Water-polo in Ghana with Hungarian help

Donations of the African-Hungarian Union were handed over in the Hungarian House (HTCC) in Accra to help Ghanaian water-polo.


Ghana would have excellent conditions for water sports but only few learn to swim and even fewer do water sports.

The Water Polo Association of Ghana asked HTCC in Accra to support the start of water-polo in the country.

The donations (caps and balls) were handed over by Mr. Sándor Balogh, president of AHU in the Hungarian House on Sunday at a special ceremony.

Mr. Zsolt Németh, Hungarian Foreign Ministry’s Minister of State, Mr. Elvis Afriye Ankrah, Minister of Sports and Youth of the Republic of Ghana, and Ms. Hannah Tetteh, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country were present at the event.  

Mr. Tibor Benedek, coach of the Hungarian men’s water-polo national team sent a video message wishing his best to the African players.

Mr. Ibrahim Dakka, captain of the national team of Ghana hopes that Hungarian coaches and other sports professionals will help develop water-polo in Ghana soon.

The HTCC in Accra is another Hungarian House in the network that is designed to help Hungarian businessmen to get into the African market.  There are similar Hungarian Houses in Rabat, Morocco and Kampala, Uganda and others are being planned to open on the continent.
