Anna Wilson vs. Australia

Table Tennis New Zealand is excited to be sending a team of 15 players to the Australian Junior Championships in Wollongong in July after a collaborative agreement was signed between TTNZ and TTA aimed at fostering development. The last Junior Team to participate in Australian Junior Championships was in Queensland in 2010.

From Wellington we have Anna Wilson selected by TTNZ – congratulations from all of us to Anna!
