Local table tennis tourney attracts world ranked players
The Canadian Chinese Table Tennis Association in Markham played host to the Double Fish Cup last month.
The event, part of the Association’s 10th anniversary celebration, hosted a global compliment of invited professionals and ambitious “non-professional” to compete for $50,000 in prize money. It also boasted a large Chinese contingent including top 20 world ranked players, in addition to players from Puerto Rico, Romania, Croatia, USA, Mexico, Brazil and even some local talent.
The men’s open class was won by Yu Zhou of China, who also earned silver in doubles at the 2015 World Table Tennis Championships, while the Non-Pro division was taken by 14-year-old Alexander Bu of Toronto.
