Table Tennis Fiji Games Comp Began Today

Competition for Table Tennis XV Fiji Games 2017 began today with 20 athletes attending the second of three trails for the 2017 Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu in December and the first trail for the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, Australia.

A total of 20 athletes participated in the Table Tennis event that was played as a round robin event in the male and female category.

After each round points are awarded to winners with the overall winner having the most points.

Today was the second round of trials for those wanting to make the team to the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu with the final trials to take place on Saturday.

Fiji Table Tennis President Anthony Ho said they were expecting to see some tough matches especially from the young athletes challenging each other.

He said there were still a few places left to make the team to the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu.

Anthony said the Fiji Games was an important event for them as well as they would use it to prepare for various events that would come up.

"We have several international commitments and this includes the ITTF World Cadet in October which is the first time ever Fiji will host such an event," he said.

"As well as the youth qualification events in Australia later in November."

So far the Yee sisters of Grace and Sally along with fellow Team Fiji member Carolyn Yi have been dominate in their matches and 12-year-old Vicky Wu looks to be the one to beat in the Mens division.

Singles and Para competitions end on Saturday with the double events finishing on Sunday.
