All Island Open TT ends in Kandy today


After a break, the table tennis scene in Kandy came alive on June 22 and will end today (June 24) with the completion of the All-Island Open Ranking tournament. Sri Lanka’s top three players – Rohan Sirisena, Nirmala Jayasinghe and Dinesh Deshapriya should feature prominently.

Indika Prasad may not go the distance. However, sixth ranked Udaya Ranasinghe, still under fifteen, is a player to be watched. Ishara Madurangi and Umaya Tharaki have put some distance between themselves and the others.
Nuwani Navodya can be a dangerous opponent. The Jagath Rajapaksa International Stadium is a bit off the beaten track. But those who make the journey are assured of a feast of table tennis. – AK
