, 15-13 and 15-8 with Kumasi Polytechnic losing in two straight sets to Prempeh Club, 12-15, 12-15.
