Maccabiah table tennis trial dates announced


Trial dates for Table Tennis at the 2013 Maccabiah Games in Israel have been announced by Maccabi GB, in partnership with UJIA.

The trials will take place at Kulanu in Kenton on Sunday July 15 from 1pm. The day is open to players of all age groups including: Youth (U18), Open and Masters (40+) and for both male and female competitors. Players of all abilities are invited to take part.

Mel Davidson, chairman of Maccabi GB Table Tennis, commented: "The trials for the Maccabiah Games are always an exciting time as we look to send the strongest squad possible to Israel next summer.

"The standard of table tennis within the community is particularly high at the moment, however we invite everyone to come along and try-out.

"The squad we sent to the European Maccabi Games in Vienna last summer was our most successful ever and we hope to repeat this success next year."

Lee Vandermolen and Dov Katz have been appointed Maccabiah Sports Co-Chairs, with Katz also acting as Team Manager, following the record-breaking medal haul in Vienna last year.

Vandermolen experienced his first international Maccabi Games at the European’s in Vienna last year and Katz has a long Maccabi history having been involved in a number of international Maccabi events including six European and five Maccabiah Games.
