Table tennis, anyone?

Yukon’s Ping-Pong cabal is on the hunt for youthful competitors with table tennis glory in their blood. Sunday, Table Tennis Yukon will host a Squad Identification Tournament, to suss out any local talent for the 2008 Arctic Winter Games in Yellowknife, NWT.

“We’re hoping to get some people out that might not have thought they could do it,” said Yukon coach Kevin Murphy, who’s looking for a diamond in the rough.

The Arctic Games team is four boys, four girls, in two age groups. Juniors must be born in 1990 or later, and juveniles must be born in 1993 or later.

Murphy said there are some strong players competing for spots on the team, especially in the junior division, but the juvenile division is in need of some fresh talent. “We’d like a bigger group of athletes to draw from,” he added.

Team Yukon table tennis is planning to attend the Richmond Open in early February, to warm up for the AWG in March.

After that, Murphy said the team will set its sights on the Western Canadian Open in Vancouver in May, and the National Championships in Halifax in July.

“We’re also looking ahead to the 2011 Canada Winter Games … it’s not that far off, really,” said Murphy.

The Squad Identification Tournament starts at noon, Sunday at Whitehorse Elementary School. Table Tennis Yukon members can enter for $5, non-members for $10.
