Chairman of HOCCA, Innocent Kodzo Dey tells Herosportsgh.com the Awards is to announce their existence to the general public.
“The essence of the Awards is to inform the public about Playing cards. We have heard of people playing football, netball, Handball, Volleyball, tennis and others in the region. Most people are aware of all these events but never heard of Playing cards. We, therefore, want to be recognized as a serious sporting Association.”
It is evident that Cards playing has been on a low key with little or no publicity but it is very vibrant in Accra as a media house (Obonu FM) covers activities of the inter-community league.
Trophies and cash prizes are available to grab at the Awards ceremony come tomorrow, with winners taking home GH₵1000.00 as 1st and 2nd runner ups won’t be left out.

Political wings in the Volta region and Chiefs are also expected to grace the occasion.
