    England’s No. 1 cadet table tennis star, Tin-Tin Ho, received a double boost this month with selections in two of the most prestigious youth table tennis events in the world.

    Her selections come following another successful year for the young prodigy in which she has reached the European cadet No. 1 position, won three medals at the European Youth Championships and become the new English Under-21s Champion at just 14.
     
    It will be the first time Tin-Tin has competed in the European Youth Top 10, a tournament involving the top 10 ranked players from across the continent, which is a real test for the elite players on the circuit.

    Diaconu and Malanina also make up part of the European team that will compete at the World Cadet Challenge against representative sides from around the world.
     
    The aforementioned pair plus Tin-Tin and Belgium’s Lisa Lung, will head to Slovenia to face competition from the likes of Asia, Africa, Latin America, North America, Oceania plus a World Hopes Team and the host Slovenia side in singles, doubles and team competitions.
     
    Last year the English girl, who also won a medal at the Commonwealth Championships in India with the England’s Women’s Senior team, helped Europe to the team final while also securing 6th place in the singles and a doubles semi-final.
     
    Quote:
     
    Tin-Tin Ho, 15 Athlete – “I am very happy to have been selected for the European Youth Top 10, I am always really excited to represent my country especially as this will be my last European cadet tournament where I will be facing the best competition that Europe has to offer.”
