Junior and senior table tennis players partner for tournament
In an effort to stay active ahead of a busy 2020 schedule the junior and senior National Table Tennis players have joined forces to stage a two-day tournament at the Malteenoes Sports Club this weekend.
The initiative will see one junior player paired with a senior. Pairs will be divided into two groups of five and will contest on a round-robin format to advance to the knockout rounds.
It will be the best three of five matches and the top three teams will be rewarded prizes in the form of hampers and trophies. Teams will be selected by way of pulling names from a bag.
The juniors players are Kaysan Ninvalle, Terrence Rausch, Johnathan VanLange, Colin Wong, Isiah Layne, Niran Bissu, Dhanesh Persaud, Curtis McRae, Thuria Thomas and Linden’s top junior southpaw Joshua Lucas.
Seniors will come from Christopher Franklin, Shemar Britton, Joel Alleyne, Nigel Bryan, Orin Hickerson, Devon Richmond, Warren Hackshaw, Elishaba Johnson, Johnathan Sankar and Natalie Cummings.
The entry fee is $2,000 per team. Action on Saturday is from 15:00h, while on Sunday play starts 16:00h.
