National junior table tennis players, Briton Murray and Joshua Lalbcahan are among the favourites to wield their racquets when more than 40 players convene in the auditorium of the Berbice High School for 3rd edition of the New Amsterdam/Canje Schools Table Tennis competition which gets underway tomorrow morning at 09:00hrs.
Players will compete in several categories including Under-11, 13, 15 and 18. There will also be a special category for C Class players and the organizers are anticipating keenly contested matches. The top flight players have been debarred from competing in the latter category but this does not include the top four finishers in the U-15 and 18 years categories.
The tournament is restricted to players from the New Amsterdam Canje catchment area but the organizers have extended a special invitation to players from the GuySuco Training Centre, students from the University of Guyana and recruits from the Guyana Police Force living in the catchment area.
Otherwise, several top players will enhance the tournament including Nicholas Lawrence, Christophe Sookhu, Jadon Conway and Joshua Butts among others. Among the C class players expected to feature are Brenthnol Richards, Anthony Amerally, Alton Holder and Ryan Alexander whilst female player, former Caribbean Junior Girls Champion, Petal Bennet will also be among the front runners.
The tournament is sponsored by overseas based Guyanese, Berbician, Souvenir Ranmdyal and organized by the Berbice Table Tennis Sub Association. Representatives of the sponsor will meet the players shortly before declaring the competition open and return for the distribution of prizes at the end.
Incentives will be available for the top four performers in each category as well as the most outstanding player, the most promising and the most improved among others. Interested persons can make contact with Coordinator Floyd Conway, Richard Thompson, Desiree Lancaster, Levi Nedd or Alton Holder Straker for added information.
