What is the ‘perfect Christmas gift’ for the table tennis player? The simple answer is an entry for the 7th NatWest Jersey Open at Easter 2013!
“Repeat entries have been coming in already for our increasingly popular NatWest Jersey Open at Easter, part of the ETTA Grand Prix circuit for 2012/13,” said J.T.T.A. President Chris Band. “Good Friday sees the team tournaments for two man teams of men, women, veterans and a junior team giving the players something different and an extra day of competitive play.”
The Saturday and Sunday are the standard Grand Prix format of bands and then open singles events. Early booking is highly recommended to get good transport deals either by flying or on the ferry. Coupled with this we have negotiated an excellent deal with a hotel next door to our purpose built table tennis centre and also car hire with AVIS.
Everyone can therefore enjoy some excellent table tennis and couple it with a short break in our beautiful Island during Easter, which is a perfect time to see the Island at its very best. Not only this, but all the events over the three days carry prize money from a minimum fund of £ 2,500.00 with last year’s Men’s Singles Champion taking home £550.00 and the Ladies Singles Champion taking £380.00!
This is obviously another incentive for players to book their places early as there is a limited maximum entry. We will also be offering a training camp for the week after the tournament with full details of this to be released very soon. I would, however, strongly recommend that anyone interested in entering [and we have had a huge number already saying that they are coming over] to book without further delay so as to avoid disappointment.
Finally, we will be receiving 18 brand new top of the range table tennis tables and ancillary equipment as well early in January so another good reason to get the entry forms in now!”
