Earlier in June (June 16) we had the first Junior development Tournament of 2013, I’m a bit late in posting this report from Kevin Haines who managed this event…

On a generally wintery day, 33 players played in the first of the Junior development tournaments for 2013. The level of entries meant for some good sized round robin groupings resulting in plenty of table tennis for those who attended. The standard was good to better with all appearing to benefit from the experience and the opportunity to plenty of games.
