THE 2nd Visayas Junior Table Tennis Qualifying Tournament which opened Friday will run until Sunday at the Loptta Training Center in Bacolod City.
About 80 young paddlers from across the region converged in the city for the tournament sanctioned by the Table Tennis Association of the Philippines and organized by the Lopue’s Table Tennis Association (Loptta).
The event features six age-group divisions: junior boys singles 17 and under, junior girls’ singles 17 and under, cadet boys’ singles 14 and under, cadet girls’ singles 14 and under, cadet boys’ singles 12 and under, and cadet girls’ singles 12 and under.
The top four finishers in each category will qualify for the Best of the Best Challenge this October which serves as the identification process for next year’s national junior players.
Registration fee is pegged at P200 per player who can compete only in one category.
Host-Loptta paddlers, who suited up for the Philippine junior team in the SEA Junior Championships in Brunei Daraussalam, are expected to shine in this tournament. (HGD)
