The Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH) will come alive for the two days from 10:00h daily as players the calibre of Jasmine Billingy, Thuraia Thomas, star player Kaysan Ninvalle, Jomal Nichols and Isaiah Layne compete across categories ranging from U-9, U-11, U-13, U-15 to U-18.

One big downside to the tournament will be the absence of two of the country’s top male youth players in Jonathan Van Lange and Krystian Sahadeo. The youngsters will miss the event as they are currently on a month’s tour of the United States of America.
Titans Table Tennis Club President Dwain Dick praised the National Sports Commission (NSC) for throwing its full support behind the tournament, adding that 2018 was a good year for the Club. “It’s our last event for the year; we can say we had a very active year after hosting three tournaments and a summer camp”.
Also, the tournament offers a B Class category for players of all ages who would simply like to just play table tennis.
