The Junior Development branch of the BCTTA has been active in helping our talented kids become future champions since its inception in 1973. In that year, led Dr. Chandra Madhosingh, the BCTTA sponsored the inaugural British Columbia Secondary School Table Tennis Championships (BCSSTTC) tournament. In 2023, the BCSSTTC tournament will run its 50th edition, and as in previous years, legions of young aspiring table tennis players will experience their first serious competition, a well-organized event that brings out dozens of high school teams from all over the province. The 50th BCSSTTC takes place on March 3 and 4, 2023 at Moscrop Secondary School, 4433 Moscrop Street in Burnaby. This exciting event is open to the public and the organizing committee invites you to come by and cheer for your fave team. Expect to see future champions in action including current members of the BC junior team squad!
The BCTTA will be there to cover the event, and our communications director, William Vrabel, a participant in the first BCSSTTC tournament in 1973, will award the medals to the event’s winners on behalf of the board of directors.
Next week we’ll be publishing an article on this year’s event, complete with photos and results!
