    Tin-Tin to challenge in Europe Top 10

    Table Tennis English Cadet No.1, Tin-Tin Ho, has become the latest home-grown player to be selected for the Europe Youth Top 10 tournament, which takes place in Terni, Italy on September 20-22, 2013

    The 14-year-old, who will turn 15 shortly before the tournament begins, has become the first female qualifier since Joanna Parker finished sixth in Mulgetta, Italy in 2005.

    Her selection is no real surprise after spending the entire season in the European Top 10, even leading the rankings for a short period of time earlier in the year.

    Her three medals at the recent European Youth Championships (Singles bronze, Doubles silver and Mixed silver) were a further reminder of her prodigious talent that has seen her triumph twice on the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Cadet Singles circuit in the Portuguese Youth Open 2011 as well as a convincing win over the world number 1 cadet to win the French Youth Open in 2012.

    She starts the round-robin tournament as the fourth seed behind firm favourite Marie Migot of France and her fellow European team mates Adina Diaconu from Romania and Maria Malanina from Russia.

    Tin-Tin, from Paddington, London, started playing table tennis at the age of 5 and is currently the cadet, junior and under-21 National champion as well as being ranked number 4 in Europe in the cadet rankings. She said: “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”
