Season Opening 2016 Overall Winners

The Namibia Table Tennis Association (NTTA) launched a successful Season’s Open Tournament in the Capital on 2 April 2016 when table tennis players from around the country lined up to display their skills. The event was dominated by the SKW Table Tennis Club who claimed the top positions in all categories, except in the junior ladies category. Gold for senior men was well-deserved by Tomas Zapata with consistent performance throughout the tournament, followed by Heiko Fleidl, Wayne Green and Dietrich Möwes, all from SKW. The veteran, Christa Mrozek (SKW) secured the senior ladies title when she edged out her junior challenger, Reese Saunderson. Kaitlyn Beukes and Bregida George, all from Eliminators, secured 3rd and 4th positions respectively.

Yannick Böhn outsmarted tournament favourite, Dietrich Möwes in the final to win gold in the junior men category. Both players are from SKW. TT Club Delton Dreyer from Mariental High School and Kean Tait from Windhoek Gymnasium were 3rd and 4th respectively.

The junior ladies title was decided between the long-standing rivals, Reese Saunderson (Oranjemund Private School) and Kaitlyn Beukes (Windhoek Gymnasium). The former just had the edge over her team mate from Eliminators.

Despite a number of junior players from the capital and the Hardap Region not being able to attend, it was still very encouraging to see a number of new junior players. It was also positive to note the progress of the junior players with 2 junior players ended amongst the top 5 in the men’s category while 2 junior ladies finished in the top 3 positions in the senior ladies category.

The next tournament is the Rehoboth Junior Open, which is around the corner on 23 April 2016.
